I've finally finished my father's day cards! Yeah!!! I chose to do some that were kind of involved this year. In case I hadn't mentioned it to you in an earlier post, my moto for 2010 is "USE WHAT YOU HAVE"! My goal is to use the supplies I have and to stop clinging so tightly to them. A lot of time I will create cards, if not specifically for someone or for an event already, and sit back and look at them and want to just hold on to them or I'll have a wonderful element I SHOULD use on a specific project and just can't seem to part with it. I know, I know, I can't take it with me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a selfish person or a greedy person, but a lot of the supplies in my arsenal I've had for years! Some were passed to me from my mother who is now gone. Some from my sisters Rachel and Susan, never to be found in the stores again and some are simply great finds of my own.

My goal for this year though, is to use what I have NO MATTER WHAT! I've actually been doing really good so far.  I've also decided to challenge myself more this year by trying techniques I've seen and have always wanted to do but just never did. Well, with all of that said, here are my father's day cards for this year. The DVDs in side them are old stash from probably more than three or four years! See what I mean? I hope you enjoy what I've done with them and as alway... Thanks for stopping by!

You've seen Dick Tracy in the previous post.

I have an 8x8 stack that has some old newpaper print
pages in it and the articles were about elixers, caskets, hangings, etc
and I thought it was perfect for this western theme dvd card.
I actually cut each article I wanted to use loose so that I could
place them randomly on the card and also pop up a few.

I unfortunately came up with a better sentiment for the
inside of this card well after it was finished. LOL! Oh well,
isn't that how it goes some time?

Already signed... Ooops!

Wow! Is that Ronald Reagan???

This is actually a copy of the sketch I did for the front
of this card. I wanted to keep the original. Anyone remember
this show? I do! I watched it every week! LOL!

I wanted to do some dimensional things with this one, so
I raised the sketch and then raised the die-cut letters
twice as high.

Finally, this is the dvd that's inside. I'm satisfied with the
cards in this post okay. I know they could be better but,
perhaps next time. I am my worst critic.
