Countryside and Comfort Cafe for Monkey Challenge #112


This has been such a fun week! But first, let's talk about A La Card Monkey Challenge #112: Father's Day + Sketch. Focus on Dad - yours or your kids'. Old trucks always remind me of my dad. He's always had several vehicles around, and even mashed them for scrap metal at one point in his life. I used the Countryside stamp set, along with a sentiment from Best Dad Ever. The designer paper is from the Comfort Cafe pack, and that big button is Natural Wood! The two tones are so pretty in real life. Unfortunately, the words are cattywampus. Here's the sketch I followed:


 
Now about this week - I feel like it's been my birthday all week long. I've been treated to lunch a couple of times, plus dates for future lunches, a box of Stampin' Up! NEW stuff, balloons, cakes, scratch tickets, a vintage suitcase (beautiful - I'll take a photo of it tomorrow when I'm at the studio), a gorgeous clothesline purse, unexpected visits, and more. It's great! I'll share some of the hand-stamped cards later. I've heard from so many friends and family, it's been really wonderful. So thank you! I'm feeling the love!!!
