Father's Day Card

Hello again!!
This is my 2nd post for the day!
Here is the card I made for
my hubby for Father's Day.
I used the new weekly free file
over at the Silhouette Store.

I added some tools to the front that
from the SIL Store.

I did not cut the DAD that came with the tool box,
I added a tag instead again from the SIL Store.

Here is a close up of the tag.
I just love the paper, isn't it perfect??

Thanks for visiting.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Peachy Keen 3D Birthday Challenge

Hello to all my crafty friends!!
I have being having so much fun learning
and playing with my brand new Cameo!!
I joined a great FB group my bloggy friend
told me about.  It is called Cameo Friends,
and they are a great group of people
that share their knowledge of all things Cameo.
They have all kinds of tutorials and if you post
a question, someone is always quick to answer.

Anyway, I made this simple little gift box
for my hubby's birthday.  He always kind of
loses out because his birthday is June 17th,
which is always close to Father's Day.
This year his birthday is the day after!!
Anyway, I made him a Father's Day card too
which I will post next!!

I made this box to enter the Peachy Keen
Challenge 13-23 :: 3-D Objects :: Birthday

The box is from the SIL store.
The baseball and bat are from
The font for the Happy Birthday is
called EA Sports and I downloaded
it for free from
After watching one video, I was easily
able to download the font and then
weld the letters together!!
The cute little faces are from
Peachy Keens Simple Simons Assortment.
My hubby wears glasses, that is why
I chose that face for the ball!!

Now for the fun part!!
After watching a few good videos
I was able to print and cut
a few images from my husband's
favorite team the Los Angeles Angels!!

The baseball diamond was from the SIL store.
I know this is a pretty plain, no frills kind of
project, but I had to keep in mind that
it was for my hubby, so I hope he loves it!!
I am going to fill it with a few of his favorite candies.
I will also be entering this card in the
following challenges:
