Happy Dad's Day

Happy Wednesday everyone!! Hope your week is going well so far.  We're getting closer to the weekend - yay!

I love celebrating the men in my life just not making masculine cards.  Eek!!  They are such a huge challenge for me since I can't add a bow or flower in any open space.  Thankfully, I only have a couple more to go and then I'm done! Phew!

Today I'm sharing a card for Dad's Day using this cute little Edwin. 

I used up some old, and I mean old, Making Memories paper from the Eliza collection.  I've distressed everything in Memento Desert Sand and colored him in Copics.  I've used a Sharpie White Poster Paint pen for his cheeks and the highlights on the rose he's holding.  The tiny blue brad was in my stash, too!

Thanks for stopping today and taking a peek.  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Love Is The Best Medicine

Good morning everybody!! 

How was your weekend?  Do anything fun?  Maybe get in your crafty space??

I have been working on this card in piecemail since the latest MFT sketch hit the SCS forum last Wednesday!  What a busy week/weekend its been!!

I'm thrilled to finally get to show you what I whipped up:

A friend of mine just recently had surgery, and so I thought this little cutie from the PI Girl Doctor stamp set was absolutely perfect to send her some get well wishes.  I colored her in Copics - mostly using the C's.  I used some Wassau and Recollections cardstock, as well as some gorgeous papers from the MME Breeze collection.  There are some self-adhesive faux black pearls from Recollections and some yellow/white twine from American Crafts.  The button and crocheted flower were in my stash.  

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead of you!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Father's Day TGF-Style

Morning friends!!

Have a quick post today to share a quick card I made for Father's Day using Edward from The Greeting Farm.

I kept it rather simple since the chevrons were quite busy; and just distressed and inked the edges of all the papers in some black Making Memories ink.  Less is sometimes more, right?  ;)  The papers are a mix of DCWV and MME Breeze collection.  I added some light blue self-adhesive gems from Paper Studio in the corners and near the sentiment to finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek.  Hope you have a wonderful day!
