A Daddy - Thank you!

A couple fun cards to post today.The first card is Going Fishin', a cute bear by Nina at There's Magic In the Air. I am using this image for a Father's Day card, but it would be so cute for any kid or adult that likes to fish. It was too late to link to  Magical Monday challenge, but I have a few more challenges I am listing it with.
This is the front...

And this is the inside...
I am entering it in the following challenges:
1. Alphabet Challenge - G is for Green
2. Color Chef Challenge - Colors: cream, muted green, soft blue
Artfulinkables - to try a new technique, I colored the 5"x5" front and then used nesties to cut out the oval and rectangle. Each was matted with navy blue CS and then placed back in position.
4. Just us Girls - use a digital image or digital background or both. The bear is a digi from Nina May at Paper Cupcakes.
5. Speedy the Cat's Challenge at Mark's Finest Paper - make your own background paper. I hope this counts - I sponged the sky and grass.

7. The Shabby Tea Room  - Summer fun theme
8. Create 4 Fun - sketch
9. A Spoonful of Sugar - a summer theme, use summer colors or something you like to do in the good 'ole summer time!

A CASE of Happy Birthday!

OK, I'm the first to admit it! I CASED this card from my own daughter, Kim - there, it's out and I feel so much better now, true confession is good for the soul! Actually, she called me today and said, "MOM, make a card! Get it done today! I don't care if you're busy or tired from waking up at 3:30 AM today, get to it, young (I made that part up) lady and make a card NOW! Man, she's tough, don't know where she gets it from....? So the card I CASED is the one she did for her DT position at 365 Cards, Day 101, Inchie X 10. Hey, I broke Pam's code for the challenges - see, it goes by the day, which this is 1 0 1. Flip it around, mix it up a little and she came up with 1" 10, or 1 inch square time 10! Which converts to and I quote, "Now I challenge you to put 10 inches on your card!"  WOW, I can do 5th grade math!

So, here is the front of the card I made today...

And this is the inside...

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
1. Create 4 Fun - recipe: black, white and color of choice
2. Everybody -Art -Challenge - Things with wings (my little lady bug button)
3. Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - black, white, and 3rd color choice
4. Sketch Girl - the sketch I followed (well, the one Kim followed and I copied!)
5. The Corrosive Challenge - to use die cuts, look close the red scallops the inchies are mounted on.
6. The Pink Elephant - the color red, scallops and a bow
7. A Spoonful of Sugar - Floral Delight (what the lady bug is resting on)
8. Cas-Tastic Wednesday Challenge - Buttons (that's my lady bug!
9. Challenge Up Your Life - Critter Crater and bling (lady bug and stickles on candles and cake) 
10. Charisma Cardz - spots and stripes
11. 365 Cards Day 101- Inchies times 10
12. Sentimental Sunday  - New or neglected stash (I have had these stamps forever, since I was addicted to E-Bay trying to buy every SU! stamp set I could get!
13. Wee Memories - to 'punch-it' (the inchies are punched as is the border birthday candles on the inside)
