Father's Day Cards

Here's two cards that I made today for Father's Day. A few days ago I made this Father's Day card too. Three down, four more to go.

I used this sketch to make the first card:

Here's the card for this sketch:

The inside of card 1:

Here are the challenges it applies to:
1. 2 Red Bananas - sketch
2. Card Positioning Systems - sketch (these two blogs teamed up for the sketch this week)
3. Stamptacular Sunday - Father's Day
4. If the shoe fits - masculine
5. Pile it on - more than one challenge, two ribbons
6. Cupcake Craft Challenges - Father's Day

I used Life's a Beach to create the lighthouse. I used the DCWV pet stack for the paper. And I absolutely LOVE these argyle stamps from the studio G father's day collection.

Here is another Father's Day card I just made. It doesn't follow the sketch or apply to the challenges.

My husband's grandfather was in the Navy, so I thought the boat and anchor were appropriate.

The inside of card 2:

The boat and anchor were from Life's a Beach. Again, I used the fabulous Studio G father's day stamps and the DCWV pet stack.

Hi Lauren,

Love your Father's Day cards! I so need to start decorating the inside of my cards too...I don't know why but I just never do. Well, maybe it's because I am just not creative enough...

Anyways, PERFECT cards for this week's challenge!

Thanks for playing along with us this week at Stamptacular! Hope you'll join us again next week for some more challenge fun!

Two stunning cards Lauren, the DP's are absolutelty idea for a guy card - is often hard to find ones suitable for them.

Great lighthouse Lauren, and I do love the colors of the papers you chose, great stamp of the diamond crisscross, I can see many uses for that. And the other card with the boat and anchor is fabulous too. You've certainly been busy this week.
Thanks for joining us this week at SSC.
