loving father...

Hello friends!!  The weekend is almost here!   It is the last week of school for both my boys and the last few days have been crazy running from one thing to another!   I haven't had much time to make anything, but got some time this morning to make this little card.   On Sunday I found out that my CASology #47 card (little yellow bike) was picked as a top 3 winner for the Catered Crop Mellow Yellow challenge.   That meant that I had the opportunity to be a guest designer for the new Catered Crop "For the Boys" Quickfire Challenge!!   After I said "yes" to guest designing I then thought "yikes... what am I going to make?"  I don't have a ton of guy stamps.  But I do have this fabulous new set from Verve called Strong Anchor (and the matching dies!)... just the ticket!


The layout for the card is based on the newly re-launched Sketch For You To Try.   SFYTT is now sponsored by Reverse Confetti Stamps.  If you haven't checked out their stamps yet, you really should cuz they are super cute!  Hoping to add more RC stamps to my collection soon!  Anywhoo... I used some papers from the My Mind's Eye Kate & Co. 6x6 pad and several different SU! inks.   The cue little anchors were die cut using my Verve nautical dies and stamped using the coordinating anchor image from Strong Anchor.  I finished off the interior of the card with a die cut flag and the sentiment "You are my strong anchor". 

Thanks for stopping by... and make sure you check out the Catered Crop For the Boys challenge.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Night of Navy; Bazzill light blue; Stamps:  Verve Strong Anchor; Dies:  Verve Nautical Dies, My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Stax dies; Inks:  SU! Baja Breeze, So Saffron & Night of Navy
