CAS-ual Fridays CFC7 meets Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to everyone!  I'm a little late in posting this but work has kept me busy today!  I love being a nurse but I do NOT like call at all!  Poo!  This is my first time playing along with CAS-ual Fridays!  Guess what?  Both of my cards for Father's Day uses the challenge so check back tomorrow for my other card!



Today's card I'm sharing is for my dad.  He is a woodworker, cabinetmaker, all around handyman.  There isn't anything he can't fix or make.  I did have the opportunity to share a part of his day with him today in between my work calls.  Happy Father's Day Dad!



I thought it was appropriate to use my woodgrain IP to add some texture to his card with the color blocking challenge.  Look here.......I even used some of my coveted wood PTI buttons!  Boy I hoard these things!!!  I'm keeping this quick and short!  Come back tomorrow for my FIL card!

{hey dad}
All supplies PTI unless stated.
Stamps:  Boob Tubes (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  Kraft, Dark Chocolate, SS White
Ink:  Dark Chocolate

I absolutely adore the woodgrain plate, and it is extra fabulous on kraft! Love your simple approach to the color blocks and the wrapped twine. I missed out on the wood buttons! I'd hoard them too, if I had them!
