Bloggers Challenge --Father's Day

This week we are focusing on Father's Day with the Blogger's Challenge group!  I needed a card to my hubby from me so this is what I came up with.  Easy, masculine colors and to the point--just like my hubby likes, lol.


Stamps:  Animal Crackers, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Autumn Harvest
Paper: Crumb Cake, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: embossing folder, markers, ribbon, wide oval punch, water color pencils.

Short and sweet, I have tons to get done today.  Hope you have a great day--TGIF!
