OWH-midweek throwdown-Fathers Day

I managed to get some Fathers Day cards made. The stamp used on the cards with the tags is an old DOTS stamp. I picked it up for $.90 at Goodwill quite some time ago. This is the first time I have used it. I used the Brilliance Tiramisu ink pad. I had only 4 tags so I made 3 cards with the blue argyle background and 1 with the red. I made a trip to the store just to check the fishing department for a fly or lure I could put on the mesh. I came home with what looked like a little minnow made out of rubbery stuff. I tried several different adhesives but they wouldn't stick to the card. It would have looked so cute too. The card with the wood background I used a Creative Keepsake font that I have had for years and I do mean years. It goes back to my scrapbooking days. The CD says 1999, 2000. I colored in the font with Copics. I had seen the screw brads at Michaels so I made a special trip to get them. I had spent $50 at 2 different craft stores before I ever got home.

great cards, like the way you did the sentiment on the first card and the wood background is great with the fun font you used!
