Time To Post A Triple Play + One

Good Morning! My first card up is for the JUGs #35 challenge, to use dry embossing. I have made a manly card that uses one of my new Tim Holtz, Fades called cracked. My darling kids got the complete set for me as my Mother's Day gift, but the only catch was that I had to be patient because they were sent back to the manufacturer the first time by Tim cause he wanted them a certain way.
I used a charcoal card stock and then swiped the embossing with a white ColorBox pad. My image is a digi. The Dad part is a graffiti embellishment from Creative Imaginations. I added a grosgrain ribbon which had it's stripe colored with a Copic. My final accents are silver eyelets.
Next up, is this weeks entry for the Challenge#9, over at Off The Wall Craftiness. I am running a wee bit late with this one again this week. Thursday comes so quickly! Kim is giving away a set of Copics for this prize.I used the Sweet Birdsongs set from SU!. Punches are from MS. Gems are from K&Co. Ribbons are from American Craft. I colored with Copics and used #'s 0, C1, B00, B05, RV10, RV17, RV34, YR16. I am restocking my Anniversary supply!

Third and lastly for this post, is my Card for Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. They have a gorgeous inspiration piece this week! My colors are Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Tangerine Tango form SU!. Stamps are from Gina K. Designs, and include flowers from the Picture It set and Label and sentiment from designer Nina Brackett's Lovely Labels stamp sets. I used SU! and MS punches with orange gems from Michael's. I will also be entering this card into the Inspiration Challenge over at Stamp TV this week which is being hosted by Brenda Turner.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be back again later! Sorry if this is a really long post!
