Father's Day cards...

I had a friend (one of my BEST customers!!) call me yesterday and ask me to do 2 Father's Day cards for her and a birthday card. On one of the Father's Day cards she was very specific...Texas A & M!! She got tickets for her husband for the upcoming season and wanted to use the card to tell him about the tickets! How exciting for him!! So here is what I came up with! I used to have some A & M paper but guess I have used it all....SO, I went "Googling" and found this pic of the helmet, and fixed it up to how I liked it and made my own paper! =P I cut out the words w/my Cricut and embossed the top layer to look like a football! I am VERY pleased with how it turned out!
 I made a pocket on the inside to put the tickets in, and to have room to write a message.
 Since she doesn't have the actual tickets yet...I made my own to go in there! How cute is this!! I ♥ it!!
And here is the other Fathers Day card...Made almost completely w/my Cricut and Gypsy! (My new BFF!!)
 And the inside:
Then, onto the Bday card, I always say when I make a card I should just make 2, since 1 piece of cardstock gives you 2 cards and I usually have scraps from all the other cuts! So, I did just that! Actually I made 4 cards and used different sentiments on each so I can get my stockpile of cards back up! The first 2 pics are the original cards and the last pic uses all the scraps! So out of and 8x8 piece of patterned paper I made 4 cards!

Well, that's it for now...This weekend is Father's Day weekend! Still not sure exactly what we are doing on Sunday...I would love to drive up to Austin and see my Dad, but not sure that is going to happen! We shall see....

Until next time....
