Father's Day with Lawn Fawn!

Happy Saturday!

When I met Linda and Daria the other night (see post here,) I picked up a fun set of alphabets from Lawn Fawn called, Quinn's ABC's. I love that the letters in this set are big and open!



I colored them in with my Copics and created a shadow effect.



I could not find a good match with a green button, so I took a white one, colored it with a green Copic, then added a bit of dotty texture with another, darker green Copic - fun!


Hubby and I had a lovely evening out last night with five other couples. A delicious dinner and a dessert that was amazing! I didn't think to take photos of the meal, but when that HUGE piece of cake came to the table, I had to take a pic! Would ya look at that!



Ya can't tell by the photo, but that's a dinner-sized plate! The cake was so big, the twelve of us shared the one piece. Yup, if you didn't know by now, I am quite the chocolate lover! - SO YUMMY!!

Thanks for your visit - hope everyone's having a wonderful weekend!

Great card Barb. A good alpha set is always a bonus. What an amazing looking piece of cake... I too, am a chocolate lover, but not good for a diabetic so have to limited myself to only a little bit now and then. I would have found it hard to limit that cake. Yummy~

Wow I want to go to that restaurant, drooling here as I type.
Great shading on the letters of your card and the mottled effect on the button looks great too.
