Digi Day for Father's Day

Good morning!!  How about a free digital stamp today?  It's Sweet -n Sassy Digi Day on Paper Craft Planet and SNR Card Universe, and if you play along with the Masculine Challenge, you could earn FREE STAMPS!  Check out today's post in the Sweet -n Sassy Stamps Group forum on both websites for complete details and lots of inspiration from our design team and friends of Sweet -n Sassy Stamps.   It's a day filled with fun, friends, fellowship and FREEBIES, so hop on over ASAP!!
For my card today, I used the Bowling Strike image illustrated by Korin's son, Aston Sutherland.  What a great image for the guy in your life who loves to bowl!  That would be my dad!!!!  I followed the Sweet Stop Saturday Sketch from this week, and pulled the pattered paper out of my scrap bag.  I'm hitting that scrap bag hard this week, and that's the plan.  Gotta move out the old, so that I can bring in some new!  LOL!!!   For the black and white checkered strip, I just cut a piece of black card stock, and stuck some 3/4" punched squares to it in a checkered pattern.  As always, I colored with Copics, and I embellished with grosgrain ribbon that I threaded through the buttons.   

I'm tellin' ya that talent abounds in the Sutherland family, because the Early Bird Freebie for today was illustrated by Aidan Sutherland.  Pick up this Golf Tee digi free just for playing along with the challenge by midnight tonight, and uploading your card to one of the forum threads listed above.  



Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It's always my pleasure to have you.  I enjoy your comments, encouragement and support.  It's what keeps me craftin'!!  There's still time to enter to win my  blog candy giveaway (See post below).  Just leave a comment and your contact information for your chance to win.  Have a glorious day, and may it be filled with happy staming!

Love ya,
