Can you believe how fast time goes by? We're already 6 days into the month and Father's Day is only TWO weeks away! TWO weeks! Time to start making cards & special gifts for all the DAD'S in the family. And that's what this week's FCCB Challenge Me Mondays #63 is about - #1 DAD. Let's show DAD he's #1 by making a project just for him - make sure to include at least ONE Cricut Cut.

This week FCCB is being sponsored by no other than Whimsie Doodles. Whimsie Doodles' is an online digital stamp store with images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between.

Whimsie Doodles' owner, Melyssa, generously supplied the design team with images to work with and a $10 Gift Certificate to the Whimsie Doodles online store for the participants. Please check out FCCB's Challenge Me Monday #63 post for all the details.

For my #1 DAD card, I went with Whimsie Doodles' recently released 'Dad's Sippy Cup' image. This is such a true image - what man doesn't like a mug of beer?

I colored in the beer and badge with my PrismaColor Pencils. I then Paper-Pieced the title with some Jillibean Soup 'Chopped Tomatoes' Paper. The mug has a slight touch of Glossy Accents to give it the 'Frosted Mug' look. And I used my Liquid Applique to give the beer some 'foam'.

I also paper-pieced the banner and pop-up with some of my homemade deminsionals.


I used Cricut Design Studio and Plantin Schoolbook to create a frame that resembles one that could be found in the Elegant Edges cartridge - I really have to get that cart.

I based the card on the current TCP Tuesday Challenge 160 - A Sketch.

And no card would be complete without a matching inside.

Now, its YOUR TURN! Create a special project to show DAD how special he is. And be sure to check out the rest of the Fantabulous DT creations. Don't forget to link up your #1 DAD project by Sunday, June 12th at 11:59pm EST for your chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Whimsie Doodles.
