Happy Father's Day!

Hi blog friends!

I'm sure not too many dads will be reading my blog today, but if there are any, happy dad's day to you! 

Over at the Outlawz, it's a brand new week of challenges get on over there and check them out - AND don't forget to come back to Outlawz NEXT WEEK, because starting June 24, it's the BIG CELEBRATION of WHERE IN THE WORLD (are our) 2000 members.  We are celebrating members from 22 different countries and there are tons of prizes, great tutorials and lots of fun ways to help us celebrate our 2000 members world wide.  See the flashing flags in the upper lefthand corner of my blog?  You can click there and it will take you to more information.

The challenge for this week's Outlawz CAS card is to make a masculine card.  It being father's day and all, it's a great time to crank out some guy cards. 

My card features a Repeat Impressions stamp of a Maine lighthouse called "Portland Head Light" which is located in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  This was the first commissioned light house in the USA and it was commissioned by George Washington and completed in 1791.  It's a gorgeous place to visit.  You can find out more about it and see more images on Google, if you're interested. 

I used card stock from Gina K Designs, Pure Luxury "Moonlit Fog", "In The Navy" and White.  After embossing some of the "Moonlit Fog" CS with a CB EF I then tore it and swiped it with some TH DI "Weathered Wood" to give the appearance of rocks.  The light house image was stamped with Memento "Danube Blue" and some Copic Y15 (Cadmium Yellow) was added to the light.  The sentiment is also a Repeat Impressions Stamp. 
I hope you all have a super day! 
Stop back on Wednesday for another Designer's Choice Challenge for Repeat Impressions and The House That Stamps Built Blog.  This time it will be my turn to challenge you.  I think you're going to like it.  I look forward to seeing you soon.

I'm also entering this card in The CuttleBug Spot Challenge "Shades of Blue for Dad".

Hello blog friends!

Do the weekends fly by or is it my imagination?  (That's need to answer)  If someone has their hand on the brake though, I'd appreciate it if you'd pull that puppy, slow those weekends down and give us all more ink time....just ask'n.

It's Monday, so the good news is we're here with another Stamp of the Week with Repeat Impressions.  You may know these are featured stamps and if you would like to add a featured SOTW stamp to your collection, you can do so for 50% off the retail price.  It's a great deal and I don't know of any other stamp company does makes that offer week after week.  Check it out at The House That Stamps Built.  Grab the code and get the discount on "The Beav" #4211-K. 

If you like wildlife stamps, Repeat Impressions has some of the BEST collections I've ever seen. 

Here's a card I made using this cute stamp The Beav.

The image and water were colored with Copic Markers.  I highlighted the water with my Uni-ball Singo white pen.  I puched a small circle and sponged it with DI "Mustard Seed" to create the sun.  Easy peasy....clean and simple.
The sentiment is RI Stamp #4009-G (just scroll down the page on this link).
Check out the other Rock Stars to see their fabulous cards using this adorable stamp.
