whimsical wednesday challenge

happy thursday :) this week over at WW stephanie and the gals have challenged us with a fathers day project.be sure to go check out their awesome as always projects :)
  this is my first fathers' day since my dad passed , so another difficult one.  last year the man that was supposed to be my father in law passed right before fathers day .. life so sucks it big time sometimes eh! anyway..
for my card i created a tic tac toe game piece ( this is really cute all lovied up too using hearts and x's and o's ) ..i used my cricut and george cartridge for the stars and dad cuts. added buttons inked some twill ribbon with black ink and tim holtz fired brick distress ink. i stapled it to the game piece hard to see  i should have used a different color staple probably. oh well ;)   i also hand drew the lines with  black with ink then used fired brick and a q-tip to add the red lines. distressed with colorbox fluid chalk. you know how i love the vintage look. did a little doodling and computer generated the text. just a nice simple dads day thing :) hope ya like it :) thanks so much for stopping by and your kind words bring me joy :) have a great day :) xxxshelly

I love how it turned out and the buttons & stars are such a nice touch. It's edgy, masculine & cute all in one. Thanks for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday.

Father's Day is still hard for me, so I can just imagine how tough this one is for you. Beautiful card, though. Very masculine and sort of American primitive looking. Love the staples. I never remember to do that and it looks so cool. xxD
