Freshly Made Sketches #90: You're the Best!

I have one more card to show you today.  I quickly whipped this card up for my final Father's Day card.  I used the Freshly Made Sketches #90 for this one.  The "Someone to look up to" sentiment was cut from a piece of B&T paper from the It's A Guy Thing Paper Packet.  Below is a pic of all three cards I have made the last couple of days.  Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time.

#1 Dad Father's Day Card: Mojo Monday 297

What!!  I am on a Roll this week!  Partly because the weather has been rainy most of the week, so the kids and I have been hold up in the house.  Which means...more craft time! ;)

I am happy with the end result of this fun Father's Day card.  I have a lot of this It's A Guy Thing paper left over.  I love using the same paper for all of the Father's Day cards I am making.  Plus...I love using up my older paper to make room for new.

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch #297 for this card and I am also entering it in the Rose Blossom Garden Challenge Blog.  The challenge on this blog was to use the Father's Day key found on the Artiste Ciruct Cartridge.  This is my first time playing along with these challenges.  I hope to play again!

Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time.

H2H Challenge: Tool Time

I'm back!  I did actually make a Father's Day card after my last blog post.  I need to make 2 guess what I will be doing shortly!  I really like how this card turned out.  I was inspired by the card on pg. 57 of the May/June Papercrafts issue.  You can also see it here.  Just scroll down a bit. 
I am thinking this will be the perfect card for my wonderful Dad.  I will make one for my children to give to their Dad.  I also better whip one up for my hubby to give to his Dad....I think I will be a busy bee this afternoon!  I also decided to enter this in the H2H Challenge this week, called Tool Time.  My interpretation of this challenge is the fact that this Father's Day card is for my Dad who happens to love tools and I also used my favorite tool....the Cricut!  Works out perfectly! :)  Well...I am off to cut some more paper!  Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time.

Just a Card

I was fanning through my Pinterest board of cards and was inspired by this card here by fellow consultant, Wendy Coffman.  She is so super talented!  I visit her blog often for ideas.  I used the same Dotty for You papers, but changed them up a bit.  I also used a new stamp set called Girls Rock.  I absolutely love the flowers in this set.  I mean, can always use another flower stamp set.  I think I have about 50 of them!! ;)  I hope you enjoy this fun and easy on to make some Father's Day cards!  Thanks for stopping by.  See you next time.

Mojo Monday 296: Over the Hill?

Hello Blog friends.  Popping in with a very quick post so that I can enter this card in the Mojo Monday Challenge this week.  My husband's 40th birthday was this past week.  I couldn't post this on Monday because I did not want him to see it before I gave it to him.  Now, I am waiting until the last minute to post it.  By the way....40 is definitely NOT Over the hill.
