CAS Father's Day Card



We had an absolutely fabulous visit with my cousin and aunt and the weather could not have been better :)  Lots of good times together and memories to tide us over until the next time we can broach the 3,000 mile expanse between us.

Now that the guest room is free again, it took me no time to pop in there and get inky :)   This is the last Verve sketch for the month - phew!  It was a five weeker this month so we had to work hard for the chance to win some Verve goodies :)

Since it is CAS week, I jumped at the chance to use Verve's new Super Dad set and new banner die to create a Father's Day card.  Think this may be hubby's Father's Day card.

Starting to spazz out about the fact there is only one month of school left!!  Yikes!!  Have to book swimming lessons etc. and try to squeeze in as much stamping time as I can before the kids are home 24/7 and it becomes much harder to do.



What's In It?
Stamps: Super Dad (Verve)
Paper: Early Espresso, Cream Linen, Sahara Sand, Costco DP
Ink: Bordering Blue, Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  Distressed Striped Embossing Folder, PTI Tag Die, Banner Die (Verve), 5/8" Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Twine, Button, Dimensionals

Ahh, see? I took it easy on everyone this week! No skewed panels! Great job with this card, I'm sure that hubby will love it~ The colors are great and the banner die works perfectly! Glad you're able to get back into your craft cave...time to start kicking some cardmaking butt! :)

I hear you on squeezing in stamping time before kids come home. :/ I always think that since they are done with school, that I'll have more time to craft, but it never seems to happen.

Great dad card, Marisa!

Great masculine card I agree. The tag is perfect. I am sure you miss them, but having your room back to stamp is always nice too. hee hee
