Sketch This #86~Tribute to my brother and my Dad!

I adore these new 'boy' papers from Cosmo Cricket!! I made two cards this week following sketch 86:

This one I sent to my brother for his Birthday...he loves cars. In fact, one of his hobbies is rendering concept car models....not sure if I stated that exactly right.... You can check out his work here if you are interested. I am well aware that I may be a bit biased, but He ROCKS!!

and I made this one for my Dad for Father's Day...shhhh! He loves planes...he is a pilot and his favorite hobby has always been 'poking holes in clouds'. :) Anyway, everything about that image and even the 'howdy' sentiment completely reminds me of my awesome Daddy!! So fun.

Supplies for both cards: Cosmo Cricket PP, May Arts ribbon, WRMK grommets, AC and Melissa Frances Rub ons.
It's my son's Birthday today so we are headed into an evening and a whole weekend of fun!! Looking forward to all of it. Hope you have a great long weekend too!

I love the card. You have such a talent for design. I'm really amazed that both of us make money doing things we like!

By the way, I love the Animaniacs DVD set, just one problem, I already have this one! So, what do you want to do?

Love you sis! Tom
