This week over at Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge it is the turn of the lovely Pam to set the challenge. Well I say lovely, but seeing as she has asked us to make
cards and projects, I'm not so sure :-D
Luckily with Fathers Day just around the corner I had no excuse to procrastinate (ooh, look at me and the big words!!) as I have got about 8 to make, and before you think I've got some really odd family set up, no it's just the total needed from my kids to HB, and to their Granddads, and from us to our respective parents... so 8 it is!! Oh my word, that is quite a lot isn't it, I'd best get cracking on them!!
You don't have to make a fathers day card, any male themed card is just fine!
If you have time why not pay the other Ladybugs a visit, as this week we are welcoming the lovely Julie as a GDT member while Hayley takes a little break.
OK, so enough of the blah blah blah and onto my card
I decided to use Football Jack, just love his little cheeks!! I have to say my youngest son is starting to look like Jack... I think it's that cheeky boy look!!
I used some of the new My Mind's Eye - Lime Twist "Out of The Blue", some Dotty Bazzill, and some Blue Ric-Rac. The sentiment on the front is one of the ones that comes with the Olivia set from the BFF collection, although it's probably best not to let Jack know that they are from a girls set, as I don't think he'd appreciate it, LOL! I was going to use some of the football die cuts that I cut a few weeks ago, but as I'd done this card as an A6 size, they looked a bit too big, and I found these footballs lurking at the bottom of my embellishment drawer which were a better size
After breaking my Martha Stewart stars punch a while ago I was border less but decided to give welding some stars up in the Cricut design programme thingy a go, and I think it works quite well!!
I went all simple for the inside, leaving enough room for Sam to try and sign it!!
Thanks for popping in, hope you like today's card :-)
P.S. Please can I enter my card into these challenges
