Father's Day + INKredible Color Challenge 6/15

Happy Father's Day He Whose Name Shall Not Be Published (I think I'm going to put that in my list of abbreviations - HWNSNBP). We had a lovely evening last night with Rachel, Chris & Sunshine at the Chimney Rock Inn. It was so good to be together to laugh and share family stories - mostly about when the kids were younger. It couldn't have come at a better time. Today we will be shopping for an air-conditioner - okay, for those of you who know me I've caved - but...... I still don't want something in the window blowing on my head all night so we'll be looking for one of the free-standing ones.

I intended to work on the color challenge for the week when we got home and since I didn't already have a Father's Day card done, decided to combine the two. The little picture is showing how I punched 1/4" squares of Old Olive, ran my OO marker around the edges and after I adhered them to the card, coated them with Crystal Effects to look like brads. I colored white grosgrain with my Summer Sun marker to get it to match.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Canvas, All Holidays
Paper: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Summer Sun
Ink: Old Olive Ink and Marker, Summer Sun Marker
Accessories: White 1/4" grosgrain, Hodgepodge Brads, 1/4" square punch


  1. Great card! Love the faux brads - nice touch!
