it's nearly father's day, and thus time to make a card for jeff's dad. i wanted to use the phrase "world's best dad", but otherwise had no particular idea in mind. luckily, our newest caardvark, laura davis, and her friend kazan clark, have started a new sketch challenge site called "2 sketches 4 you" (dontcha LOVE the name?!) and thus my inspirational problem was solved, by using laura's terrific first sketch to make this:

(globe pic from an old book; patterned paper: american crafts, love elsie; glossy black cardstock: ranger; rub-on letters: making memories, ki; cardstock stickers: love elsie; other: foam tape, ek success corner rounder & small circle punch, decorative scissors, colorbox ink)

of course, laura isn't the ONLY new caardvark, tanis giesbrecht joined us recently, she is an amazing all-round crafter, awesome card-maker and FAB stamp designer for queen kat designs! her blog, paper princess at play is well worth checking out.

then there is natalie dever, a verrrrrry cool blogger, scrapper and stamper who is on LOADS of fab dt's (including the completely awesome di hickman challenge) on top of making the most luciously delicious cards you have ever seen! her blog is called dougnat diaries. i think you will like it! :)
