Father's Day, Etc.

I'll Start With This One

I'm in the mood for masculine cards . I should be making graduation cards, but I'm not feeling it today.
The main image on this first card is from a coloring book site, and the pelican is from Dustin Pike. They're colored using Copics. I think it's a comical image! 

The inside says, "Relax...go fishing. Happy Father's Day!"

Card stock: SU! Bordering Blue and Real Red
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Border: Martha Stewart punch
Die cuts: Cuttlebug
Ribbon: Ribbons & Bows, Oh My!

Tee For Dad!

I've had the idea for this card for some time now, but just got around to making it yesterday. I think I got the t-shirt image from an online advertisement. The bull  is from Elizabeth O. Dulemba's coloring book site. Copics were used on both. The sentiment was computer-generated.

The inside says," And that's no bull shirt!"
I think it will give the recipient a good chuckle!

Card stock" SU! Going Gray and Always Artichoke
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Border: Martha Stewart punch
Hardware: SU! 
Ribbon: Stash

And Then, Etc....

This is one for the little guys.

This last card uses a Lili of the Valley stamp. Yes! I used an actual stamp for a change!
I really like the stamps from this English company, but do wish they were available in a digital format. Ha ha!

Sentiment stamp: Hero Arts
Card stock: SU! Certainly Celery, Brocade Blue, Ballet Blue, and More Mustard
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nesties, Paper crimper, Embossing folder
Embellishments: Basic Grey buttons, Embroidery floss
