The Craft's Meow May Previews Day 2


Hello friends, welcome to day two of May release previews at The Craft's Meow!  I hope you enjoyed all of the flowers yesterday and today we have something for the fellas!  :)  Don't forget to leave a comment back on the TCM blog for a chance to win the sets we're previewing today!
This first card is made from the Dad's and Grads set designed by Kaitlyn Ord.  This set has a couple of wonderful images and even more wonderful sentiments!  I started with a white card base that I tried to turn into a designer shirt front by using some Mister Huey and a Huey's Mask!  I know my dad wouldn't wear this shirt but I've seen crazier walking around here in the city!  :)  I'll be linking this card to the Splatter Technique Challenge at Moxie Fab World, too!  I finished the card with a sentiment and the wonderful tie image from the set.  This tie is super with the "dad" and the newsprint background already embedded in the stamp!
I can't wait to give this card to my dad!  Since I already have a Father's Day card in mind, I will probably save this for his birthday.  I adore how the sentiments from For My Dad match so well with the imagery in the set.  Wonderful set design by Michelle Bertuzzi!  The minute I saw this sentiment, I thought it would be perfect with these little telephones and a bit of woodgrain background paper.  I think he will love it!

Thanks for visiting today and I'll see you back here tomorrow with something that is sew fun, you will love it!  ;)
