Tuesday Two Fer!: Happy Father's Day


 Happy Tuesday! Two more days of school and a card made with these 2 challenges:




This is how I spent part of my holiday on Monday, the best part actually! hee! hee! I played along with the Retro Sketches #13 and the beautiful and patriotic inspirational photo challenge from The Play Date Cafe Challenge #133! I'm usually not organized enough to combine two challenges, so patting myself on the back here, ha!




This one's a little "busier" than some of my cards, but I pulled out  my scrap basket and went to town! I'll try to list the ingredients below, but it may be hit or miss on some. The one thing I love the most is how the Gina K Casual Fridays paper "aged" when I ran it through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Herringbone embossing folder. What yummy, aged texture! Hmmm, kind of like me! hee! hee!




Hope you're having a great Tuesday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!




Recipe
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes 
Ink: Stampin' Up! Basic Black marker.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake, bowling paper from some paper pad, red polka dot Daisy D (fairly sure), herringbone can't remember but it's nice and heavy!, and Gina K Casual Friday paper stack (blue denim).
