Dad You're A Winner

I'm just barely one step ahead of the game but ahead none the less, at least I'm not trying to crank out fathers day cards the morning of :)  I know you know what I'm talking about...that mad dash to get a card finished 3 minutes before you have to leave for Sunday morning breakfast with all the guys.... glitter still wet, and a quick scribble inside the card! LOL
 But not this week, this week I have a couple of cards finished...I almost broke my arm patting myself on the back! *giggle*

As many of you may remember Mr. wonderful is a big poker player, and when I asked the teen queen what she wanted to give her dad, she did not hesitate to request a card with a poker theme. Hello and thank you Cricut Fathers Day cartridge!! This cut is perfect for a card player, I did layer the white and hand cut it so I could have it Popped up off of the card......because lets face it I can't make anything without pop dots! 

I mixed Bella Blvd Tail waggers  and Cosmo Cricket upcycle for a bold and fun red, black and gray combo. I love the way this card turned out, and I'm sure he will too...good thing he is so busy this week- I know he won't have time to read the blog but even if he does he will act surprised because he is good like that!  :)

Happy Creating, come on back and don't miss the "super" card I have for you tomorrow!!
