Fathers day

Wow has it been a long time since I last posted here!
I can't believe how life gets away from us and what we once were so dedicated to falls by the wayside.  My life has changed in so many ways since September 2015.  But one thing that hasn't changed is my love for crafting.  Sadly as time gets more precious I can do less but thought I would post some of my latest here and maybe enter a few challenges:)
Even though life changes I am still doing a monthly challenge (most of the time) with a group of friends using CTMH products.
I have used the stamp/die set from Jack cardmaking, paper is from Beautiful Friendship...
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Cardsz 4 Guys - Challenge #196 Father's Day
Die Cuttin Divas - Ch #373 ~ Masculine or Father's Day
Stinkin' Inkers - The Guys Have It

Artistic Inspirations -  # 202 Theme Anything goes/Optional Father's Day
Creativ Fusion Arts & Crafts Group  - Challenge #1 Celebrating Fathers

Hope to be around more often and post some more of my creations.  Thanks for taking a look.

The Reward...

Things are so very different now.  I am creating because I feel like creating not because I have a project due.  It is a wonderful feeling.  I have to say my Mojo has still perhaps taken a bit of a vacation but will hopefully recover soon.
As I was looking through some challenge blog I came across one with this photo for inspiration
Stamp Art Papel
Ages ago I bought a set of Dies and 3D images by Yvonne's Creations.
I have never used them and this just spoke to me...

The reward of a thing well done is to have done it.
I put together this masculine card using a bunch of different mediums for texture.
Paper is Tim Holtz and DCWV. Dies are Yvonnes & Cheery Lane. Metal placard is Tim Holtz. Wooden Gears are from Creative Expressions and the stamp as well as ink are Close to My Heart C1606 A thing well done.
I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges...
Scrap Art Papel - #42  WINNER YAH
Eclectic Ellapu -  Out of Your Comfort Zone*
Brown Sugar  #141 - Distress
Simply Papercraft -# 2 Freestyle/Steampunk

Best Wishes

Good Monday Morning it is time for a new challenge at Artistic Inspirations

Our theme is Anything Goes with a Twist of Flowers

Our Sponsor is Just inklined

I have a little sad news this morning. This will be my last project with Artistic Inspirations.
I have enjoyed my time as a DT member and an owner but all good things must come to an end and I have found my life to busy to continue owning the blog. Tonnie has graciously consented to continue Artistic Inspirations so you will still be able to enjoy the challenge with some great sponsors.

So on with my project...

I had the pleasure of working with two images from Just Inklined.
All of the paper comes from Close to My Heart's Hopscotch paper pack
Image colored with Touch markers
embellishment Close to my heart.

I would like to enter this project in the following challenges...

613 Avenue Create #117 A True Anything Goes/NO TWIST

One Stitch At A Time #233 Anything Goes with NATURE

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge anything goes /add a sentiment
