Recycled 'Dad'

My son now 22 couldn't decide what kind of card he wanted for his dad for father's day. He knew what he didn't want ,not cute ,not soppy, not too many bits,no cars or drinks or food, no sports,no computers, what was I left with, I saw a card by Marybeth and when I was sat pondering what to do for my son's father's day card I thought I would use her for inspiration,that and I recently got some new dies.

Now I couldn't remember exactly how Marybeth had done hers apart from she had used pinpoint rectangles from either Memory box or poppy stamps but I look  at them so often coveting what I haven't got that the two are one in my mind.

I don't have pinpoint rectangles but I had some new stitched rectangles just waiting to be tried, so I rummaged through my blue scraps file and started cutting. I knew what effect I wanted but I couldn't get a patchwork without a hole in the middle. I eventually gave in and decided on an extra patch to cover the hole.

I have a pot on my desk that has all kinds of odd sentiments in it, ones I have stamped and then decided not to use, ones I have printed and again changed my mind ,some bought ones and some that are recycled from cards that I have liked and it was one of these I decided to use.

Once I had decided what I was doing and the layout quite a quick card. Just realised I said a while ago I was going to do more concise posts with less waffle , didn't last long did it.
Hope you all have a fun day.
