Seeing Stars-Ready Set Stamp Verve Challenge



I have a couple of Father's Day cards to share, the first is using Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge, it is a sketch this week, ssnotime144 and for the Color Cue color challenge.  I had forgotten where I found the Color Cue challenge, but I found it today...yeah!  I saved it in my side bar with all the other daily challenges.  I used the Verve stamp Seeing Stars, Julee has posted the new Ready Set Stamp Challenge using this set Seeing Stars, you could win a $30 gift certificate from the Verve store...wow!  That is a challenge worth taking, don't ya think?

Stamps:  Seeing Stars and Dad's Day(Verve)
Paper:  Bazzil, Hawaiian Shores(PTI), Old Olive, Tangerine Tango(SU), and Bella Blvd Designer Paper
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango(SU), and Hawaiian Shores(PTI)
Accessories:  Ribbon, Janome, Silver Star Brad, SU Stars Die, and 3D Foam Squares



My second card is for the Curtain Call Color Challenge Act34 and for Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge, EBTKS17;  it is a sketch.  This sketch was perfect for the simple Father's Day card I needed for my Father in law.  It had been a long time since I played along with the kitchen sink gals, if you have time check out their fun challenges!   I adore these colors together, I kept it simple but added textured by embossing and distressing.  The sentiment is from the Verve set Dad's Day.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned, dh and are going to take our first motorcycle ride of the year.  Since he has had his surgery he has not felt like riding, we will have a nice relaxing day on the bike, stopping for lunch and shopping if the mood hits....hehehe.  Enjoy your weekend!
