Sami Stamps Release - We Love Dad

Happy Friday!!  Woot!
What a slow's always so annoying when you want something to get here really quick and then the days in between just drag.  Hopefully the next few weeks will be different?  :)

So today we have another amazing release from Sami Stamps, like always :)
The release title is We Love Dad, and it is stuffed full of perfect adorable images!
Whenever I'm making Father's Day cards, doesn't matter if it's for my dad or someone elses...I always have my dad in mind.  He's been a rock for me through so much and continues to support me in all my crazy decisions :)  I just love him!

But through all that, he wouldn't have been my dad if he and my mom hadn't decided to take the route of adoption when they decided they were ready for kids.  I thank God every day for the parents he chose to give me :)  So this first card was really focused on that.
I found this sentiment while browsing through my files and felt it fit perfectly.  Since I have fallen in love with shaker cards, that's what I decided to make up.  So I cut out a pocket and all the necessary layers and then filled it with some pretty sequins and a few sparkly die cut stars.  I added some simple stitching around the pocket too.

Then I colored up the sweet Striped Bow image from Sami Stamps and adhered it above the pocket.  After getting it all done, I thought it really looked like a cute hair bow instead of a bowtie :)  But that's okay!  While the card is simple, it has the most perfect sentiment!

I'd like to enter this shaker card into the following challenges:
    Card Mania #47-Clean and Simple
    Loves Rubberstamps #105-Add Some Doodling

With the striped bow also comes a Striped Tie!
I've been going for very simple cards lately, and this one turned out better than perfect!  I started by stamping a fun dotted line from Lawn Fawn all over the background, and then layered everything on.  All the edges are distressed and my tie image has been colored in with my ShinHan markers.  This card just feels like is screams DAD!  Lol :)  I love it!

I'd like to enter this Tie card into the following challenges:
    Charisma Cardz #12-Father's Day
    Paper Shelter #160-Make it Manly
    V's Sweet Ideas #23-Distress
    Viva La Verve Sketch Week 4

For my final card, when I saw this image (Watching the Baby) I knew I needed to use it.  While my husband and I don't have any kids yet, I still picture this being him someday when that does finally happen for us.
Baby cradled in his arms, playing games :)  So I made my sentiment a little bit more fun, and just kept the embellishments to a few stars.

I would like to enter this Gamer card into the following challenges:
    Delightful Challenges-It's a Guy Thing
    Color Me Creative #93-Father's Day/Boys Stuff

I hope you've enjoyed this release!  Be sure to stop by Sami Stamps to see the rest of the images, and the beautiful creations the design team has made to display them!!!
