Another boys card !! {yawn}

Thank goodness that fathers day only comes once a year - I hate making mens cards !
I have to admit that I was sooooooooooo tempted to go out and buy some fathers day cards {gasp!} but I was saved by the sketch over at card patterns this week which now has pride of place in my "fav sketches" folder.

What a super duper versatile sketch - I love it - many thanks to the card patterns girls for being a fab source of inspiration {again} this week.

My simple card uses DP from the DCWV stack Nana's kids and I used coredinations card to cover the chipboard star and scuffed it up a little with a nail file !
The letters {super sparkly !} are thickers from American crafts - hey even men like a little sparkle and if not it's tough !!

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

Card patterns - Sketch
The Sisterhood of crafters - Celebrating dad
Little red wagon - For Dad
For fun challenges - Summer fun {summery brights colours}
Bows n berries - Masculine
Cupcake craft challenges - Boy, oh boy
Partytime Tuesday - Fathers day

Thanks for visiting me today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
