Celebrating Father's Day at Craft Your Passion!!

We are just winding down a from a 4 day weekend here as the kids had a curriculum day on Friday and today is the Queen's Birthday Public Holiday!! We've had a home day today, just watching movies and getting the house tidied up and all washing caught up on! House still looks like a bomb went off but I feel like I've achieved something! Will get the house back into some sort of order tomorrow when the boys are back at school!! What have you been up to on your weekend?
So it's time for a new challenge  at Craft Your Passion and this week our challenge is Fathers Day/Masculine. We actually don't celebrate Fathers day till September here in Australia so I never have to think about making a card for this special day at this time of year but hey now I won't have to worry in September!!
We are sponsored by Eureka Stamps and The Robin's Nest this challenge!! I used this sentiment from Eureka stamps:

I got some white card stock and inked it up with some distress inks then put it through the printer to print out the sentiment!! I then added some sparkle and glimmer to it (not that you can really tell). I then just added the stars diecut from the same paper and finished it off with some rhinestones and buttons!! Simple but perfect for my dad for fathers day!!
I hope that you can join us at Craft Your Passion this week! I look forward to stopping by your blogs!!

  3. I REALLY like what you did with distress inks on the paper. The colors are awesome and the shine/glitter is super with those images. Cool Alethea!

  4. This card is gorgeous. The Distress Inked papers create such a striking background for the awesome stamp. Love the background paper and those dangly stars. The bling adds lovely sparkle and the buttons provide a wonderful balance. Great design.
