Summer Blog Hop!

Welcome to Our Kreative Karma Blog Hop!
We are celebrating Summer, Graduations, Vacations, Reunions, Out of School fun!! How do you celebrate? We hope our projects will give you some inspiration! And we're offering some prizes along the way!!
I decided to show you a few of my Father's Day cards. The first is the card to my husband from me, and the second is the one from our kids to my husband. I hope you enjoy!
David is what you would call a guy's guy. If you think of the kinds of activities associated with men, he would enjoy them. One of his favorites though is fishing. Shocker, right? The Camping Critters cartridge for my Cricut is one of my favorites. I decided to put it into action for his card. :)

Project number 2: I asked my son what he wanted on his dads Father's Day card. His answer, Buzz Lightyear. YIKES! I hate doing the Disney/Pixar characters. So many small (as in TEENY TINY) pieces. Well, together, we put together this card. :)

  9. Just love your cards, love the deer fishing and the trees!! lol


  10. Dorothy the Deer is so adorable!! I love the Buzz lightyear card too!

  11. Dorothy~ Your fishing card is fantastic!! I have that cart and haven't used it yet. LOL I bought it to actually make a camping card for my dad and never got to it. I think I will be making your card for him this fathers day. My husband on the other hand is not an outdoors guy and would LOVE your Buzz Lightyear card!! I totally understand what you are saying about the TINY cuts. I have made MANY of the Disney Princesses and it kills me to put their eyes and lips together. Thank you for giving me ideas for mens cards. They are the hardest cards for me to make.


  12. Wow...fabulous creations! I love Campin Critters and that little moose is one of my favs. You really rocked the Toy Story cart too. I would have never thought of using Buzz for a Father's Day card but it is fantastic!
