Hey Daddy-O!

As I'm sure you know... Father's Day is coming up this weekend! Since my Dad is going to be away, I gave him his card early... which means I can share it with you early :)

I had so much fun making this card, once I finally got on with it, and I'm totally ready to keep making masculine cards now! Here's my card, featuring Danny by Kraftin' Kimmie & and his shiny bike (seriously... it sparkles with Spica pen!):


... and the inside:

... and a close up:
I went a little crazy using Tim Holtz products on this one... in fact, I think the only things that aren't by Tim are the bookplate (from my stash), the stamps (Kraftin' Kimmie) & Copics, the punch, ribbon and the chunky glass glitter!

Tim Holtz goodies I used:
  • Patterned Paper (not sure why I waited till now to cut into this pad!)
  • Film Strip Ribbon
  • Tissue Tape
  • Stick Pin
  • Edge Distresser
  • Stamps (on background paper)
  • I'm entering this card into a few challenges, too! My sketch is from CLP #37, Kraftin' Kimmie Challenged us to add "24 Krafty Karrots" (aka GOLD), Stamptacular Sunday is celebrating Dad's & Grads and Scrap Creations says Anything Goes and Stamp Something wants Something Punched! I love that I get to play along with challenges for my friend's DT's! this month, and it's always nice when I can join a few challenges!

    p.s. if you are looking for a fab sketch to use on a project... check out the month long challenges at Graphicat Sketches & Seriously Creative Challenges! Both feature fab sketches by Cheri this month!

    and it looks even more fabulous in person!! I love all the Holtz'd up goodness on it, and I'm still considering wether or not I'm going to snag that Kraftin Kimmie stamp for my own stash or not ;)~
