My Weekend Warrior from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a masculine card that I made.  Anyone who knows me AT ALL knows that I love to make cards for guys!  This handy man is called Weekend Warrior (Sku#4378).

I love to use metal on guy cards.

I used some alphabet brads to spell out dad.

Since the inside needed to be flat I used some tool dies that I had.  It was the first time that I used them and I love how they turned out.  Don't laugh...I used the inside safety seal to a jar of nuts to make the tools.  It was a sturdy silver material so I saved it and cut them out of it.  Recycle, Reuse, Reduce! Right?

I Brake For Lighthouses

Hello and happy Saturday!

I realize that Father's Day has come and gone but I still wanted to share the card that I made for my Father-In-Law because I think it goes way beyond Father's Day.  This would make a beautiful birthday, retirement, thinking of you etc....card. 

Dad lives in Florida now and even when he was here local he lived on a lake.  He's always loved being around the water.  I know he really enjoyed this card. 

I used the beautiful Large Lighthouse from I Brake For Stamps.

The anchor was cut with a Quickutz die and it was colored with Copic markers.

Red, White and Blue Challenge...Best Dad EVER!

Hello Ai fans!

Today we begin another challenge over at Art Impressions.  This time we're going Red, White and Blue!  I've decided that Independence Day and Father's Day are close enough that THE GRILL FATHER would probably be dressed in his red, white and blue while he was grilling.

The verse is from FDMD Set (Sku#4454).

I stamped the verse from the set inside of one of the Spellbinders Conversation Bubbles.  I thought the cloud was cute since he was grilling outdoors.
