TECC73 Simple and Manly

June 19th, 2009

Wow – Lately it seems like things have just gotten busier and busier.  Good busy – just haven’t gotten to blog as much lately.  Heck I still have stuff to show from class last week…and I have brand new SU sneak peek stuff I haven’t even played with or talked about yet.  We’ve been enjoying Tessa and continuing on our quest to get lots of things done around the house and yard this year.  I’m so excited because we’ve scheduled painters to do most of our interior in July and that will be followed by the installation of new carpet.  We’ve needed this for a long time – it is going to be sooooo awesome!

I better stop myself from rambling on and get to today’s card.  Of course it’s Friday and I’m here with another one of Taylor’s fab sketches.  This one is especially easy and versatile to work with!


I needed a Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law and this sketch was perfect.  I decided to keep it super simple with the TE Father’s Day Key Ingredients  (cardstock, patterned paper, ribbon and screw style brads) along with this SU sentiment as the focal point.  I have to admit that I feel a little like I’m cheating when I do something this simple, but honestly I can’t think of anything else I would have done on this masculine card and the KI make it so darned easy to pull the elements together.  I’m not seeing the Father’s Day KI in the store at the moment, so it might be sold out.  I do see, though, that the Cupcake Key Ingredients have been re-stocked.  You are going to want to pick up one of those for sure if you haven’t already!  It’s irresistably adorable!

Let’s see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up this week:

  • Ana Wohlfahrt (later today)
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Lynn Mercurio
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • Rachel Sztonyk is this week’s Featured Sampler
  • Taylor Van Bruggen – of course you want to hop over to her blog to see her sample and get all the challenge deets so you can play along with us!
  • Also when you get to Taylor’s blog be sure to scroll down one post to find out all about the Moving Sale going on now at the TE Store.  There are some amazing deals!  And if you are here in SoCal with us I really hope to see you at Taylor’s Farewell Cupcake Party on Saturday. 

    Heading into a very full weekend with a graduation party tonight, a wedding tomorrow morning and then straight to the Cupcake Party, then a family Father’s Day BBQ at our house on Sunday.  Fun fun fun!  Hope you have a great weekend ahead.  Thanks for stopping by!

      What a great card for dear old “Dad”! Love the colors, but those “screw” brads just make this sooo male. My Dad would have loved it. {{{hugs}}}

      Fantastic Jami…I always have such a hard time with masculine cards. You knocked this one out of the park!
