A Grand Old Dad

Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge hostess and DT member Lisa presents the verse for this week: 2 Timothy 1-6 and the challenge: make a project or card in a masculine style for Father's Day or other acknowledgement. Father's Day is just around the corner and Magical Crafts, Cupcake Craft Challenge, Cards for Men and C.R.A.F.T. also have father/masculine challenges. I encourage you to visit these links for great inspiration and a wonderful display of creativity. The image I used for this card is another of ever so many that have never been inked. But, it is not an every day kind of stamp so I was delighted to ink it here for the very first time to honor a "Grand Old Dad." Features cuttlebug embossing folder with gold metallic rub on, stamped background paper, blue metallic tape, sizzix die cuts, and metal charms from stash. Stamps: Judi-Kins and PSX. My DH is a "Grand Old Dad" and in fact, he is an "Old Grand-Dad" too- so yet another card for him. Thanks for visiting.

Fabulous image and lovely, strong masculine colours. Well-designed and made, unmistakeably male card.
Also made me think of Christ and St.Christopher...?
Thank you so much for coming over to play at C.R.A.F.T this week!
