We have shocking weather here just now. The wind and rain are causing so much damage. It looks like autumn at the moment with all the leaves falling from the trees and lots of large branches have snapped off. I want to get on with my garden but the plants and baskets would not have a chance just now.

On to my card. My Dad's birthday is soon and so is Father's Day so plenty of male cards to make.

I have used another of Ruth's digital images on A Passion for Stamps which is perfect for this type of card.

I also used promarkers to colour, sizzlets alphabet, Nesties and the papers are Linda Maron blue linen wash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
