FCCB Father's Day Challenge #253

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #253 - Celebrate Dad-create a card or project for Dad

This Weeks Sponsor

There will be 3 winners of $7 gift certificates!

Create a project inspired by Father's Day

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

Here is my project-

The card was made with the Digiplayground SVG File-Oak Leaf Pop Up card, out of Coredinations Chocolate mint cardstock, lime & white twine from the Twinery, and Cards TV "Happy Days" stamp set. The tag was cut out of the same cardstock with Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The Ornament box
is a really useful box! It has 3 different inserts for money, gift cards, or $1 lottery tickets! I chose the money insert-

Here is what it looks like with the cover over the box-

and what it looks like with the band around it.

I decorated the band with some left over stickers (stash) and cardstock from DCWV Pet Stack and American Crafts (Ivory). My father-in-laws little chihuahua was in the vet's office for about 4 days with pancreatic problems & pre-diabetes, so my husband and I are picking up the bill for his Father's Day Gift. That little dog means the world to Norm, so I can't think of a better gift.

Show us your Father's day creations to win one of THREE $7 gift certificates!

FCCB Blog Hop!

Welcome to the "Fantabulous Cricut Favorite Character Blog Hop"
and the introduction of our new Design team members.


We will have prizes (blog candy) on some of the blogs along the way.  You will have until June 2nd to leave a comment 12 midnight EST. We will announce the winners on each of our blogs on June 7. You will need to check back to see if you have won.

A character can be -- a number, a letter, a persons personality, etc., so I am showcasing what my interpretation of a what a character is..

You should have arrived here from Diana M.-http://leeleecarddesigns.blogspot.com. If not, and you want to start at the beginning go to  Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.com.

Here is my inspiration for you-

What do you give a die hard Oregon Duck fan who has a baby? A University of Oregon Donald Duck card, of course! All the papers are from my stash, and Donald is from the Mickey and Friends cartridge. The sentiment is from an old Fiskars stamp set I got a long time ago. The great thing about clear cling stamps is you can bend them to get the shape you need!

Now that you have seen my character go to Karla at http://creative-love-affair.blogspot.ca/ and check out her amazing creativity. There is a  list of all the designers on the blog hop below

Happy Hopping
