The Tool Man and Super Stars

My husband's hobby is woodworking which is always requiring some kind of new tool. Or so he says!! The masculine, anything goes challenge at The Kraft Journal and Mr Handy Man at Tuesday Throwdown are perfect for making DH a birthday card.
The DP is from a DCWV Christmas pack but it reminds me of a flannel shirt. The tools are dies from Marianne Designs Creatables.I used the SU tag topper punch on the tags, placed an eyelet through the hole and tied it up with hemp cord from Hemptique (available at Hoppy Lobby) and red Bamboo Cord from Darice. The sentiment is SU stamped in Cherry Cobbler with more sponged around the edges.
I did a greeting on the computer for the inside.
The layout is from the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches
And my second card with this sketch for my granddaughters who finished 2nd and 5th grades with high honors.


  1. Both these cards are super. Hope your husband enjoyed his card. Best wishes to him on his birthday.

  2. Perfect example of a masculine card, complete with tools and all! Nice work.

  3. What a fabulous Father's Day card, Donna. I love the elements you've included, and I can't thank you enough for sharing your art in our challenge this week. I hope you will join us again soon.
