Father's Day Cards

I wanted to share with you the cards that I made for my Father-In-Law and my Dad! The first one is for my FIL. He is the cook in the family and everyone always loves his chicken fried steak! I used my Everyday Paper Dolls to make both cards. I had a hard time with the hair, both my FIL and Dad are balding and there was not hair for that. So, my dolls have hair! I also tried to cut a spatula for his hand, but it was too small and wouldn't cut right. The best part about these cards is that I used all scraps! I cut both dolls at 3" and inked all the edges with Creamy Brown chalk ink from Colorbox. The face stamp is from Peachy Keen and the sentiment is and ink is CTMH. I couldn't think of a good sentiment, so I used my "you rock" stamp and crossed thru rock and hand wrote cook with a SU marker.

This one is for my Dad. He is a farmer in his retirement years! This was perfect because he loves to wear his overalls! This sentiment was cut from Old West. The background paper is October Afternoon.
