Happy Fathers Day - Always fun challenge

Monday March 11, 2019
Today we have a new challenge for you at
Our theme is SHADES OF GREEN

Well I dug out one of my favorites from Stampin Up and used the alligator out of the set.. or is it a crocodile??. I used Stampin up ink and two colors and just kinda rocked and rolled to give color to the alligator.. I was going through some OLD OLD wood mounted stamps and found this cattail grass stamp so I just used the same technique and different SU and Close to my heart inks and stamped them to fill in some of the bare spots. I didn't want to over do so I said "PUT IT AWAY"  which I did.. I then used a Simon says sentiment .. Father's day is just around the corner.. so I am ready.  I added this to a piece of scrap plaid. I also used My favorite things banner dies...

I absolutely love what you created here with your - not sure either - crocodile or alligator SU stamp but it looks like you had so much fun making this card! A great male card! I have so much trouble coming up with ideas for the male cards but you nailed it!!! Thanks so much for sharing with us at QKR Stampede!

Hi Billie! This is a great Father's Day card and be it an alligator or a crocodile he sure is handsome. Paired together with the cattail grass, it all really works together splendidly. Thanks so much for joining my 'Green Goodness' blog challenge and Good Luck :)
