Happy Father's Day

What a great day here in Dallas!  Hot but sunny - perfect for Hubby to do nothing other than sitting by the pool (broken arm prevents him from doing much more than sitting poolside).  To start the day, we opened the cards I made - one from DD, one from me, and I even added one from his two best friends - his dogs!  Jeff adores those two dogs and is always taking them for long walks (to the point of exhausting them frequently) or just playing in the park.

I already posted one of the cards I made - here are the other two.  The first is based on a sketch from Viva la Verve weekly challenge on Splitcoast Stampers; the second is based on a sketch from the June card challenge at Sketches4All.  The title was cut on my Cricut using SCAL; the image on the small banner is from the Happy Hello stamp set from Verve.  The image on the heart is a combination of hand-drawn lines heat embossed with some cappucino embossing powder plus doodles I dotted on with a Sharpie.

Additional challenges (I am really piling it on this week):


  1. Two adorable cards - I like the colors, heart and paper on the first card and the second card has a darling sentiment and pretty colors. Thanks for joining us at There's Magic in the Air!

  2. Wow - Love both your cards. Thanks so much for joining us at Tuesday Alchemy.
