Some Cards

I finally got around to making a Father's Day card, this morning! Talk about waiting till the last minute! I used these fishing stickers/embellies I bought 2-3 years ago. The fishing pole it came with was really tacky and ugly, so I chose not to use it. I stamped and embossed the title then cut it out. It is very hard coming up with stuff for a manly card. Of course, my dad just glances at it, and sets it aside-thank goodness my mom appreciates the work involved! lol
I also made the thank you card for the gal who sent me the Studio G stamps. All the stamping was done with stamps she sent me. I used glossy accents for the punched flowers, but then I tried to dry them with my heat gun...it didn't work as well as I had wanted. I know it seems kinda empty, but I wanted to preserve the look of the patterned paper. I hope she likes it.

Love the cards. I tend to give my cards to women more often than men because they just don't seem to get how cool handmade cards are!
