You Made It Monday...On SUNDAY??

Dad, grads, weddings, babies, it seems like we celebrate tons of things in the month of June!  The best part is, they are all super fun to celebrate.  I hope you are all having a great time this weekend celebrating that special dad in your life.  In honor of good ole dad, I decided to focus on him this week with some amazing creations you all shared using the Dad Word Die which is why we're posting today, Sunday instead of tomorrow.  Don't worry, I'll be covering most of those other areas of celebration in weeks to come.  So, just a heads up, make sure you are sharing your amazing creations!!

First up, I found this card by Nance Salkeld while I was checking out different challenge blogs.

I love how Nance split up her background that she used Cover Up Die: Tribal Chic to create.  It looks great like that especially with a bright yellow Dad Word Die.  It all comes together to be a really cool take on the challenge and a cool card for an even cooler dude!  Thanks for sharing, Nance!

In case it wasn't obvious that I was checking out challenge blogs for inspiration, you may notice that this card by Kymona was also created for a challenge.

Talk about CAS perfection!  You don't get much more clean and simple than this.  The best part is, it still grabs your attention and looks good doing it.  I love how Kymona cut the Dad Word Die from some fun paper with just a bit of pzazz.  It really makes this card even more fun to look at!

You guessed it, this card from Ria Montefalcon comes complete with challenge blog inspiration.

Ria's combo of patterned paper on this card just makes me smile!  I also love how she used the Sunshine Die as little accents along with her star.  It's brilliant! The Dad Word Die just jumps out at you cut in that dark slightly patterned paper.  What an amazing layout, Ria!

Our final card today is also, strangely enough, created for a challenge blog by Jeanne Jachna.

Talk about amazing combos of patterns and colors!  I love the arrows and the layers.  It's so fun to look at.  The best part?  Jeanne created this amazing card with the Dad Word Die AND one using the Mom Word Die.  You must go check them both out on her blog.  WOW!

While I'm on the subject of blogs, don't miss out on all the amazing inspiration over at A Blog Named Hero.  They are doing amazing things with Lil' Inker Designs products at the moment.  You won't want to miss out.
