Calling ALL beginner Cuttlebug Users!

Welcome to the Cuttlebug Blog. We are excited you have stopped by to visit. So relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy your stay here. We have decided to dedicate this site to beginners! (Seasoned Veterans welcome too!) As I am a beginner Cuttlebug'er I have looked around other blogs and get kind of discouraged by all the very advanced (and fabulous) designs. So I thought to myself, beginners need a place to feel welcome, make mistakes (as I am sure I will ;) and grow with creativity! So lets join together and Create, Inspire , Teach, Grow!

Challenge #5 Fathers Day

Its June. Can you believe we are in the sixth month of 2010 already? Boy how time flies when you get older. I remember when I was little a day seemed like forever. One good thing about June we get a chance to celebrate our Fathers (and summer is here of coarse). So our challenge this month is to create your Fathers perfect gift. What does your dad like to do on Fathers Day? Mine always wants to Fish so I made him a "fishin'" Fathers Day card.
We are showcasing the Bo Bunny "Roughin it" line this month. As you can plainly see it's not just for outdoor enthusiasts. The Design Team has outdone themselves again this month. If you are looking for some great inspiration then look no further... We have you covered!

Base: 6" x 12" Cardstock, Trifold @ 4" And a little help from a free template on Paper Scrapz website.
Card pocket and vest was embossed with Cuttlebug's Herringbone embossing folder. The shirt is Bobunny's "Back to Basics" layered ontop of the cardstock. And I used a decorative brad for the vest button and a real button for the jacket. The tie is made from grosgrain ribbon.
