Father's Day Cards

I bought a media card reader that plugs into my USB port, which means I'm back in business with blogging. Yay! It may take me several entries to get caught up on posting the cards I've been making, so bear with me.

The first two cards seem appropriate to post now given that it's officially Father's Day. I made these for my BFF in Georgia to use.

I received this cabin in an image swap (so I'm not sure who the stamp manufacturer is), and decided to add color with pencils and gamsol. I have some cardstock that another friend ran through her cuttlebug for me, and I took a woodsy-feeling piece and layered it under the cabin on a card base of Glorious Green. I added some brown eyelets (remember those? ... seems very few people use them anymore, at least in my circle of influence) and called it done. Inside is another brown panel and a Happy Father's Day sentiment.

The second card features the SU! set Branch Out on the front and All Holidays (markered and "huffed") on the inside. Colors are Certainly Celery, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip. The patterned paper is SU! DSP, but I don't remember offhand the name of it. I happen to like the recipient of this card, so he ranks a Chocolate Chip corduroy button for a bit of interest on the front panel.

Only fifteen more cards to post until I'm caught up! I think it's safe to say I'll be posting every day this week -- well, unless I have a burst of ambition when I wake up tomorrow and decide to post them all right away! We'll see...
