Father's Day Card Using Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artiste and Cricut Mickey and Friends

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #66 - Anything Goes Manly Card/Father's Day
Hi to all my friends/fellow bloggers.  I missed a couple weeks of posting due to vacation.  We went to see my family in MO and spent some time at Branson as well.  We actually saw "The Texas Tenors" live in Branson.  They were originally on America's Got Talent and they are incredible singers.  We had our pictures taken with them and got their autographs.  We tried to see them two years ago; but they were on tour.  This time they were only there one night; so we took advantage of it.  We only had to move 4 times due to my allergy to perfumes/cologne/smells.  LOL!!  We were lucky it wasn't sold out.  Everyone loves to wear their perfumes/colognes when they go out; so I don't usually go anywhere like that.  My husband wanted to see them; so I decided to brave it and go with him.  It gets old telling him I can't go. 
While we were there; we helped my daughter move her household goods into storage.  Her closing on her new house was delayed until sometime in June; so they had to move in with her 89 yr. old grandmother.  Can you imagine?  4 kids, 3 dogs and a cat moved in with this sweet little lady.  She seems to be enjoying herself despite the chaos to her normal life. 
It is nice to be back.  I missed my blogging/crafting and all of your wonderful comments.  I am back in time to make my husband a Father's Day Card.  It is so hard to go that long without crafting. 
It is time for another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #66 - Masculine/Father's Day.  Our sponsor this week is SK Digis.  Check out their blog for wonderful Digi Stamps.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer; please add GDT behind your name when you enter.  We would love to have you join our team for a week. 
I chose to use QKR Stampede All Tied Up.  I had seen this image previously and decided it would be cute for my husband a card.  I received a newsletter from PaperCrafts Magazine with free Digi stamps; so I used two of those as well.  Click above for the link.  I also used the Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artiste and the Cricut Mickey and Friends for several die cuts. 


Supplies used for this card:
Die Cuts
Cricut Artiste - Happy Father's Day Sentiment inside, Ties and inside sentiment shape -
Cricut Mickey and Friends - Anchors 
Cricut Art Philosophy - Circle and scallop circle
Stripe paper - Cloud 9 Design

Blue card stock - CTMH Lilac Mist (Retired color)

Used Lilac Mist ink pad for coloring the tie because I didn't have a marker set for that one.  It is a retired color.
Copic Marker
Bear - E25
Digi Sentiment inside and outside - PaperCrafts Magazine
Bling - K & Company

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
