Paper Bakery Sketch Challenge #5

Hello Hello Bloggers! 
I'm cutting it down to the wire on getting Father's Day cards done and getting this entry in for The Paper Bakery sketch challenge! It's done in an hour! lol

I hadn't really planned on even using this sketch this afternoon when I sat down to make my FIL'S Father's Day card, but it popped into my head when I was thinking about the design of it, and I thought it would be perfect! It's quite altered from the original sketch, but the inspiration definitely came from it :)

I used my Cameo for the die cut title and frame (can you tell I desperately needed to change my blade?!)

The second card I have here is my husband's Father's Day card. Most of the card was made using my kit from The Paper Bakery, except the Tim Holtz circley car stamp, the gears and the Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper. When I saw this card that says: "Me
                                                                   I thought it would be perfect for a card for us! Their also just so happened to be a die cut number 4 (coincidentally how many kids we're very close to having!). So I thought it would be fun to play with that! I used one of the Crate Paper photo overlays and stapled that over top of most of my cluster, but then I glued a cute little wood veneer ampersand by Studio Calico to the line and then added the number 4. So now it says  "me plus you and 4 equals family" 

I cut the teeny gears with my Cameo AFTER I changed my blade...what a difference a sharp blade makes!!
I also used my fringe shears to add to my border strips and bring in some of that orange colour from the gears :)

Well, there you have it! I'm off to go help my boys get settled into their "sleepover". All three of them are going to sleep in the same room and play and have fun :) 

I'm going to enter these cards into the following challenges:  Use It Tuesday: Masculine
The second card is going into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp: Transport

Thanks for stopping by!!
