It's a Brand NEW Challenge Blog - Help us gRoW!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I have lots going on today.  If you're looking for the All That Stickles Turquoise mid linky reveal, click here.

If you came looking for the first EVER Get Inky! Stamps National Repeat Day hop, click here.

There's a new challenge blog that goes live today, and I'm so excited to be a part of it.  I love a good challenge.  I'm competitive by nature, so challenges and I get along well.  But, I'm also kind and helpful by nature, so finding a caring, nurturing group of ladies is fun.  I found a perfect fit with the Craft Lovin' Challenge Blog.  This blog, hosted by Tabitha's Designs and the Craft Channel is sure to be a popular one.  Our first challenge is Father's Day.  Link up anything -- card, layout, altered project, home décor, as long as it has something to do with Father's Day.

Here's what I made for some inspiration for you:

Isn't he a stud?  Yeah, Mr. Fix it is perfect for Father's Day.  My father was a carpenter and an all around fixer upper, so I suspect this card is heading his way. All the designer papers, including the fun tools background paper is by Tabitha's Designs.

The stamp is from Unity/Angie Blom and is called "Alex Guy".  He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers on Cryogen paper.I used an angle Corner Chomper throughout the card.  The red bling is from my stash.  I hope you enjoy this card. 

Now, hurry, enter your own Father's Day projects -- you have two weeks before the next challenge starts.  It's going to be sooooo much fun!! There are GREAT prizes to be won!

I'm entering the card in the following challenges:
