OMGoodness, I love this new set from Stampin’ Up!, it’s called Best Birds πŸ™‚Β  You can also get a die set to go with it! πŸ™‚Β  I have to say, I love dies!Β  I cut a piece of magnet sheet and tape it (with very strong tape) to the back of my stamp box and they all stay right where I need them!Β  The stamps fit right on top of the dies πŸ™‚

Everything on this card is from Stampin’ Up! unless noted! πŸ™‚Β  I used a retired embossing folder with clouds for the background.Β  The So Saffron sun was die cut.Β  The bird is Marina Mist, and the branch is Pear Pizzazz.Β  The little thank you stamp is from Wishes Your Way (retired).

I had a lot of fun making this card, until I got Memento black ink fingerprints on it! 😦   It was so bad, I had to make a second one!Β  How disappointing! 😦  This card will be going into a box for one of my SAS4Kids hospitals πŸ™‚Β  I’m a little short of Thank You cards right now, so I’m going to try and make more πŸ™‚

This set is awesome!Β  It comes with two bird stamps and 5 bird dies!Β  I colored it with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Tempting Turquoise.Β  I used a sponge dauber to add the color:)

I wish I could show you a Foxy card right now, but I have some great Father’s Day cards to share from my card makers!

First up is Diane Herniman from Canada πŸ™‚Β  Diane sends her cards all the way down here to me!Β  I feel so special, I have imported cards! lolΒ  Really, Diane’s cards are all different and one of a kind! πŸ™‚

 

Even though Diane did send multiples of some of these cards, they are all different by using different colors, and papers!Β  Thank you Diane, the kids will love sharing these cards with their dads! πŸ™‚

I have a number of card makers who I consider to be on my “team”.Β  They send me cards regularly for my three hospitals πŸ™‚Β  Diane is one and next we have Vicki Luebke of IN πŸ™‚Β  She is a regular sender! πŸ™‚

Most of you probably know I’m a big fan of using the same image, papers, layouts and mixing them up a little πŸ™‚Β  This works really well for me because I have 3 largish hospitals.Β  Even though all of these cards are Father’s Day, I can spread them around and no one hospital will get too many of the same card ! πŸ™‚

Thank you, Vicki for all of your great cards! πŸ™‚Β  These are great cards for younger and older kids, and for girls or boys to send! πŸ™‚

Next up is Judy Martin of PA πŸ™‚Β  Judy doesn’t sendΒ  a lot of cards in a year, but her cards are always great! πŸ™‚

 

I love the two last cards on the right!Β  Judy told me they are made with dies!Β  Wow, you can make almost anything with a die now!Β  Thank you Judy, all of these cards are great and will make dads smile as well as kids! πŸ™‚

I get so many different cards, it’s really amazing! πŸ™‚Β  Everyone seems to have their favorite style and I know it gives our kids a lot to choose from! πŸ™‚Β  Thank you all for your wonderful creations! πŸ™‚

I may be able to get back twice before Father’s Day to show you more cards, if not, at least once! πŸ™‚

Thanks for coming by today, I really appreciate your interest in the cards posted! πŸ™‚Β  We have a brand new theme up on our Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge blog today, be sure to go check it out! πŸ™‚Β  It’s anything goes!
