Sentimental Sundays Challenge...

This week's Sentimental Sundays challenge is to make a Father's Day or Masculine card (with a sentiment) & as it is my brother's birthday soon I've made a card for him.  I used "Jim" from Digi Stamp Boutique, the papers are from Designs by Krista & I finished off with some punched tags, string, eyelet & computer generated greetings.  This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Meljens Designs.  The DT have gone all out this week & there are some stunning creations to check out & don't forget there are free sentiments too!

The challenges:
Creative Belli - Branches
Secret Crafter -  A Male Card
PaperPlay - Father's Day/Male Card
Fussy & Fancy - Card For a Man or Boy
Fab 'n' Funky - Magnificent Men
Everybody Art - Distress
Digital Tuesday - In The Garden/Outdoors
Creative Inspirations - Card For Dad/Man In Your Life
Word Play Weekend - Birthday 
ABC - F for Father's Day (or card for a male)
Wags 'n Whiskers - One For The Boys
Miami Doodles - Card For Boy or Man
Paper Variety - For The Boys
Sisterhood of Crafters - Celebrating Dad/Man in Your Life
Craft Us Crazy - Father's Day &/or Masculine
Deep Ocean - Anything Goes

I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend.  I can't stop thinking that today is the last day of our holiday & it's back to work & the daily grind tomorrow :o( (I'm really trying not to though lol)
