2 Father's Day Cards

 1st Father's Day card was inspired by 3 challenges...

Addicted to Stamps & More // #ATS&M469 ...An "any occasion" challenge!!  With Father's day coming up, I picked it as my "any occasion".  Here's to all the dads out there...we celebrate you!!  My second card also fits this challenge since it is also a Father's Day card.

Inspired By Challenges // #IB292 ...A "photo inspired" challenge with an optional sketch.  Today I just used the photo, and tried to reproduce it as close as possible using Stampin Up oar dies.

Double Trouble // #DT168 ...A "Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3" challenge!!  The challenge given by Thing 1 was to create a masculine card.  (My 2nd card also fits this challenge too.) Thing 2 wants us to play along with the color challenge from Colorful Options and Thing 3 wants us to upload out challenge to both blogs!  I played along with all of yall today!!

Colorful Options // JUN2024 ...A color challenge!!  AQUA is the color for the month of June.  For today's card I picked a lighter shade of aqua...kinda like the water surronding the turtle on the graphic.

Update: This card was chosen as an "honorable addict" over at Addicted to Stamps & More.  Thanks to the design team for the shout out on my card!!  It is always an honor to have one of my cards showcased!!

2nd Father's Day card was inspired by 2 challenges...

Just Add Ink // #JAI705 ...A "just add" technique challenge!!  For this current challenge they are asking us to just add a  "fancy edge".  I used a die to create a fancy edge on three of my edges.

TGIF Challenges // #tgifc476 ...A color challenge!!  Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Azure Afternoon are the colors called for in this current challenge.  I felt like this was a great masculine combo with a beach how about some shells for that beach loving dad!?!
