Sweet Sunday Sketch 271

Hey Friends, Last weekend we celebrated Father's Day early along with some June birthdays, we have many in our family! So I had to whip up some Father's Day cards quickly! For me, the quickest way to do that is to pick out a great sketch, a 6x6 paper pad, some matching embellies and a sentiment stamp. 

I got to work making 2 similar cards, completing each part in duplicate, just changing the paper and colors. Altho these are simple, they made quite an impact IRL. The cute Echo Park "Boy" paper and the sketch did all the work. The sentiment is from Inky Antics, the wood veneers are Studio Calico. 

Some challenges for these cards are as follows:

Thanks for visiting AND one more thing!

What is this photo below,  you ask? Last weekend at our party was the Belmont Stakes, We were really hoping American Pharoah would win the triple crown! (Yeah, he DID!)
So I made these cute jockey shirts out of card stock, one for each horse, and we had a little betting game going on! Everyone paid a dollar and randomly got assigned a jockey/horse. I gave out these little favors for my guests to cheer on the horses during the race. It was FUN!!! And my MOM won the pool!

Thanks again for coming by.....

  3. These cards are just great and the papers are so cute with the little wooden embellies! The sketch shows everything off perfectly. I got such a kick out of your idea with the jockey shirts. Hahahaha! So fun!

  4. Great cards! I love the addition of the wooden elements. It echoes the paper nicely and ties it all together. I really love the patterned paper you chose.
