Good morning fellow cricky friends,
Welcome to another Simply Sunday at Getting Cricky. I just love Sundays...first it's my only scheduled day off of work and second I get to post, post, post. Ha. Seriously...I love Sundays...sleep in, go to church, eat lunch, play in my craft room, aaaahhh, Sundays are the best...
So...Miss Kristal had me going on this week's challenge...She told us "Retro Daddy"....huh? After much deliberation I finally emailed her and told her I had no idea what that meant or what to do. She emailed me back and told me I could make anything with a "retro" theme or a Father's Day card...aaaah. So here is my card:
Kristal had mentioned the Wrap It Up cart a while back and when Michaels had a cricut cart sale about a month ago I splurged on it and I LOVE IT. It really has some very cool cuts on it and it had an old time car. I love old time cars...and so does my dad, so this will be his Father's day card this year. I hope you like it:
I simply printed "Happy Father's Day" on my computer on white card stock. Then I distressed it with black, blue, red, and yellow ink. I sprayed some pinkish "glimmer mist" and "rubbed" it in. I attached some twine to the label and adhered it to my background paper. I have no idea where the background paper is from because it was in my stash, but it matched the cut perfectly. I sprayed it with the the pinkish "glimmer mist" and then crumpled it up. The cut file and the label are pop dotted on the background paper. Oh and I am sure you all know this, but when you crumple paper it actually shrinks a little...ha.
Let's see what you have now...remember this challenge is open until the 28th of May so you have plenty of time to get those creative juices flowing and there is no limit on how many items you can submit. Hurry over Getting Cricky and link, link, link. Thanks for stopping by this challenge Sunday and I hope to see you again soon. Remember also, I love comments and if you are a new follower, I will surely follow you back. Just let me know in the comments section and I will be over to check out your blog as soon as possible.
