Thinking of the dads

This Sunday is Fathers Day.....just the time to be thinking about making cards for men.....something I don't do that often......but I had some 'bits and pieces' that had come with a magazine......not quite the type of 'bits' that I normally use.....but it seemed like a good time to try and put them to use!!
There was also enough of them to make quite a few cards......about 4 sets in all.....all sports related.
The first set are based on motor OH is a great motor and bike racing fan......more or less the only sports he watches.....either live or on I think my girls may be grabbing these.
I quite like the way that they've turned out.
The second set are for golfers.....I know a few of hopefully the cards can all be put to good use....they certainly aren't the type of card that I usually make.....but they were quick and simple.....and I think that they've turned out okay.
Waste not....want not!!!
Thought I might enter some challenges for a change.
Crafty Cardmakers, Come and Get It and Creative Inspirations want 'for a man'
Dream Valley Challenges, 4CraftyChicks and Cardz4Guys want 'Fathers Day'

They are brilliant and I am sure they will go down a treat in a lot of households. Wish I could use my freebies like that Jacky.

Wow, that red checkerboard really shows off the top layers - I am sure these would all be much appreciated. If they're not snapped up by your girls first!

Although the red set is my favorite (especially the one with the race car), the golfing cars would be a bigger hit here.
