father's day

I thought I'd rustle up a small handmade gift this year for Vin to give to Carlos for Father's day along with his proper present... and unfortunately I was foolish enough to suggest to others that I might do so too.... so in the end, I kind of had to... And um... today was the last day to do it!

But it's all good. Now...!

The canvas never took very long to make, and I admit it was fun to do - and actually made a nice change from doing layouts, so as long as he likes it (and I'm sure he will), then it was worth the bit of effort that it took today.

Apologies for the odd look of the photo - I had to take this picture on the stairs as there was just too much 'light' everywhere else... and I never thought I had a bright house, ifkwim?

Anyway, I got so frustrated going from room to room, I just scanned it in the end... So9, there there you are - the finished result!

That's gorgeous Jake, what size is it? xx

The photo's a 5x7 Annette, and the canvas is 9.5 x 7.5 - only a cheapie from Poundland :-) A bit of paint, pen and a scrap of paper plus buttons from my tin of odds and ends.

(cheapskate me... he he)
