June 10- (Saturday)
With Fathers Day occurring tomorrow, I’ve been making masculine cards for challenges all week. This latest one, for Art Impressions stamps, required that the card/item includes distressing, which is not a technique that I prefer. But, using one of AI’s front-and-back stamps (named Hollis) I gave it a try. I made up the sentiment and printed it off on the computer. Sponged the fence and the edges of the card to meet the challenge. (My hubby is often encouraging and complimentary when I share my cards… this one he LOVED!)

Once again, drew from my patterned paper stash to make cards for a few challenges. The sun with rays that I made with the papers, and the inspirational quote allowed me to enter it in two additional challenges.

My final challenge for the day was to create a card for a kid that will be sent on to a hospitalized child. It was also entered into one that focuses on travel and a third that helps celebrate a wonderful blog site’s third birthday!
