Father's Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Father's Day Blog Hop!  Thanks for joining us!

You should have arrived here from here:  -- Kelly ( Kbiendesigns ) If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go back to the start of the top of the hop at  -- Chris ( Get Inspired With ChatterScene ) to start so you don't miss any of the projects. There is  Blog Candy offered so you want to start at the beginning and read how to participate to win.
 Well, on my first time out of the shoot I missed the mark!  I misunderstood, or at least I think so, that the posts were to be up by June 19/11.  I thought I was gonna be all ready tomorrow and have it up early.   Well, low and behold a bunch of you lovely girls came by today!  Yikes!

Here is the  layout I made for my dh.  He had taken our daughter to an Angel's game opening night.  He said she had a wonderful time, but most of it was spent watching the peddlers sell their wares... and convincing dad she needed to buy everything they had for her to eat!  I know this will bring back great memories for him.

I used Boys will Be boys for the ball, glove and bat.  The font is from Batman.  The silhouette (how perfect is that?!) is from A Child's Year.  I added some jolees, and some glitter to the letter A.

 My journey on using all of my carts continues!

This is a quick card I made for my dh for Father's Day.  I think he can enjoy himself catching up on moving the grass, roofing...  lol!  The grass was made with Martha Stewart scissors.  The grass on the card looks as long as ours does here!  It has been raining for weeks!

I used my new Cricut Circle Cart:  Pop Up Neighborhood for the mower,  Doodlecharms for the sun, A Child's Year for the font(I almost didn't buy this cart because I thought I would never use it!  Wow, was I wrong!)  and Create a Critter for the puffs of smoke.  The sun has a "Peachy Keen" smile. 

Here is my blog candy.  Become a follower and leave a comment.  If you become a follower, say so in your comment and I will put your name in twice.  I will draw from all of the names with comments on this post.  The winner will be announced by Tuesday June 21 and the prize will be sent out by the 27th of June.  Canada Post is on strike so I will drive to the border on one of those two days if you live in the States.  If you live in Canada, sorry girls, you will have to wait for the postal system to get back in line! For all of the girls who left a post on the prior post as this one was not up, your names will also be entered.

Thanks for hopping along with us. Remember, if you leave a comment on every designers blog hop post, your name will go into the drawing for the for the blog Candy affered by ChatterScene.

  9. I can relate to your daughter at a baseball game--I do more people watching around me than watching the actual game. I can also relate to what you said about almost not buying a cart and then using it a lot. That happened to me with Graphically Speaking. I'm a new follower. Thanks for the chance to win!
