Ships Ahoy Card for A La Card Monkey Father's Day Challenge


Happy Father's Day!!!
My Husband loves ships and is a sailor at heart. He was in the Navy for over 20 years and spent most of that on a Submarine. He had a sail boat of his own for years and sailed almost everyday when he lived on Bainbridge Island.
So guess what... I sent him upstairs to my stash of stamps to dig out this oldie set from 2002. What a Sweetie!

I have had these buttons for over 10 years in my desk, rubbed the dust off and put them to use on this card.

I know that some guy would see this old rusty junk truck and say "looks like a fun weekend project" lol But we all know we would see it later on "Hoarders"
 
I think I can call this card Dusting off the old stuff!!! lol I have had this Alphabet set for so many years and only used it once.... gee's!!!

Ok here is some fun Stuff!!!
Spray Paint Party with Kim
Kim and I found this stuff at different Junk stores, or just stuff we already had.... but really needed some color! 

Here are a few of the things done. The really pretty chair is Kim's.  We ran out of paint! Darn it! I will have more pictures later. The paint is Rust-Oleum, chair is Satin "green apple", the frame is "berry pink" (Kim's favorite) and the tables are "aqua".

Ok.... here is a funny one for you. Kim has more paint on here feet then anything else!! Do You See The Strips of Paint!!! She had some sandals on that are now part Pink!

Thanks for looking
Hugs
