Happy Father's Day

I can't believe it is the middle of June! This year is flying by. In honor of Father's Day, challenge #79 on Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a Father's Day card using any cart and color scheme you like. I made a few cards to give out and here is one of my favorites:


I have been using pretty much the same colors all week - it is what is on my messy desk at the moment, lol. Plus, I like to use up my scraps. This is a 5" X 5" card cut from Paper Trey Ink Kraft cardstock. I believe the scalloped square ( SU Mellow Moss) is from Accent Essential cut at 5"; I don't have my Gypsy with me today to tell you for sure. I also inked the edges with Bundled Sage distress ink. I cut the hammer and screw driver from Boys will Be Boys at 4", including the circle background using the orange, yellow and silver found in this weeks projects. I got the Mr. Fix it Stamp from the dollar bin at AC Moore. I stamped it in SU Summer Sun. If you've been reading my blog, I am a huge stickles person so even though it is a man card, I had to use stickles! I used Mustard Seed Distressed Stickles on the screw driver. I honestly think I have every color of stickles made, LOL.

So that is my card. I am giving it to my step dad because he is truly a Mr. Fix it. If we have a problem or something needs to be done, he is the man to go to. If you have a great card you made, this is a great challenge to enter it in as there are no restrictions. I hope everyone has a great Father's Day with the special fathers in their lives. Happy crafting!
