MFTWSC111-{dad birthday}

So happy you are hear today. It's another Wednesday Stamp Club with a fun, and easy sketch. It is birthday month in my family, or should I say Birthday week!!! Today is my dad's birthday and  usually I don't see him on his birthday, but this year I do. My parents are stopping in for an overnight while they make their very first drive down to Florida. 
So I surprised him with a cake, card and gift from me and the boys. I used this week's sketch to make his card. 

I've been getting creative with more of the Inspired by line of stamps. Today I chose to work with the Lighthouses from Inspired by Lighthouses. I love having these stamps in my stash. This one worked great for my masculine card. I also used the sentiment from this month's Triple Scoop set (get it for FREE with a qualifying order), Western Sentiments. I stamped in in Sno Cone ink on the Natural Cardstock. 

Here's a closer look at the Circle Stax I used to accent the lighthouse image. I stamped the image with Momento Cocoa ink so I could add some subtle shading with my Copics. 

The Sketch also called for a tab at the top. I added two, one from the Mix & Match Banner Die-namics and then another from my favorite, Accent it-Labels and Tabs set. I used the Typewriter Alphabet stamp set to add the word, Dad in Sno Cone ink. I completed the layered tabs with a Nightshift Blue Button and twine. 

Here is this week's sketch. 

Stop on by Kim's Blog for all the sketch details and to see what the DT has done with it. 

We encourage you all to play along, and to enter your card in the weekly draw for a $15 gift voucher to the MFT Boutique. Simply follow the sketch and create a card or other paper creation. You may use any stamps and supplies that you wish. Each week, a keyword is assigned to the sketch. All you need to do to enter, is upload your card to the gallery at SCS, and enter the given keyword in the keyword box, during the upload process. After the deadline, we randomly choose a winner from that week's entries and the winner will receive a $15 gift voucher. If the winning card uses MFT stamps, the participant will earn a $5 bonus, for a total of a $20 gift voucher! That is up to $100 per month in prizes, JUST for playing along. We hope you'll join us in 2013.
