Some MCT Father's Day Cards!

Good morning!!! Did you see the new release from Emma at My Creative Time last week?!?!? It was amazing! And I was SOOO incredibly happy to be the lucky winner of her previous Throwback Thursday Challenge, because it meant that she sent me the ENTIRE release as my prize! How incredibly generous is that? 

Anyway - my very favorite set was What's Growing On? I just LOVE the mustache dies, and all the cute sentiments - especially with Father's Day coming up soon! I couldn't wait to get them out to play, so I started off with a couple of Father's Day Cards! 

I also used the Tag Dies, and the older set, "You're my Best Buddy" to make this card:
All the papers are from an older My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pad. 
I attached the mustache's with foam adhesive, and then the tag to the card with more foam adhesive. Added some doodles around the edges of the card with a black pen - because it looked like it needed something!
Added some V-striped twill ribbon from Ribbon Carousel to the top, and tied a PTI button and some twine around the top. I'm kinda thinking the tag could be easily removed to make a bookmark too - so a much more multipurpose card that way! 
For the next one - I used a Peachy Keen face, and just stamped the eyes and nose, then added the glasses and mustache! 
The paper is from the same paper pad, and the sentiment is from the MCT set "Here's Lookin at You!"  
I used foam adhesive under the center panel, then added some faux stitching around the edges of that, and the outer edges of the pattern paper. 
Aren't these stamps FUN!!! Anyway - I plan on using all the other set soon as well - but wanted to hop on and share these with you as soon as possible! 

It has been a zoo around here - I feel like I have been working lot crazy to get our house cleaned, sorted, and ready to put on the market. It is amazing how much stuff (((junk))) you collect in only about 8 years of living in the same house! Feels good to let some of it go, and get everything cleaned and organized - even if it means not very much crafty time! Can't wait to be free to work on it better though!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
