OHDBCGA with InStyle Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Its the "hump day" of the month...that means its time for a giveaway at InStyle Stamps! Head over to the ISS blog to get all the details!

Also... our fearless DT leader Taylor Usry had her baby finally! Congrats to Taylor and baby Owen!!

Our theme this month is fathers...trying to get a bit ahead of the game, ya know? So for my card I chose one of the new "A Day in the Life " images we are now carrying at the InSTyle Stamps store! This one is called Father and Kid.

I picked up a couple of other challenges along the way for inspiration! The colors for this card are from the Color Throwdown Challenge Blog. This weeks picks were Baja Breeze, Old Olive, So Saffron, and Kraft. (I know these are Stampin' Up! colors and I haven't been using them anymore....but the colors are really close!) And I HAD to play since my friend Barbara issued the challenge!

Since I already had the yellow thrown in, this also led me to this weeks recipe challenge from Ella at the Pink Elephant Challenge...TPE66...use yellow, pattern paper, and buttons! My papers are from Bo Bunny and I added a bit of Old Paper Tim Holtz ink around all the edges to age the look a bit. Sentiment is from Verve. The copics I used are all pictured below...there are WAY to many to list. Used a lot of neutrals this time :)

So, be sure to head to the InStyle Stamps blog to find out how you can win some new images and to check out all the other awesome dad eye candy from the rest of the DT! Each has a link by her card so you can go leave everyone some love!

Have a great rest of the week! Thanks for stopping by :)
