Quick creations :)

Wowsers I've had a great morning ! You know one of those mornings when you feel that it's all fallen into place - just worked really well ! I woke to find that my lovely hubster had taken the kiddos to his mums for breakfast so for the 1st time this week I didn't wake to bickering and whinging instead it was quiet and peaceful. 
Although getting loads of crafting done this week - I still needed a couple of fathers day cards and with tomorrow being fathers day I thought that I'd better get on with it !

So off I set with CAS cards in mind for speed and lets be honest those men don't really appreciate it any more if you spend hours working on a card for them ! I made 2 cards in about an hour with scraps of DP that I had floating around. I done all this in peace without even the TV on and just a cup of tea for company ! I made the most ridiculous mess - not bothering to tidy between cards like I normally do (my craft table is also our dining table so it often needed at a moments notice for quick snacks and emergency bowls of cereal when my boys decide that they are starving !!!) when I had finished (feeling smug as I had even photographed my creations) my craft/dining table looked like this

Craft carnage !!

Anyway here are those quick cards.

DP scraps from this fab digi kit, star die cut from sizzix framelits, number & letters die cuts from memory box and # made withj scraps !

I would love to share this card with the following challenges:

Simply create too - Fathers day
2 sisters challenge blog - Just for dad
A gem of a challenge - Fathers day 

 And here's the other one !
DP scraps - no idea which kit they are from but they are digi papers ! Stars die cut with sizzix framelits, sentiment from jellypark, twine & button from stash :)

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

I used to have a dining table that looked like yours. Now that I have a craft room again, my desk looks like your table! Gotta have a mess to be creative, don't we? :^)

These are awesome cards, Suzy! It's funny how messy we can get making a little card. I do like the term "craft carnage"!

These cards are great! I love the CAS look of both cards. The large star really makes a super focal point. Terrific design and color combo. Thanks for joining us this week at the Dutch Dare.
