Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Masculine

Good morning Penny Black lovers, and welcome to June's Penny Black Saturday Challenge!
Thanks as always to everyone who entered last month's Anything Goes challenge - it was great to see all your fabulous entries ... but we couldn't help but notice there were several that were sadly ineligible for our fab prizes as they didn't use a Penny Black image. Don't forget - our only rule is that you need to follow the theme using a Penny Black image stamp, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your project.
Anyhoo, on to this month's challenge .. and with Father's Day just around the corner what better theme than
As always we have a fab range of prizes from our regular sponsors.

The rest of the DT have worked their Penny Black magic - here is what I did.
This is my dad's Father's Day card. I have to admit that I did struggle as I don't really have any overtly masculine PB stamps ... but when I delved into my box I thought that this cute pair of adult and child hedgies was quite suitable for the occasion.
This card also gave me opportunity to use my new Heart Banner die which I have had lurking in my stash for a couple of weeks, but there hasn't really been much crafting going on for me to use it ... and last but not least my yummy new LotV "Country Gent" papers which arrived Friday afternoon!!
Stamps: Penny Black "hugs" transparent set; LotV "Everyday Grungy Sentiments";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: LotV "Country Gent" and "Country Lady";
Tools: classic circles and labels three nestabilities; Magnolia Doohickey "Lovely Fence" die; La La Land "Heart Banner" die; Stephanie Weightman "Tattered Lace" die "Aphabet Retro" (from Hobbycraft).
