Cards and " Red is a color"

This is my card for the Sweet N Sassy challenge this week. Challenge was Clean and Simple with a button. I couldn't use just one button, I tried...LOL! I've been wanting to use this paper forever. Inside is a phrase I saw months ago it says " A smile is a curve that sets a lot of things straight" It reminded me of a dear friend of mine who is always causing me to smile and reminding me to smile. Love you, Grace!

I received an order for 3 more Father's day cards today. Bugaboo stamps was giving away this image as their freebie today. It is perfect for one of the cards I need to make. The inside says " Hope your day is Par-fect" LOL!

Here I used a precolored image with some fishy background paper. I saw a quote that said " It is admirable for a man to take his son fishing, but there is a special place in heaven for the father who takes his daughter shopping" John Simon. So, what about the father who takes his daughter fishing? LOL!

Okay, I used one of the cards I made earlier and embellished it with these cool embellishments I found at Ollies. There are 5 all together. 3 are watches and 2 are compasses. Fits this card perfectly. I also again used the old truck pre colored image from Fred She Said. I just got so many good responses from the last cards I did with it!

Okay, so 3 weeks ago Jeff said " you need to get some color" So, I went to a tanning bed and started "tanning". I've been doing okay so far....until today. For some reason I burnt bad today! I look like a lobster. Jeff, of course, noticed when he got home tonight. So, I said " Red IS a color"  I would type LOL, but it is really hurting...ugh!
Off to a big yard sale tomorrow. Supposed to be the size of a football field. Looking forward to finding some good deals!
Have a great evening everyone!

What great cards! Your card for the challenge is adorable. I have to say though, my favorite of all of these is the father-daughter fishing team. Thanks for playing along with us at the SNS Digi Challenge Blog.
