Just A Few Friends Father's Day Blog Hop


How are you?  I hope the answer to that was great!! I am because I'm off today :-) Yay!
Today we are having our Father's Day card Blog hop with Elsa at Just a few designs.
Hopefully you started the hop with Elsa and now you're coming to me from Sherain.

Elsa challenged us this month to create a Father's Day card.  It was lots of fun discussing 
this in our  FB group since many of us have a hard time creating masculine cards.  For my 
cards I was inspired by my grand daughters.  Since I will be giving these to them to give 
away I decided to create through their eyes, if that makes any sense to you. 
 I know what they like and so this is what I came up with....

For the first one I used the 6 x 6 paper "Playdate" by MME.  I added some scrabble 
pieces to go with the sentiment which is a Fiskars clear stamp set.  On the second card
the first layer paper is from "On the bright side" also from MME.  The second paper is
from Tim Holtz.  I used a Bingo card and the sentiment is from Joanne's dollar bin.
The mustache is from Spare parts as well as the washi tape.  Then the scrabble pieces,
and two cards done for their Daddy and their Papa.  Here is my YT Video for details.

Since I am the last one on the line up, I want to thank you all for hopping 
along with us.  I hope that we all have inspired you in some way and that you had 
fun.  Maybe tag us and show us what you create.  And have a wonderful
Father's Day with those you celebrate with.
