GiddyUp Pardner Father's Day Card and TWO GIVEAWAYS!

It's Guest Designer Week and you all are going to LOVE Leanne's work - take a look below:
Hello everyone, this is Leanne from, Created by Leanne, here taking over Joy’s blog this week! I am SUPER excited that Joy has asked me to guest design for her all week! Thank You Joy!

Just to tell you a little about me! I live in Northern Alabama with my husband of 21 years. We have one wonderful son and 2 BEAUTIFUL grandbabies. My family is my world! I have been crafting since 2007. It all started when I bought my first Cricut (the baby bug)!

I was immediately HOOKED!!

Since then I've owned every machine Cricut has released and as many cartridges as I could possibly get my hands on hee hee! I love anything and everything that has to do with paper crafts! I started out with every intention just to scrapbook but now I find myself making more cards and 3D items!

As for my style, I create things that I hope will make people happy and smile! Crafting is my outlet and wished I could do it all day everyday but we all know how that is ~ family first! I hope you all enjoy this week as much as I know I will!

My first project I'd like to share with you today is a card I've made for my husband! Father's Day is just around the corner and this year I didn't want to wait till the last minute (like I normally do) to make his card!

I've used the solutions cartridge, Camp Out for the frame. The cowboy on the horse, the desert background, and the badge were all cut from the Yee Haw cartridge.

Just a FYI, my husband has always secretly wanted to be a cowboy hee hee so I think he will love this!

On top of the badge, I've used hemp to make a bow and  one of the buttons from My Creative Time's, Stitched Button Dies set. The sentiments are also by My Creative Time!

For the front, I've used the set, Turn That Frown Upside Down For the inside, I've used the sets Lots of Love and Here's Lookin at You. Sorry about the photo! I have such a hard time taking pictures of the inside of my cards!
Here's another view....
I will be here all week with more cards and I even have a 3D item to share! It's going to be a FUN week and I hope that you will come back and visit each day! Have a GREAT week and thanks for looking! 

In honor of Joy letting me guest design this week I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway! 

Leave me a comment here AND on my blog CreatedbyLeanne (I would LOVE for you to follow my blog also) and I'll pick one lucky winner Sunday!

  120. Love these cards..I often find it hard to make a card for my father that doesn't have glitter, pink or polka dotted paper of another feminine color or blink...you give me inspiration to make a card that is still fabulous but not so girly or cutesy like I tend to do. Thns for all you do and the chance for a fab drawing. Happy day..gabbynorthpole@gmail.com

  121. I wanted to add in my post that My elderly Father lives in New Zealand i rarely see him..he cannot travel and I have a brutal work schedule which has not me to go see him as often as I should have that it is almost too late. Please take the time to visit your parents..you never know what may happen. If u r afforded the luxury of living 15miles away count your blessings and let your children get to know your father or mother.....God bless you all for your inspiration!!
