Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess … Peggy McCurry.

This week Peggy has challenged us to a Man Made Challenge … Peggy asks “How many of us need more masculine cards in our stash? Have some men/boys that have a birthday coming up? A special sport event? Graduation?”


Even though Father’s Day isn’t until September down here where I live in Australia, I decided to create a Father’s Day card as I normally have to make a fair few of these so my daughters have a supply for various family members.


As you can see I created a pop up card using the Lucy Label Pop-Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. The image is one I have had since late last year waiting to be inked from Wild Rose Studio. All the sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp.


And finally, the front of my card. I used Simon Says Stamp Full Card Dad die for this and added some Elizabeth Craft Designs Black/Silver Glitter Dots to the word “Dad”.
