Sailing For Father's Day

It looks like it will be a summer like weekend here....finally!!  I am going to do some work in my garden and spend some time outside with the kids.  They just love being outside.....my littlest one has learned how to open doors and unless we lock them behind us, she will escape outside.  I don't blame her....it is beautiful outside and I would be trying to escape to the warm sunshine myself if I didn't have inside chores to take card of first.

Here is the card that I created from sketch 169 at CPS.  I also made a Father's Day card with embossing for the Cuttlebug Spot challenge this week.

I added a little texture to the green part of the sailboat with the Distressed Stripes embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.  I also tore the Core'dinations cardstock in small strips to make a wave effect in the water.  I am totally loving the Core'dinations cardstock right now....so many fun things you can do with it.
        Cardstock: Stampin' Up, Core'dinations, Bazzill
        Stamp, Ink, corner punch: Stampin' Up!
        Brads: Making Memories
        Die-cuts: Cricut Expression with Life Is A Beach and Doodlecharms carts
        Embossing: Cuttlebug with Distressed Stripes (boat) and
            Spots and Dots (sun) embossing folders
        Other: jute, embroidery floss

I hope your day is full of sunshine and laughter!!

Hugs,
