Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day everyone!! 

It is officially summer here in CT and the hot weather is upon us. The humidity is low, something that I am thankful for. It will be a low key day here as Charlotte is at work and Chris doesn't really like to make a big deal out of things like birthdays or Father's Day. (Unlike me who wants to be treated like a QUEEN!)

Just popping in with a "live" post today as I had some time yesterday to whip up some quick cards for some challenges.

My first card is a birthday card for the Paper Craft Crew Challenges. It is late, which is a bummer. I thought I had time but decided to watch a movie with Chris last night instead of posting. Oh well.

This was inspired the Paper Craft Crew Sketch #381, the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge WWC276 Anything Goes with a Masculine Twist and Seize the Birthday Challenge-Anything Goes.


I decided to use my new Home Brew Combo stamp and die set by Waffle Flower Crafts to create my card. I was originally making this for my nephew but remembered as I was finished that I he does not drink beer!!! However, I have a ton of people I can send my card to.

I colored in the beer glasses with Copic Markers and did some ink blending with Distress Inks on the beer bottle (Mowed Lawn) and the icon (Mustard Seed and Wild Honey).

I also flicked some Walnut Stain in the background but the icon covered up most of it.

I die cut the stars from silver mirrored cardstock using the Fun-Fetti Fri-dies from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

I am not great at making masculine cards so I am so happy how this turned out!!!

For my second card, I used the Waffle Flower Home Brew Combo stamp and die set, as well as the Be a Panda die set to make my husband a father's day card. My husband LOVES pandas so I had to use it. My daughter gave this to him for Father's Day and wrote the SWEETEST note inside!!

Yes, my panda is holding a beer!! My husband LOVES craft beer and likes to try all different kinds so this was perfect for him!!

The speech bubble is a retired die from Simon Says Stamp.

The background was a scrap from My Mind's Eye that is probably about ten years old!!!

I even decorated the inside a bit. Can you tell that I just LOVE this set? I rarely buy from Waffle Flower but when I do, I LOVE what I create!!

That is all from me today. I thank you for taking the time to stop by. I hope everyone has a FABULOUS day!!!

Try to stay cool!!
