No. 1 Dad


Hello and welcome to my Fabulous Friday post for Sugar Creek Hollow. This week, the DT was challenged to make a Father's Day card. I used the Father's Day set from Sugar Creek Hollow. It's a great set and a great deal - you get four images for $5 at the Sugar Creek Hollow store.

The card stock used here is Really Rust and Mellow Moss. The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Outlaw pack. I was trying to remember where I got the twine and I think I picked it up at the food pantry I run. I believe it was used to fasten a crate of green beans together - LOL!! I snag anything I think can have a second life on one of my cards. It sure did come in handy to give this card an authentic western feel. I bought those star brads at a LSS when I first stared stamping. They've been hanging aroiund in my stash for at least 10 years and I've used them maybe twice before - not a great purchase, but came in handy here. I used a Spellbinders Nestability for the wanted sign and the poster was printed on my printer and distressed with Frayed Burlap distress ink. I printed the #1 Dad badge on SU gold paper and really wasn't happy with the way it looked, but couldn't really find anything better in my extensive stash so I went with it.

That about wraps up the details on this one. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope you will stop by the Sugar Creek Hollow store and pick up your Friday Freebie. Don't delay, they are only available for a week.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope to see you again real soon!

Blessings & hugs,
