Happy Father's Day

Hope the men in your life who are Fathers had a great day celebrating with family. I know I did. Our kids and grandkids came over after church today and spent the day with us. I had my brother and his kids over for dinner tonight. It was a full but fun day.

This card I made for my Dad. I used a wood grain embossing folder and inked with Tim Holtz distress ink Vintage Photo. I first inked it by rubbing the pad over the embossed paper. giving the grain a darker color. Then using my blending tool I inked again covering the paper in between the embossed areas. I am entering this card in Jo's Scrap Shack Fun Friday Challenge #4. This week's challenge is "Anything goes".

The image and sentiment are from the stamp set Horse Frontier from Stampin' Up. Taking a water pen I dipped into Tim Holtz distress ink Mowed Lawn and added green to the grass.

I made this card for Doyle. The paper is Authentique and scraps from another project. The pocket was from one of the papers in that line that I cut out and hand stitched to the dotted paper. The sentiments are from the stamp set "Dad Rocks" by Technique Tuesday.

This card I made for my brother. This paper is also Authentique and scrap from another project. I used another sentiment from the same stamp set as above with the exception of the word "Bro". It is from "You're the Man" by Cardz TV Stamps. I cut the sentiment apart to place on the card the way I wanted it and popped with foam tape.
This card I made using scraps from Blissful Blizzard by Fancy Pants.The sentiment is also from "You're the Man" by Cardz TV Stamps. I used foam tape behind the sentiment.

I'm slipping. I didn't take any family photos this time. Although I did get one of Kashton.
Have a good one.
