INKspired Blog Hop #39

Hello and welcome to the INKspired Blog Hop #39. I hope you've had a wonderful weekend!
If you've hopped here from Teneale's blog - you're in the right spot and thanks for hopping on.

Here is this week's sketch ... 

Because Father's Day is just around the corner, I thought I'd create a card for my amazing Dad.      My Dad loves to create things, too, however his preferred materials are metal, wood and cement! 

Here we are down at his farm in Jervis Bay making a woodfired pizza oven to go in the gazebo he built.  It was such a fun thing thing to do as a family and now we get to enjoy the bounty of our efforts every time we go there. Absolutely the best pizzas you'll ever eat!

Here's the Father's Day card I made for my Dad. It's a quick and easy card to make. The colour scheme is Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron and Whisper White. The sentiment and hat images are from the Guy Greeting stamp set and the patterned paper is Moroccan DSP. I have used Burlap ribbon behind the sentiment, as it's quite a manly ribbon, don't you agree? The ribbon you can use you can't use ribbon Lol :)

Next in the hop is the totally talented Renee with a gorgeous card for us to see.

Thanks for hopping by,  I hope to see you again next time.

INKspired Blog Hop #37 - Flourishing Phrases

Welcome to the INKspired Blog Hop #38, I'm so glad to see you here! There's always some great ideas and wonderful cards to be inspired by, such as Teneale's.  If you've hopped here from her blog - you're in the right spot.

Here is this week's sketch ... 

I really wanted to use the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and matching Flourish Thinlits Dies in my project this week. They've been on the top of my wish-list since the release of the new cattie and I've only recently gotten my hands on them.  I just adore all the intricate detail in this bundle and I'm a sucker for floral motifs.

So here's the first card I made ... the colour scheme is Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Pink Pirourette.

I asked my hubby what he thought of my card (always a mistake!) and his opinion was that I had strayed too far from the brief. So, despite not sharing his opinion, I decided to make a second offering that features different elements from the same bundle. 

The colour combo in this card is Wild Wasabi, Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate.

I was really happy with the first card, but I think the second is now my fave. 
Which is your favourite? Love you to let me know.

Next in the hop is the totally talented Renee with a really fun card.

Thanks for hopping by,  I hope to see you again soon.
