Stars and Stamps Sketch #8

Here is this week's sketch from the Stars and Stamps blog. Shirley gave us this clean and simple sketch which I love. Thank you Shirley! It is super easy to make doubles of each card which I did. I just didn't photograph them all.
One of my favorite font designers is Kevin King of Kingsthings.
http://www.kingthingsfonts.co.uk/ I used his font Willow for the sentiment on the King of the Grill card. I used dies and punches as well.
I played with text art on this one too. Text in the round is something I love to use. The canoe paper and the center compass embellishment are from Debbie Mum. The other colored paper is made using Distress inks. The smooth circle and the spikey one are die cuts using Nestabilities dies.
All the cards I made with this sketch are going to OWH for the Father's Day card mailings.
