FixaFella Father’s Day

It was so fun to get back to crafting after a few days away. I enjoyed seeing family and friends but my brain kept seeing card ideas everywhere I looked! This card uses one of the images I colored on the road. I was able to introduce my sister-in-law to Copics and Spicas and give a very brief tutorial. I think my brother-in-laws just thought I was flashing back to my youth since I sat coloring while everyone else chatted. Oh well, if they haven’t figured out I’m a bit ‘unique’ by now, it’s time they did. LOL I received the image in a swap and this is my ‘first’ Bella Fella to play with. I love the image and thought he’d be perfect for a handyman type of Father’s Day card. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Inspiration Cards for Dad with Hardware ~ 3 Clovers One for Dad ~ Corrosive Challenge ABC Challenges ~ M was for metallic, m was for male, e was for embellishments and b was for brads I don’t usually like to combine multiple challenges from the same blog, but it’s going to take me a LONG time to work through all the previous challenges on ABC. I’d better lump in what I can if I want to meet my goal! My Card Image Detail
I love this image from Stamping Bella but wish it were a bit more realistic to the men in my life. Now if this handy fella was balding with a bit of a pot belly he'd really look like the dads I'm making cards for! Notice the brads look like screw heads (flat and phillips are represented).
