A Father's Day card and some animal pictures!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday! We stayed home and cooked out on the grill and had family and friends over. Here is a Father's Day card I designed in Cricut DesignStudio. The Father's Day sentiment is computer generated and the rectangle I cut with my scallop scissors. Im sorry I can"t rememeber what size I cut the lighthouse,seagulls and waves. If you want the .cut file email me and I will email it to you. The card size is 7 in height by 5 in wide. I embossed the card cuttlebug swiss dots folder.

Cartridge used:
Life is a beach to cut ( light house, seagulls pg #79 and waves pg #77).

This card is for these challenges!
Cricut Cardz Challenge #27.
Cuttlebug spot Challenge to make Dads or Grads Card.
Cuttlebug Challenge: Be inspired #86 color challenge.
Simon Says Stamps Challenge: Father's Day/ Male Card.
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge : #14 Celebrate Dear Dad.

Here are some picture's of my father's farm animals. I took these picture in North Carolina, when I went down there to celebrate my father's 80th Birthday. I was there May 15 to May 24,2010. This goose was trying to hatch her eggs.
My father had to feed this baby goat with a bottle, because the momma goat milk bag dried up. When this little goat seen my father coming out, she would run up to my father. She knew my father was feeding her. This baby goat is so cute!
Here is a picture of my Father's cows. My family had so much fun In North Carolina. Have a great day everyone


  1. Very cute card. Fantastic embossing on that lighthouse. I would have never thought to do that, I like it a lot. Thanks so very much for adding your serene card to our dad challenge at CCC.

  2. Hi Judy,
    What a great Father's Day card! I agree with Jeri, I love how you embossed the 2nd layer on the light house. That gave it nice dimension. I just bought the Life's a Beach cart and I can't wait to start using it.

    Thanks so much for joining us at the CCC blog!
