Happy 1st Father's Day

Hello there!!

WOW I can't believe a week has gone by!!! I've been very busy with so many things, mostly spending time with family. We had a small get together this past weekend for my nephew who is turning 2 on June 8th, that was so much fun and he was so excited to see my Handy Manny cards that I showed you last week. "HOP UP" he says..LOL!!

This week I had to make my cousin a card for her hubby. They just had a baby girl in March (the one I spoke a lot about, baby GIADA) and this will be his first Father's Day. He is an electrician, this is what I created!!!

I think it's fits the person it's made for perfectly, he has a great sense of humor.

I also used the same idea for my father-in-laws card, just made the sentiment in French and used a fabulous Digi from Bugaboo Stamps.

For the above cards I used the color inspiration from Dynamic Duos DD#5  
and a sketch from Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge WMSC100.

I'm entering the following challenges:
Dynamic Duos, DD#5 Real red and Island Indigo
Cards for Men, Challenge 12, Father's Day
Love to Create, Challange 18, Father's Day

I had so much fun creating these cards, especially when I know who they are going too!!

Have a  great week everyone, hope to see you soon. And thanks again for stopping by!!

love & create ...with a smile :)
