Cricut Cardz Challenge #81

This week's challenge at cricutcardzchallenge.blogspot.com is to make a card with a picnic or cookout theme using any colors and cartridges that you like.  What do you always see at cookouts/picnics? WATERMELON! The red, juicier and sweeter the better! YUMMY!! God's candy! I used Simply Charmed cartridge and cut the watermelon found on page 46 at 2 inches.  I used Recollections cardstock, Sizzix Little Sizzles Rainbow pattern paper (an oldie but goodie), white gel pen, Glossy Accents, Cotton Candy Stickles, Walmart ribbon and My Pink Stamper's Punnylicious stamps.  I used the Sweet Chick! image but masked off the Chick! and just used Sweet.
I used a couple of different colors on each card. Thanks for visiting me!! :)

Other Father's Day cards

Hello! Yes, sorry, I know.  Father's Day has come and gone, but I wanted to post a couple of more cards that I made for that special man in my life. 
I used Country Life for this card.  I cut the image found on page 33 at 5 inches. My husband gardens and does a a lot of yard work since we have over three acres of land, but he does not necessarily like it all that much. That is why I made the grumpy face on the farmer.  He got a big kick out of it! I used Recollections cardstock, K & Company Greenhouse pattern paper, brads and Peachy Keen stamps.
This other card was for my daughter to give to my dad (her Pop-Pop).  He LOVES to fish, and they are the best of buddies.  He is like a dad to her.  She is almost 19, and they are extremely close and always have been.  I used Life's A Beach and cut the fish on page 50.  I used Recollections card stock, DCWV Latte cardstock (I love this stack - I am getting lots of good use out of it!), AC card stock, Fiskars punch, googly eyes and Aqua Stickles. 
Thanks so much for visiting me!! :)
