Polka Doodles #23: Father's Day / Anything Masculine

Brace yourself for another fortnight of challenges, friends! A new theme starts today: Father's Day / Anything Masculine. Here in Portugal we celebrate Father's Day on March 19th - the feast of St Joseph but who's to say we can't have another day to honour our fathers, husbands, brothers and all good men.

I made my manly card with digi images, patterned papers and ticket tags from the Work and Play 10 Country Life collection. The Gamekeeper is also available as a digi download. I did all my colouring with Faber Castell Polychromos.

Here's  closer look at the Gamekeeper. I'm still experimenting with my Polychromos. There are so many different ways to use these coloured pencils and so much to learn. I think I'm getting the hang of it ... sort of.

The three doggies turned out better than I expected. They look just like ours. Not sure what I did, but I love the scruffy little guy in the foreground. That's our Peanut, alright! LOL. And the sentiment on that ticket tag is just PERFECT!
