Father's Day cards

I have 2 cards to share today.
The first one uses an image from Just Inklined...

The papers are both by My Mind's Eye, Stella & Rose collections.
The spotty piece is from Mabel, and the striped from Hattie.
I diecut my lettering using Die-namics By the Letter dies.
The sentiment was printed off the computer.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Charisma Cardz - Father's Day
The Male Room - Father's day
The Pink Elephant - Father's day/Masculine
Paper Makeup - For the Men
Papertake Weekly - For the Boys
Passion for Promarkers - Boys/Men
Penny's Paper Crafty - anything goes

The following card was CASEd off Amy Rysavy (thank you for the inspiration Amy x)
I was looking at crafting videos in You Tube, and saw Amy's video for this card. I knew I wanted to create something similar, so straight away I bought the Die-namics tool charm dies and 'patiently' *cough* waited for postie to deliver them.

and here is an angled pic (sorry for the brightness from the gold mirror card)...

The wood grained patterned paper used here is from Basic Grey's Life of the Party pad. The 'nails' were just doodled on with a silver metallic promarker pen.
The tool charm die cuts were hung using brass brads.
'Grandad' was cut using Die-namics By the Letter dies.
The sentiment was printed off the computer.

I won't be entering this card into any challenges, as it was not my original design. Credit goes to Amy for this one. I just know that my Dad will love this card when my son gives it to him :)

Ok, so that's 2 down, 2 more to go.... Thanks for looking, later Peeps! xx
