Hello Friends!!
Welcome to week 13 "Father's Day"
at 

I have created one of 4 Father's Day cards that I need to make.  I thought I would start out on my Brother's card.
He is an Awesome Father!!
I used one of this month's Ephemera sets from Gecko Galz.
"Man O Man"  I also used the "flying Pig" digital stamp.  
I used embellishments from Pro 31 Designs to dress my card up, masculine style :0).  Black Bling Mesh, Brown Crystal wheat sprays, black chandelier drops and bronze pearls.  Of course I had to add just 3 Champagne flatback pearls, since they are my fave!!


It says "You are the King of the World," which is not something I would normally say to my brother...LOL.  Unless I said, well..."When pigs fly"..LOL.  So I have the pigs flying on his card, so he knows I mean it!
 I also used a Black crystal flower and Rosette in this masculine cluster.  I thin the seam binding adds a great touch!  
Here is a  look at the inside.  I have a place on the left for my sentiment (not sure what I am writing yet) and left the right side open for some matted photos of my nephews.
I was super lucky the other day!!  I thought I would stop by my BFF's Scrapbook store for a visit and  pick up some "Dude" paper.  She was actually on her way out!!  She was super sweet and let me get the few things I needed...she is the bestest!  Not only did I get this lovely the Graphic paper, but she gave me to old books that I can alter!!  Wooo Hooo!!
Thank you Ginny!!
If you live in Michigan, you will want to visit her store for sure! It is located in beautiful downtown Dexter!!

Here is a close up of the bling trim, rosette, crystal brown wheat spray and May arts leaf trim!
So...why don't you get started on your father's day card (if you haven't already) and come and join the challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow!
Just make sure that your creation has a Vintage, Primitive or Shabby style to be eligible for prizes and honors!
