I {heart} my dad

If you are here for the Shimmerz Birthday Blog Hop, please click HERE!!

When I saw this stamp from Hero Arts, I just HAD to have it! I think it's perfect for the kids to give to daddy this Sunday. I followed the CAS challenge from Splitcoast for sketch inspiration. :)

I was also busy this week playing with some new goodies from Stampin' Up! I wanted to do the sketch challenge over at Splitcoast and this is what I came up with.

I just love the luscious new colors!!! I used the new colors Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry with Old Olive. Now that we have markers for the In Colors, I was able to use them directly on the new stamp set, Razzle Dazzle. I also used the markers on my Polka Dot background stamp (where are you in the catalog my friend?!) for a custom background and I just looooove it!

FYI, I used my hubby's fancy dancy Canon Rebel to take this shot. I came to the conclusion that I suck at it and need a master's to figure it out. Any pointers will be GLADLY taken! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have an enjoyable weekend with the dad's in your life!

Very cute! I love the new in colors and the card you made with it. I didn't buy that set at first, because there is a stamp that I don't really care for in it, but after I've seen everyone else's cards, I just can't live without that beautiful stamp you used!
