Hi cuties! What a gorgeous Sunday morning we are having. I took an early walk with Joy and just enjoyed the birds and the early morning sun.  I saw the prettiest Blue Bird this morning. They are one of my favorites and were pretty rare for the longest time, but people started placing blue bird boxes all around and now we see them more regularly. 

I would like to apologize to all of you for not being on your blogs and leaving comments lately.  I have been trying to make up for being away next week. I am going to see my daughter, who I have not seen in a year, so I am really excited about this trip. But I realized it won’t leave me much time for the Muscle Card Challenge at Operation Write Home’s* Stars and Stamps blog.  So, I have been crafting in all of my spare time and will schedule cards to post while I am away.

But today, I have three cards for you that I made them for OWH’s Midweek Throw Down Father’s Day challenge. These are more of the cards I did with digital stamps and papers from Clear Dollar Stamps.

This first card was made using Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper and Distress Ink.  The frame is Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and outlined with gold pen.  I just could not resist using the little rolling eyes on that cute bear from Clear Dollar Stamps.  He is from the digi package called Happy Trails Camper and is pre-colored.

The card above uses the same CDS images and digital papers. The clouds are Memory Box dies. Spellbinders Labels Eighteen was used again for the frame.

This card uses two of the dies from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis rectangles.  The clouds are again Memory Box and they are stapled onto the ribbon.The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping’s Ahoy, Matey set.
