Happy Father's Day~~Dad You Rock

Morning Bloggers!

I am very excited to say I am 1 follower away from hitting 400!! Whoo Hoo. I have a HUGE giveaway ending tomorrow and it I hit 400 I will add some more goodies to this box.
I am going to the CK Convention tomorrow and you never know what I might find :)

Another Favor to ask....There is a new blogger in town and her name is Raina. Her blog is super cute and she is having a 100 follower giveaway. Please check out her blog~ Raina's Favorite Crafty Things and become a follower. You will not be disappointed!!

I also would like to share that my Twisted Easel Birthday card won over at BBTB2.
Here is the card in case you missed my post. I am quite impressed with it if I say so myself. These twisted easels are so much fun to make and I love making them so much I did another one for Father's Day!

Here it is closed and
here it is opened.

I made this card for several Challenges.

My card is the standard A2 sized card.
I used paper from TPC Studios called Reel Me In Dad as well as a Free download from Get Funky!
I used some Tim Holtz distress ink to sponge around the layers in Frayed Burlap
The cut is from the Stamping Cartridge as well as the word cut on the top.
The stamp inside is one I picked up at my favorite local stamping store.
Also on this card is some ribbon from my stash and these cool metal letters that I hot glued on.

This is being entered into the following Challenges:
Get Funky!~ Stetch Challenge using Get Funky products
