Playing Catch-Up on some DT assigments

Wow- I have had a crazy few days with Father's Day, Soccerpalooza, Soccer Tournaments and my husband winning Coach of the Year and today is his birthday. Have not had a single moment to blog my craft endeavors, so if it's alright with you, I'm going to mash them all up into one long blog post!

First up, it's time for another challenge at 2 Sisters, this time around it's creating cards for the guys in your life. The DT was able to use images from Robin's Fetish and here's what I created:


Cute little pie chef, huh? In addition to creating my "What's Cookin" card for 2 Sisters FOR A GUY challenge, its also following the SKETCH at Eat Sleep Stamp, I used the INTINERARY at Desert Island Craft Challenge (distress, something found -bingo card- & 3 different papers), and I'm also entering it in the MEN challenge at If the Shoe Fits.

Ok, design team project #2 is for the fabulous Lasting Memories. This week the assigment is to make a layout based on this photo:

and here's my take:

I went with the blues, greens and orange color scheme and added a jumbo DIECUT to go with that scalloped white border (for the challenge at Use It Tuesday). The adorable vintage playing card with the NUMBER 2 is for Workout #8 at Scrap FIT. I created the cute little "Lemon" title in word with 3 DIFFERENT FONTS for The Paper Variety and I followed the S.T.A.R. challenge at Papercraft Star by using Smootch Spray (*S), Tape (*T), Antique playing card (*A) and Ribbon (*R).

And last up is assignment #3, my design team project for Scrap It With a Song. This week's song is "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga, and I must admit, this one stumped me for a bit. The lyrics are a kinda racy, and didn't seem appropriate for ANY photos I had...but then I remembered a crazy pic of my DH and DD. They're both making goofy faces and while DH is holding a hand of gift cards, (lucky guy) NOT playing cards, I think it still works:

For this fun layout I incorporated STARS for the challenge at Do You Stack Up in the pattern paper as well as the yellow foam star sheet. This is actually a leftover from one of the kiddo's craft projects, after they popped out all the stars, this was left and I thought it was just too cute to throw away! I added a strip of red gingham paper punched using my scallop BORDER PUNCH for Stampin Bs.

Yikes- think that's it for today on playing catch-up!!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend with the favorite dads in your life!! =) T
