Happy Father's Day! --PP298 and SSC128

June 5, 2016

This has been a very fun weekend!  My birthday was yesterday, so I had so many special moments!  Calls, texts, emails, Facebook messages, cards and special time with family!  That is what it's all about!  I am feeling loved!  THANK YOU to all that remembered me on my special day!  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!  

I am the hostess of The Paper Players and I have a fun theme challenge this week.  Let's honor all the dads, grandfathers, husbands, step fathers, sons and men that have played the role of dad!  

Sunday Stamps has a fabulous sketch challenge.  It is so versatile!  We can't wait to see all of your fabulous for both challenges!  

I am also entering my card in the Cards 4 Guyz Challenge #123 and The Male Room #37.  They have a Father's Day theme, too this week!  

My card was created using the Your Next Stamp set  Sports Fanatics Two.  The baseball image was stamped on Neenah Solar White paper.  I stamped it twice once in red and once in black.  I cut the stripes off and added them to the black outline and shaded and colored it with Copic Markers.  The base card is white and I added Real Red behind each layer of patterned paper.  The paper pack is from Doodlebug: Home Run.  The patterned paper was cut with My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I added a strip of Real Red and stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  A white enamel dot was added for fun.  A little Wink of Stella was added on the bat and his cap.  The inside sentiment says, "Have a Ball".  I just didn't get a picture to share with you.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!
