Father's Day

Greetings Family, Friends, and Crafty People,

I'm hoping everyone had a great weekend celebrating the special men in their lives.  In celebration of the special man in our house, the kids and I presented DH with a couple of cards and gifts, much to his surprise!  Now, don't laugh at the cards...especially the Heavy D card - LOL.  One of DH's favorite artists was Heavy D, so I rushed to buy the image from Robert Jackson's Gallery.  So, I've been waiting for the right time to use it... and no better time than Father's Day!!  The funny thing is that DH looks a little like Heavy D (minus the hi-top)...and he was wearing his purple suit when he opened the card!  Needless to say, FD started out with a big laugh!! 

Images:  Bill the Bull (Limited Runs); Heavy D (Robert Jackson)
Patterned Paper:  DCWV - Natural Stack; ??

Thanks for visiting my creative space!  Don't be a stranger... :-)

Challenge Winner in the House! Update

Happy Tuesday!

Just doing a quick celebratory post!  I won the Robert Jackson Friendship Challenge over at Scraps of Color!  Woo hoo!  My excitement is not focused on the prize, but at my project being chosen among the awesome projects that were submitted.  I am truly humbled by this experience...

The card that I submitted was a castle fold card; and I used the card fold tutorials provided at Beccy's Place.  Please be sure to stop by Beccy's blog, become a follower, and check out all of the great projects and tutorials she has for making cards.  I have always been a basic card maker - regular A2 or 5x7 cards; but Beccy's Place offers some awesome tutorials for making cards that are not so traditional.  Thanks, Beccy.  The image is a Robert Jackson digi - Girls Gone Wild, colored using my Copic MarkersThe paper is from DCWV - Basic Stack, Spring Card Stock, and Mariposa.

Now, here's the winning card... TFL!

TGIF and Happy Flag Day!!

Just wanted to post an update.  As a part of the RJ Friendship Challenge at SOC, we were supposed to send the card to a special friend.  Well, part of the challenge for me was that my friend is also a follower over at SOC.  So, what I did was modify the card slightly - maybe a little more than slightly, then mailed it to her.  Now that she's received it, I can post it.  LOL.  Here's the updated card.  TFL.
