"You're The Man!" CTVS Blog Hop


I'm so glad you could join us for the second day of the Cardz TV Stamps "You're the Man" Blog Hop!  If you came here from Elaine's blog, you're headed in the right direction.  For our Hop we've been using the new set called "You're the Man"  This set is great for Father's Day or masculine birthdays.
                                           
My dad makes awesome steaks on the grill.  He adds just the right seasonings and has it timed perfect for the way I like my steaks.  I can just taste them now!  Delish!  When I was little he had a mustache.  I first made the card without the mustache, then my daughter told me he needed a mustache.  So I took a picture with and without one.  My card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The striped paper is from American Crafts and was cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  I used the Stampin' Up! ticket punch on the corners.  The bear and the chef's hat is from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge and was cut at 3 inches.  The apron and grill are from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  The apron and the grill were cut at 3 1/2 inches.  I had to cut the apron down just a little bit.  The spatula can be found in the From My Kitchen cartridge and was cut at 1 1/2 inches.  I used two Stampin' Up! tag punches for the sentiment.  For the flames inside the grill, I used my Fiskars grass punch using orange cardstock and sponged them with red Memento ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the Hop!  I'd love to hear from you.  Next up on the line up is my wonderful friend Jo.  Don't forget Mary is giving away 2 sets of Cardz TV Stamps to one lucky winner!  Just leave her a comment to be entered.  She will be using random.org to choose the winner.  She will announce the winner on Monday. (MY B-Day!!!!) Below is the line-up for day two of the Hop in case you lose your way because you don't want to miss a single project!

  53. Hi my friend. I'm late in commenting because we've been away, but when I saw your card it put a big smile on my face. I think it's gorgeous and I think I'm going to scraplift it for Father's Day. I love the papers you used - everything about it is just too cute :)
    Take care.
