Father's Day Times 3

Good afternoon and how are everyone's preparations for tomorrow going? I have to make 3 Father's Day cards every year and here are my 3 for this year.

The first is for my FIL. The papers are Foundations from Creative Expressions. They were featured on a show on Creat & Craft earlier in the week. The sentiment is from a Popcorn the Bear stamp set and the Nautical stamps are one stamp separated but I can't remember who the manufacturer is. If you are interested email me and I will find out. I coloured the images with Distrss Inks

The second is hubby's card off the boys. It's Popcorn the Bear coloured with Twinks. I used the co-ordinating papers from the CD.

Last and not least is my Dad's card. I am not at all pleased with this and was almost embarrassed to send it to him. The picture is from one of the Creative Expressions Create-A-Scene stamp plates. I used Distress Inks to stamp it. The card shape is from one of the Keepsake boards.

This week, my store is sponsoring Crafty Catz Challenge blog. The theme is shaped cards and the above card is my GDT work. Oh well, better luck next time guys! I hope you like the prize I have donated.

I would also like to enter one or all of these cards into the One Stop Craft Challenge, which is One For the Boys.

OK, off to play with some new stamps and some Cosmic Shimmer..........

Have a good weekend.
