Dad....

Hello, friends!  Hope your week is going well.   So far so good here, except that the weather is not so great. Hopefully that will change in the next few days.   Anywhoo... on to my card.  I can't believe it, but I actually got a card done for the current Timeless Tuesday challenge and I got it done on the first day of the challenge!    I had been wanting to make a card using the current Deconstructed Sketch and the new TT challenge was the perfect fit.



This week the challenge is to make a father's day card.   I only have one set from Flourishes that has father's day sentiments in it and that is "What a Catch", so I got that out and went to work.  I was also being thrifty today and dug through all my scraps to come up with the patterned papers to use on the card.  I believe they are from the My Mind's Eye Breeze 6x6 pad. I had a headache earlier as I was making the card so I decided to keep things simple and not spend the extra time coloring the fish image.  But I have to say that I really like how it looks simply stamped using SU!'s Taken with Teal ink.  I stamped the word "Dad" on the main image panel and then finished off the inside (sorry didn't take a picture) with additional sentiments from the set that say "You're so fly.  Happy Father's Day".

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Kraft & white; SU! Island Indigo; Stamps:  Flourishes:  What a Catch; Ink:  SU! Taken with Teal & Chocolate Chip; Bakers Twine:  Flax from the Twinery; Papers:  My Mind's Eye
