Father's Day and two LCOM challenges.

Photobucket

Happy Sunday to you all! Happy Father's Day!

This week at LCOM, we've got TWO challenges for you this week. You can make one card with both challenges or two different cards. And if your card is numero uno, you can post this on your blog!



We also choose other favorites, and those get badges as well! We all like TOOTs, don't we?



I picked the first challenge, and it's monochromatic. Make a card that has shades of one color. The second challenge is JJ's. Make a card with a transparent element to it -- a window, a see-through border, etc.

I did one card for both. The monochromatic tone is gray. The buttons on the top right are transparent.

I used Soldier Ian and a bunch of DCWV PP. This card is dedicated to all of the fathers serving in the military.

My DH was a soldier at one point. It was before the war so he never served. But he did live in another country for one year, and even listed in the National Guard after his Army days. I always found this part of his life very mysterious (it was before we dated) and his uniform very sexy (LOL!). It's my first time coloring Soldier Ian even though I've had him for a while.

Aside from being in the military, my DH is a hero because of what he does for our family. Can I tell you I am very lucky? He does most of the dishes and the laundry in our household! I need to tell him how much he's appreciated more often!

Anyway, hope you get to visit the other Card DTs' work:
