Wrapped Up in Father's Day Crafting

My granddaughter is sleeping over tonight, so we brought out the craft supplies (my craft room is her bedroom) and made cards and a project for daddy and grampa.

This is what I came up with, a cute card for my honey!  I made it using a Squigglefly digi image set called "A Man and His Grill" by artist Lynne Stansbery.  There are five digis altogether in this set.

The Squigglefly blog has a new challenge this week:  Wrap It Up - use your imagination. Wrap ribbon or twine around a layer, wrap a die cut around a corner, use wrapping paper instead of designer scrapbook paper, use an image with a wrapped gift...

After coloring my image with Copics, I framed it with cardstock and popped it on a base of leftover pieces of patterned papers.  I handwrote  the sentiment and "wrapped" my card with knotted twine. 

If you're going to play in this week's challenge, don't forget to use a Squigglefly image to be in the drawing  for a free digi!!

Oh, and here is my granddaughter working on her own project to give to her daddy this weekend.
He is going to love his present!!

I love this Pat! I think your coloring is so good and I really like how you did the sky in the background. The way you knotted the twine is so cool!
Looks like your granddaughter was having a great time making cards with you!

Great image with so much detail - I have it on my wish list. You colored it wonderfully and your papers are great. Your Granddaughter steals the show here. Her project looks super good and I am sure it will be treasured. Hugz!
