Happy Fathers Day

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with ColourQ, CASology, Addicted to Stamps and CAS(E) this Sketch. I gave this card to my husband this year I do hope you enjoy it. 

I sponged only the corner and edges per the sketch challenge. I used Distress Inks; Faded Jeans, Old Paper, and Antique Linen. A little bit of water was used to blend in the hard edges.
The gears are one die cut that I cut at a 45 degree angle along the
largest gear to make it around the corner.  
Detail showing the die cut gears, sponging and sentiment.
Challenges Entered:
CASology: Week #202- Masculine
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS#177
ColourQ: cQc#346
Addicted to Stamps: Challenge #198- Holiday


Happy Father's Day to all the men out there privileged to have children call them 'Dad'! The men in my life are so paramount for my happiness and who I am today. Some are here with me and some are enjoying the universe but all of them have/has played a significant roll in my life. I honor them today with a prayer of love, kindness, and gratitude that is unmeasurable. Thank you for being mine. 

And speaking of men, I have a crafty announcement! You may have seen the announcement on The Male Room that I am one of their newest Design Team members! I couldn't be happier and more excited to start my position. 

Well now that I am as stuffed as a turkey I am going to waddle off to the couch with my husband and cuddle. Then walk the dog with our children in tow. Thank you so much for joining me once again at TheGrandStampede. I do appreciate every visit comment or not. So, until next time take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

Such a cool card, you do masculine cards so fact you do all cards fabulously and so creatively but doing masculine cards can be tricky and you've nailed it! So many congratulations on the Design Team appointment over at The Male Room (see I told you do male cards so well xx lol xx). They are lucky to have you and are very clever in choosing you to be on their team. Thanks for today's inspiration and look forward to popping in again soon. CONGRATULATIONS crafty friend x
