Blogger's Challenge #104: Manly Cards!

I'm back...for at least this week and am hoping for next week! I'm sharing the card that I made for Father's Day. It uses LOTS of Last Chance items. You only have until June 30th to order these stamps so go to my Stampin' Up! website and order righ away...and a few other things while you are at it! (www.lisabohler.stampinup.net)

On to the card:


My first inspiration was to use an alphabet to spell out DAD (Thanks Robin Merriman for her card last week which also used this idea...an inspiration!) After I figured out my main image (the sign from It's a Sign stamp set), the card came together quite quickly. I used the My ABCs wheel to create a road. Both the It's a Sign set and the My ABCs wheel are on the Last Chance list. The alphabet I worked with (Contempo Alphabet)is not on the list! Whew! A little bit of sponging and using my Color Spritzer Tool and my card was finished and sent off to our fathers! (I know, there is supposed be only one #1 but both of our dads are pretty terrific...a great tie!)

Thanks for looking and be sure to see what the other challenge members are doing with this manly challenge!
