Being Happy

Today I'm joining in on the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  Geni is our guest hostess today and she chose a wallpaper web site for our inspiration - Total Wall Covering.
I was inspired by this border paper - Cottage Garden Border 
 I die cut the watering can out of matboard and embossed it using Tree Branch Ink and Watering Can embossing powder. The flowers are die cut using PTI Button Dies. I tied twine through the button holes to give a little texture.
I made the background using Zig watercolor brush pens - drawing over the area with the brush pens - then going over it with a waterbrush. I stenciled the leaves and grass and added the sentiment after the background was dry.
I'll be sending this card to my sister who is going through some difficult times right now.

I'm linking my card to the following challenges:

Kind Father

I pulled out a lot of Tim Holtz/Idea-ology product  today for my creation.  I, sadly, lost my dad in 1981 when he was just 66 so I usually don't make Father's Day cards as I have no one to send them to -  but I found several challenges I wanted to participate in with the dad/masculine theme -  so here it is -  a Father's Day card!
The clock paper is from Idea-ology Paper Stash Collage.  The vintage 'dad' is a sticker from Salvage Stickers/French Industrial.  I attached Game Spinners to one of the clock faces with a brad. I added a Big Chat sticker to the 'father' Flash Card and then drew a rough line around it using a black Stabilo pencil that I smudged with my finger.  I did the same thing around the whole card panel.
I added two Chit Chat Stickers to the bottom right corner - and again drew around them with my Stabilo pencil and smudged it with my finger.

I'm linking my card to the following challenges:
Anything but Cute -  Make it Masculine
Friday Mashup - Dad or color challenge
Try it on Tuesday - Watches/Clocks
Happy Sunday everyone!   I'll be back tonight as I'm joining the Waltzingmouse Pajama Party that starts at 6:50 pm EST.
