Tiddly Inks Tuesday - Happy Father's Day!

Good morning my crafty friends, how are you on this glorious Tuesday?  What's so glorious about it, well it's June, we are gearing up and making plans for our summer and it is now less than 3 weeks until school is officially over for summer vacation.  Besides, every day that I get to spend with my family and share my projects with all of you is simply glorious.  I am truly blessed to have so many wonderful people in my life.  Now, on the other hand the weather is downright miserable.  After and absolutely gorgeous week last week we have clouds, rain and cooler weather to look forward to this week.  Mother Nature sure has had some serious mood swings this year.  Our weather has been downright crazy!

At Tiddly Inks this week we are starting a new challenge.  Our challenge this time around is to make a Father's Day card.  Here in the United States Father's Day is just a few weeks away.  If you have already celebrated your Father's Day then just create a male themed card to enter into our challenge.  Christy has some great images in the store that you can use for this one.  For my project I used the Tiddly Inks Image, Carpenter Joe.  I'm not sure who I am going to give it to yet, my dad, hubby, my father-in-law or my grandfather, but they are all pretty handy so this card could fit any of them.

Materials I used for my Project - 
Copic Markers - B28, B26, B24, B21, E44, E43, E42, E41, R27, R24, R22, R21
Hero Arts Sentiment stamp
Tan pearls

Here's a close up of my colored image.

Now it's your turn, create your male themed cards, Father's Day for those of you in the Unites States, and enter theme into our challenge.  Need some more inspiration, stop by the challenge blog and see what the other fabulous Tiddly Inks DT ladies have created.
