Free Father's Day Card Download!

The Crafter's Companion UK website has a fantastic free June download for it's members and friends.
I have a link to it here.  It is a special "One for the Men" set of papers to create a lovely Father's Day card.  When an appointment got delayed I found myself with an extra hour of free time so I downloaded the set of papers and printed them onto white card stock.

Everything looked so great just sitting on my table.  I finally broke down and selected the elements I wanted to work with.  I could have made a dozen Father's Day cards!
 In the end though, I did make my one special card with these items.

The finished card is perfect....and way ahead of schedule!
