Happy Father's Day

Good Morning all. Hope it stays fine today as we have visitors arriving! I spent most of yesterday sorting out the house after having carpets laid in the small bedroom and the staircase. Hopefully another bedroom will be carpeted later this week or early next then we only have one room to decorate and my craft room ceiling to repair! Another two Father's Day cards to share today.

Backing paper from Wild Rose Studio, punch from Martha Stewart, dies from Spellbinders. Stamp was a magazine freebie. Finished with a button, baker's twine and gems from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Cards for Men - sports plus sentiment
Creative Belli - sentiment only
Cute Card Thursday - use a punch
DYSU - masculine
Stamp Artic - black and white plus one
