Hello again, it's Wednesday and time to upload my card for this weeks Peachy Keen Challenge which is a Sketch. I drew the sketch on my white board and looked at it a dozen times a day since friday. I kept running ideas around in my head but nothing seemed right. Earlier this evening while trying to watch Idol but thinking more about the challenge it came to me. So I missed American Idol and came up here to create this!
I knew I wanted to make a Father's day card but everything I tried just wasn't working, sometime's I find it so hard to make masculine cards, do you have that problem to?
I made the strip with one of my EK success border punches that I ran through on both sides, wow that was close...it was just wide enough but I thought it looked pretty cool, what do you think? The strip on the inside is the negative from the stars I cut out to make a little banner that said Thanks DAD, but it didn't look right either. I used the small fiskars four leaf clover punch to write #1 and to stand for two things "your #1" and "I'm 'lucky' to have you for my dad".
All paper is from my stash, I have drawers and drawers of scrap paper that I am trying to use up, I go to them before cutting a full sheet and rarely know who it's by. The stamp on the front is from a $1.00 studio G set from Michaels, the bird and the inside sentiment are from the PK-268 Happy Mother's Day set, but I didn't ink up the first part of the sentiment which says Thank you! The mats for my lil birdie are spellbinders classic squares and classic scalloped squares, I just doubled up the white ones to create my rectangle. What do you think?
Please let me kknow what you think of my card so I can pop over to you and check out what you've been up to lately and leave you some love to. Have a great day and happy scrappin'!
