Two cards in one day! I've been busy busy creating. I've actually been making about 4 cards per day, since I'm off from work. But I don't like to post too many cards per day to my blog, since they tend to get buried.
I have a recent obsession with embossing powder, so that's what I used here.

This week at Heart Song Inspirations, our challenge is scallops and/or paper piercing. I chose to use my new MFT dies to be creative with this theme. I used scalloped clouds and scalloped background paper.

This week at Lasting Memories, our challenge is to recycle something. I thought long and hard on this one. I remembered some card fronts that I had cut out and saved from cards I received at my wedding. One looked very similar to my mother's dress. The card came with a pink background. I cut it apart and gave it a purple background. I used it on a layout of my mom doing my bustle.

I always want to do something extra special for my dad on father's day. He's such a unique person. He's a police officer. He loves cars, and can tell you the year, make, and model of anything that drives past. He loves animals of ALL kinds. Growing up, we had SO many pets! Cats, rabbits, hampsters, a ferret, hedgehogs, turtles, snakes, alligators, lizards, you name it. He also LOVES crossword puzzles.
Since I usually give him cards with reptiles on them, I decided to make him a crossword card this year. I googled crossword puzzles and counted out the squares until I found one where I could fit "Happy Father's Day" in it.

Ok, I'm a few days late with this challenge. Last was a busy week, since it was the last week of school and therefore my last week of work before summer vacation. My husband is away for his two weeks at the National Guard. I had a Stampin' Up party at my house on Saturday, so I was cleaning all week in preparation. Saturday evening after the party, I found out that my great aunt passed away from a massive stroke. Needless to say, with all of this going on, I didn't find time to create my layout.
Here's the cards we made at my Stampin' Up party. Claire was our lovely demonstrator. The party was a huge success and I received LOTS of free products (and I purchased stuff on top of that). I can't wait to play with all my new stuff!
And now onto my Lasting Memories DT project. Our challenge is to create a background using punches. I have tons of border punches, but not many shape punches. I realized that I had TONS of Christmas punches that would work well together, so this is what I came up with.

This fortnight, our challenge at Craft Us Crazy is father's day and/or masculine. I chose to make another card with Stampin' Up's The Open Sea. I'm really loving it, plus my father in law and grandfather in law were in the Navy, so it works perfectly.
