Two Dad's Day cards

I made two Father's Day cards today, using OWH Sketch #115. Here's the sketch:

For the above card I used DP from another awesome My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found" pad -- this one's called "Breeze". It's official; I'm addicted to these little MME paper pads!! They are fantastic. The train is just a part of one of the DPs--I think it makes a great focal point -- and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado's "Happy Everything" set.

This card uses papers from my stash, the same sentiment stamp, and the ducks are Stampscapes "Loons in H20" rubber stamp.
This is a great sketch to play with!
Thanks for visiting; I love company!

You always make such gorgeous vintage cards and these masculine ones are no exception. I love the button treatment on the train card. Thanks for sharing.

Sherry, It's great to see you back again. I missed you. These are two fabulous cards. It's so nice when you can use part of paper as a focal point on a card. Your second card is just as attractive as the first one. You're on a good roll. Enjoy the week.

Beautiful cards, Sherry! I really love the ribbon/button detail on the first one - I might have to swipe that trick! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
