Happy Father's Day without the Blues

Sew Many Cards presents:

June 4 - 10

THEME: Father's Day Without Using the Color Blue

The Sponsor for this week's challenge is:


Prize Package -- 5 free digi stamps

Here is my Sew Many Challenges card:

I used the Sew Many Cards Kathi Dressed Dads Clothes image. It is perfect for a Father's Day card. What Dad wouldn't love receiving a card showing an image of a young girl wearing Daddy's clothes? Only a Dad who has a son and no daughters, in which case, the Sew Many Cards Owen Dressed Dads Clothes image could be used instead.

I want to thank Tracey, the owner of The Stamping Boutique, for not only generously giving a prize package for the winner of this week's challenge, but also for giving me the opportunity to create with one of her adorable images!

The Stamping Boutique Baby Boy on the Beach

This image is absolutely precious. The sweet little child is having about as much fun playing in the sand at the beach as I was having in my Hideout coloring the image and creating this card.

Speaking of fun... won't you join the fun this week and create a non-blue Father's Day card for Sew Many Challenges? It will be great fun!
