Father's Day card

Hello! I have been going through my blog feed this morning and it is especially long today!  I guess everyone has had some good crafty time recently! Maybe that was your treat for Mother's Day?  Anyhow, I have a Father's Day card to share today, trying to make sure I have them ready well ahead of time.


I masked the squirrel so he could be sitting right at home on the comfy chair.  He is relaxing for Father's Day.  I colored this with alcohol markers and cut out.  


I used an odd patterned paper for the background and then used snippets from the same pack to make a pleasing arrangement.  I had to add some brads to this card.  These ones I have from old Gina K kits remind me of the tacks sometimes used in furniture.

Supplies: Hero Arts Welcome Home and Clear Design June stamp sets, Memento black ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Versafine Sepia ink, My Mind's Eye Handsome 6x6 Paper Pad, Gina K brads

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground 281-282
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge - May
SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge - Home Sweet Home
ModSquad Challenge Blog - Let's Color

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!

Oh, Heidi, Mr. Squirrel looks quite comfy indeed, and what a great layout! I agree that the brads so remind me of what is used on some furniture, especially leather chairs. I love it, sweet friend, and your cards are always so beautifully made! Hugs! xoxo
