365 Cards: Cosmo Cricket for Father's Day

Hey! It's another rainy day here in NY and the boys are sitting next to me as I write. We are scheduled to go to a friends house but I wanted to get this posted before we left. They are anxious to go... so anxious they are crawling all over me and the keyboard. UGH! We were out all day yesterday so I haven't had a chance to stop by everyones blogs to see what you made yesterday, but I will be doing that today... can't wait to see!! 

So todays challenge is to make a masculine card using argyle as inspiration. Well, lucky for me Mr. Campy had some flannel print (argyle enough right?) and I made up 2 Father's Day cards for the grandpa's this year. Here they are in no particular order:

I used the Mr. Campy tree stickers and outlined them with a brown marker. Added matted 'argyle' paper and added a PTI 'Father Knows Best' stamp. Very Simple.

Next Up:
I loved the idea of folding over this paper to create a flap so you can see both sides of the paper (which is FABULOUS!). Added an eyelet and tied my twine into knots and adhered it with some tape. Again, Mr. Campy stickers and another PTI Father Knows Best stamp for the sentiment and also I added the compass stamp to the red side of the paper in red to make it subtle.

Pretty simple today and not very amazing. BUT they are both done and now it's just a matter of figuring out what to send with them. Hmmmm. I wonder. Any ideas? Send 'em my way! I am thinking food, but that is only because I am hungry right now.

Ok, the boys are dressed in their batman outfits and have donned their swords. I think its time for our playdate! They are such boys, its hard to fathom any girly-ness in my life. I feel totally out numbered by testosterone craziness. But it's fun!!

That's it for today. Have a good one!
