Mechanical Men....

Coffee of the Day - Toasted Coconut (what is it about summer that just says I must drink coconut coffee? grins!)

As I mentioned the other day, I was able to get a few DT cards made over the weekend. So today I'm playing along with Party Time Tuesdays in the new challenge - All things Mechanical, Father's Day. Sponsors this week are Robin's Nest, The Stamping Boutique, and Robyn's Fetish. I hope you will play along with everyone!


I used papers from Robin's Nest, and image from The Stamping Boutique, and a fun senti from Create with TLC that just seemed to go perfectly with this ice cream truck! :) Hubby let me order a few goodies from My Favorite Things for my birthday, one of which is this coolio chevron border die. isn't it fun? lots of sparkly accents were added with shimmerz paint and my clear spica glitter pen. distress stickles were added over the top of the chocolate ice cream and look almost like sprinkles! a few buttons and some wrinkled seam tape finish off the card. perfect to give to hubby! :)

enjoy your week and see you in a few days! :)

Challenges:
Pink Elephant - masculine
Dream Valley Challenges - for that special guy (hubby!)
One Stitch at a Time - man in your life
Alphabet Challenge - ice cream
Cardmad Fairy - Father's Day/masculine
Crafty Catz - Summer Time
