What man (or woman, for that matter) doesn't love a recliner?!

Hello everyone! Life is still at the insane level. I leave tomorrow morning for Vegas for my brother's film premiere. I am so excited! Keep your fingers crossed that someone sees this film and decides to distribute it! That would be so amazing!! It really does deserve to be in theatres all around the country!

I have actually never been to Vegas even though I have lived in SoCal for 11 years. I have super bad asthma and have never gone because of all the smoking. Well, Mike and I found a hotel that has an entire non smoking floor and a non smoking part of the casino. I am definitely not a gambler, but I want to be able to walk around and people watch! We are also going to go see the Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil show as an anniversary gift from my Mom! A lot of family and friends will be there to support my brother too, so it should be quite the reunion! I will let you guys know all about it when I get back! :) Any Vegas "must do" tips out there in blogland? :)

Back to the cards, here is another Father's Day card. I was thinking that a lot of Father's Day cards have camping or golf or tools, etc. Well, what about the Dad that doesn't like any of those things? So I came up with this card!
Recliners! I've never met a man that doesn't love a good recliner! :) I recently figured out that the Fresh Alphabet from PTI fits in a 3/4 inch punch. I think the letter look so cute that way!
I created this plaid recliner by stamping the recliner and then creating lines across it and up and down with copic markers. I didn't worry about going outside the lines because I knew I could cut it out. I am excited about trying this technique with other patterns! It could be really fun!
I used woodgrain and that Color Bok paper because it seems manly. jaja! I also used my beloved pop dots/dimensionals/foam adhesive on the recliners. Note to self: Seriously, buy some stock in glue dots and pop dots :).
Paper: Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm), Neenah Paper Classic Crest (solar white), Color Bok (forest friendly scrap pack)
Ink: Stampin' Up (close to cocoa), Ranger Adirondack (espresso), Papertrey Ink (ripe avocado)
Stamps: A Muse (recliner), Cornish Heritage Farms (woodgrain backgrounder), Papertrey Ink (fresh alphabet)
Etc: 3/4 inch circle punch, Copics (YG95,B95)
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
kelly marie

  5. That card is SO cute. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    Speaking of Love, I want to here ALL about the Cirque Du Soliel. Have you ever seen one before? I've seen several but not the Beatles one and I would love to know what it's like!

    Have an amazing time and good luck wishes to your brother!!

  6. I'm loving all your "manly" cards. ;)

    Have a fabulous time in Vegas! You gotta see the Bellagio water shows which is outdoors and away from the smoke. I still love it and I've been going every year for almost 15 years now.

    So jealous that you're going to see LOVE!
