Dad's Day SFYTT

Well, I promised to share more Dad's Day stuff with you yesterday, but it didn't happen because I ended up using Jen's sketch for the card, so I couldn't share that with you until today or that would've been cheating! I did plan to share the {DAD} tote with you on Friday but didn't get one minute to post yesterday...busy with the kiddos.

When I first looked at the SFYTT for today, I pictured a more mod looking card, but that's not the look that I ended up with. Totally ok because I really like how this one turned out! I used SU!'s new In Color, Soft Suede, and paired it with paper from the Mr. Campy collection from Cosmo Cricket. All stamps are from Verve--World's Best & Protector, great sets! In addition to the masculine yet fun look of the papers, I think the buttons and mini clip give this one a little "manly" appeal.

Speaking of "manly", let's move on to the {DAD} tote...I know, a tote for Dad(?!), what was I thinking? I was thinking that I loved THIS awesome tote that Carole Burrage created for the release of The Cat's Pajamas' Happy Camper & Nightie, and selfishly wanted to make one, so I made it "manly", or at least tried to make it "manly"! The other manly elements are the (serious) fishy paper from Karen Foster (green fish texture), jumbo eyelets and twine used to secure the handles and sentiment tag.

I can't wait to see what the SFYTT girls have, so let's pop on over and see:

Jen & June GD, Ashley Newell

Have a great weekend crew!

Great "manly" card for Father's Day. Nice, warm colors. The tote is perfect. What man, "in his right mind", wouldn't like? LOL {{{hugs}}}

How amazing are these, Amy?! Love their masculine appeal - you nailed it, that's for sure. And I have to say that YOU, all by yourself, are going to make me get my rear in gear and order up the new SU colors. You're making them look soooo good! Have a fantastic weekend!
