SSCC # 43 and a Father's Day card!!



Good Morning!!  It's a great day here in Washington, it's going to be a nice, sunny day.  Today is the start of another challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ.  I do hope you can come over and join in the fun.  Our hostess for this week is the super talented Lisa Hjulberg.  Here is the verse she chose...

2 Timothy 1-6 "You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs--he wants to please his commanding officer. Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops."

The challenge is to make a Father's Day card/project... or just a masculine card

Great challenge with Father's Day being just one week away.  So get out those "GUY" stamps or masculine ones and get busy.  I've already got my FIL's card made, now I just need one for my Dad and my DH. 

Our sponsor this week is none other than Simon Says Stamp.  They have been sponsoring us monthly and we so appreciate it.  Thank you!!  If you haven't been to the store, you must go and take a look around.  They have over 100,000 items in stock to meet your needs. 

For my card, I used an image from Karen's Doodles.  She has several 'guy'  images available and this is just one of them.  It's called "It's your day".  I used my nesties to offset the image.  I used my copics to color it and then added some buttons and ribbon to seperate the 2 different dp's.  This card is for my FIL, and I know he'll enjoy it.   Now go take a look at what the other DT have created over at SSCC.   Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week ahead=)
