Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads in my life!

Here are the cards I created for these three unique men. The first card is based on Sweet Sunday Sketch #21. I received this image from LittleKel90 through WRAK and used chalks to accent the scene:

Stamps: SU 'Noble Deer', Clear Artistic Stamps 'I'm Just Saying'. Cardstock: Kraft, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla, DP from SU's Simply Scrappin' 'Tailor-Made'. Ink: Close to Cocoa, Blue Bayou. Accessories: blue brads, square punch, chalks.

The second card also features the Simply Scrappin' Tailor-Made kit, but is based on the Fiskar's sketch which is also this month's WRAK sketch challenge. There are actually no stamps used on this card; the sentiment is a rub-on. Thanks going out to WRAKers for the Chocolate chip and Sahara Sand cardstock supplies:

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, SP from SU's Simply Scrappin Tailor-Made kit. Accessories: Papertrey Chocolate satin ribbon, blue ribbon unknown source, circle punch, 'Chit Chat' rub ons, Spellbinders' 'Standard Tag'.

For my last card, I used the WRAK 'super' color challenge and cardstock provided by my WRAK friends, the sketch by Friday Sketchers and the image, gingham and handcrafted pizza from leenk (Eileen)'s card kit. I'm planning to tuck a gift card to my step-dad's favorite pizza chain inside:

Stamp: Stampabilities Gruffies. Cardstock: Textured white, Real Red, Summer Sun, Pacific Point, GP110. Ink: Versafine. Accessories: Prismacolor pencils, turpenoid, oval Nesties, yellow brads.

Wishing all the dads out there a super Father's Day!
