Father's Day & LOTV

Here are a couple of Father's Day cards that i've made for my Dad, both using stamps from Lili of the Valley, one retired stamp, and one still available in the store.

This first card uses the retired stamp, Dad's the Name...

I bought this stamp years ago, and think i've only used it two or three times in the past, so I thought i'd ink it up for my Dad's card from me & my hubby.
I stamped using Memento ink, then coloured the image with promarkers.
The patterned papers are both from the same pack, Dovecraft's Back to Basics / Blue Skies.
The sentiment is computer generated, and I finished the card with some tool charm die cuts by Die-namics.

I'm entering this card at:
QKR Stampede - one for the guys
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - use a die cut
ABC challenge - J for 'just as you like' (A/Goes)
Crafty Calendar - Father's Day / for a male

Here is my other card, using LOTV's James Laptop...

Now, my Dad does own a laptop, but he doesn't really know how to use it to it's full potential, as all he does is play puzzle games on it lol. So I thought this stamp would be perfect for him for his card from Jake.
Again, stamping with Memento, and then coloured with promarkers. I also added a little Wink of Stella to the laptop, then cut the image out.
The patterned papers for this card are by Lawn Fawn (Pint sized Patterns / Beachside)
The sentiment is computer generated, but I added 'GRANDAD' using Tattered Lace alphabet dies.
I finished the card with some stars cut using a Marianne die, with added Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.

I'm entering this card at:
Sweet Stampin - 3 or more layers
Die Cuttin Divas - Father's Day
The Male Room - Father's Day

Thanks for looking, hope you have a great day xx
