Extremely Late Father's Day Card

So...yeah. I am definitely really behind in sending stuff out to people, Father's Day cards included. I sent one to my dad on time and gave one to my husband on Father's Day, but I didn't get this card made for my Napa, father-in-law and step-father-in-law until last night and I finally mailed them out today. Better late than never right? ;) I made this card using my new MFT stamps, I love their products! They have great customer service so far too. I ordered something that was actually out of stock and they sent me a nice e-mail saying they would refund my money and let me know as soon as it was back in stock and they would not charge me for shipping when I re-order it.
The inside sentiment is from the same stamp set from MFT Stamps.

Paper: Tartan Plaid from the Basic Grey "Jovial" Collection
Stamps: "Let's Hear It For the Boys!" set from MFT Stamps
Embellishments: Kaisercraft Pearls in "Latte"
Markers: Colored in stamp with plain old Crayola markers

Thanks for stopping by! <3

Number One Dad

Hey everyone! I finally made my husband a Father's Day card...on Father's Day while he was at work! Talk about last minute, haha. I am about 34 weeks pregnant now and the heat and humidity out here is starting to get to me. I spend most of my time in bed elevating my feet to try to get the swelling to go down when I want to craft, but I have to rest as much as I can. Anyway, I made this card using the current sketch from Mojo Monday, I love their blog, they give me just the inspiration I need. I thought this card was so perfect for my husband, he is a huge sports fanatic. Thanks for stopping by! <3
Here's a shot of the inside. I used my stamps from My Creative Time.

Paper: 7Gypsies Barcelona Paper in Baradell
Stamps: "Happy Father's Day" sentiment from My Creative Time's "You're My Best Buddy" set
Cricut: Rectangular shape cut from Storybook at 3 1/2", Football cut from Wrap It Up cart at 1 1/2"
Cuttlebug: Football embossed with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder
Embellishments: "No.1" letters and number from KI Memories Mini Alphabet Soup in Mushroom

Dad's Father's Day Card

So it's been a little while since I've posted anything. I finally finished my online class and now I am taking the next semester or two off while I get ready for the baby to get here. Now that I have a little more time, I need to catch up on my cardmaking and scrapbooking! My first order of business is to finish Father's Day cards. I didn't realize how close it is to Father's Day already, how time flies! Anyway, I got this sketch from Mojo Monday. If you enter a submission by 8pm Mountain Time on Sunday, 12 June, you enter for a chance to win a set of Verve stamps! I used the Winter Wonderland cart to cut the circle and the scallop circle because I don't have these punches. Thanks for stopping by! <3
