HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!My father's Birthday was yesterday, Sept 15. He is a father of 5 with 6 grandchildren! He loves babies and little children so with a 3 month old and 2 five year old's among the 6 he is pretty happy right now. The other 3 are mine, ages 10, 14 and 16 and they love their Papa very much. I made this card for him using lots of Tim Hotz Distress Inks and an older "Close to My Heart" Stamp set that I was given a few years ago.
I used VersaFine in Olympic Green for the trees in the background and the onyx black for the fishermen. The Fishies were stamped with VersaFine in Vintage Sepia.
Here's the inside:
I stamped the inside with an American Crafts "Tent" Collection stamp (the trees) in the VersaFine Olympia Green and the Relax & Unwind semtiment is from Inspired By Stamping
My Dad enjoys Camping and has been an avid Fisherman all his life.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
Sweet Stamps Blog - Challenge #82 - For the Guys
Creative Craft Challenges2 - All about the Boys
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Challenge 24 - Cards for Men
Make it Monday
Lastly, I received a Challenge Badge from Mynettes Technique Tuesday Challenge Blog for their Re-inker on Baby Wipes technique challenge. It is a really neat way to create some beautiful images with stamps that have a more solid or blocked stamping image...here's a pic of my "Showcased" Card:
Thanks for stopping by and if you would be so kind as to consider subscribing to my blog it would sure put a smile on my face :) I will be giving some blog candy away soon and I can assure you it will be worth entering (I have a bad habit of hitting quantity 2 upon ordering stuff online and I really dislike returning items
Have a Blessed Sunday!
