Happy Days!

Happy Sunday! Happy Father's Day! The "Happy Day" card can be customized inside with a greeting to celebrate whatever Happy Day it is you want to celebrate, right?!

I tried to step outside my comfort zone with purple tones for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #136, and for the second card, I also used the Unscripted Sketch #163. Unscripted Sketches also had a piggyback challenge to use vellum, so I plopped a little vellum embossed with the Chevron Embossing Folder in there. 

This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is to use clear acetate or vellum (my card will go up on Tuesday), so I happened to have some Hambly overlay scraps laying around (hint, hint!) and decided to use the scraps on these cards too. You might have heard Hambly was closing up shop, make me very sad, they always had cutting-edge products. I won a Moxie Fab prize of Hambly goodies once, now I'll really be hoarding it!

That's it for now, get out there and celebrate fathers, or any special men in your life who could be fathers!  Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
