Sentimental Sundays – Father’s Day Challenge

Hello! We have a very timely challenge for you this week. The Sentimental Sundays team is challenging you to make a card or project for a Father or special man in your life. (Don’t forget a sentiment!)


I am still trying to push myself out of my comfort zone a bit. I decided to try to use a photo on the card I was making for my husband for Father’s day. I love this picture of my hubby and daughter taken at Disney World last year. (I really hope he is not looking at this…. I know he usually doesn’t look at my blog and I’m trying to figure out how to turn off Networked Blogs so it doesn’t pop up on his Facebook page.)





I used a Whiff of Joy sketch for inspiration and then worked from there. The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs. It was not designed as a ticket sentiment but I shrank it down, printed it on kraft and cut it out with a ticket die. I love the versatility of digital sentiments.


I hope you will stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to see the creations from the rest of the design team. Our challenge this week is being sponsored by Meljen’s Designs and Raindrop Echo Designs. While you are there you can download the free sentiments from the talented Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. I hope you will join our challenge too!


Thank you for stopping by!



Supplies:


  • Stamps: Walkin’ With Dad sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs (available on Whimsy Stamps), Just the Ticket by Papertrey
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Autumn Terracotta & Twilight inks
  • Papers & CS: Papertrey kraft, & dark chocolate CS, The Paper Company kraft CS, My Mind’s Eye Fine and Dandy True Blue paper pad
