Blogger's Challenge Sunday!

Here it is Sunday, and I am just posting my card for this week's Blogger's Challenge. So sorry for the delay. As I said in my last post, I feel just like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland lately!!! Our challenge for this week is to create a Father's Day card. I started off with Taylored Expressions Choice Butter Cream Card Stock. Then I added a layer from the Thrift Shop collection by October Afternoon. The red patterned paper is from the Early Bird collection by Cosmo Cricket. I've been having a love affair with the little girls from the Pure Innocence collection from My Favorite Things, but I was lucky enough to pick up this sweet little guy and his tree swing when I went for a visit to Bella Art (a wonderful rubber stamp and paper craft store in Cranston, RI.) He's stamped on Butter Cream Card Stock and colored up with Copic Markers (B0000, BG18, BG72, E000, E00, E01, E29, E40, E42, E44, E57, R27, R29, YG63, and YG67.) I layered him onto a piece of Stampin' Up's Not Quite Navy. The sentiment is from the retired SU set, When I Grow Up, and it's stamped and layered with Not Quite Navy too. I used my Nesties for the ovals. A very simple card, but I really like how it all came together. I'm off to see what the other Ladies in the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with for Father's Day. Just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right side bar to see their creations. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit tonight...Toodles! :D
