This week's challenge at Phindy's Place is a theme challenge - FATHER'S DAY.

I must admit I've had so many problems with Computers and Printers this week that this is the quickest card I think I've ever made.  No time to faff about - just go for it so I hope you like it.  One good thing about leaving my card until the last minute meant that I could use this gorgeous new image called RIDING ALONG available here.

I made this card is such a hurry to add to blog in time that I haven't been able to do the inside yet!


Medium:  Copics, Black pen, Sukura pen
