So one of the girls at work needed 3 Father’s Day Cards. This dad she said like cows and was a farmer so I said I can do that! When trying to figure how to make it Father’s Day card my husband came up with the inside sentiment “Milk it for all it’s worth!” I loved the saying and so did the lady at work.
I think I might make this into a birthday card by tying balloons to it’s tail!
1) June Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – I used Freshly Made Sketches #1. I love this sketch and have used it several times over the years.
Digital Image: Cow are You by Deedee’s Digis (no longer in business)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Raven, lava)
Patterned Paper: cow paper found on the internet. The sentiment is on a piece of the cow paper that comes with the digital stamp.
Inks: pre-colored digital image printed on a Canon Inkjet Printer
I showed her the paper from Photo Play – This Guy Line – Keep It Handsome and she said this image was perfect. I used this card by Jody Marrow as my inspiration for the design.

And her other dad likes to grill. I made a card for him about three years ago but this is a completely different image and feel to the card. I found Team Dad by Echo Park at my local scrapbooking store and thought it would be perfect for several cards. I ended up messing up one of the cards so I cut the grill out of it so I could pop dot it on top of the original image.

Sorry not the greatest photo as I took it with my phone…totally forgot to get one with my real camera!
So one of the guys at work bought some of my cards and sent it to his parents. Well his mom now has placed orders that last through out the year. She didn’t order a Father’s Day card (long story) so her son decided to order one for her. So I made it and sent it to her as a surprise. She loved that her son and I did that for her. I used scraps from my scrap drawers.

So I saw a photo that had balloons in the forefront of the photo and the beach in the background. The nurse liked the photo and wanted something similar for one of her employees birthdays and this is how my version was born. I used the beach background and the wood post digital stamps from Diane’s Daydreams Designs (no longer in business) and made this scene. I punched balloons from my Martha Stewart Balloon punch and tied them on with black string. I printed the background scene a couple times so I could pop up the sand and clouds to give it dimension.

A lady at work requested a Happy 13th Wedding Anniversary for her daughter and son-in-law. She said one of their weddings colors was Sage. I used the pagemaps sketch that was Sketch #1 in the June Card Sketch Challenge. Instead of the 6 flowers I did 2 hearts in that space. I used lace because that was the traditional gift for the 13th anniversary.

I didn’t get to play in time for the NSD Sketch Challenge but I was inspired by sketch #4 (original was from zrobysama.com.ua). I found these papers in my scrap drawers and thought the circle images would work in place of the flowers. I think it turned out pretty good!

A lady needed a birthday card for someone in their early 20’s so I made a couple up and also showed her ones I had on hand so she could pick. She didn’t pick these but that’s okay because I now have birthday cards on hand!! I was also inspired by the wood stars we found at an estate sale (see attached photo). They were 1/2 off the price they were marked so I got them for .50 cents!! I also got a bag of hearts!! Awesome find!! I had a few pieces of this Around the Block paper and thought it worked perfect with the stars and the sketch at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch #272.
