Now, onto this week's challenge. It's Dad's turn in the spotlight! Please make a project that celebrates Dad. It can be a Father's Day card, gift, something that reminds you of your Dad or of being a Father/Grandfather...you get the picture!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday June 22, 2012. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE033 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Tess showed us her fatherly love with this picture taken on her wedding day 5 years ago...and that digital kit? From April......2010!!!!

Heather honoured the new father in her household with this adorable card using scrap papers and an uninked stamp she bought months ago with this particular occasion in mind.

Irini created this incredibly gorgeous and striking card with her hoarded kraft cardstock and Graphic 45 papers. Beautiful!

Sonya pulled out a 6x6 paper pad with bold designs that she previously had trouble finding inspiration from. Looks like you found it, Sonya! It looks great!!

Sarah acknowledged her Dad's service in the Army with this camo-themed card. Most of the supplies used come from her stash, especially those D-A-D letters, which are "super" old!

Alanna made this fabulous layout showcasing her Dad, but we also take notice of those Prima flowers.  Raise your hand if you, too, have a stash in your drawer?  That is what we thought!

And finally, Eka made this sweet tag. What item from her stash did she use? Everything! "Right down to the glue!"

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
