Some Father's Day Cards

Here is a selection of Father's Day cards I have made using a Debbi Moore Cards for Men CD1.  I still find Father's Day cards hard to make as I lost my dad in 1985 but they have to be made.
I was asked to keep the embellishments to a minimum as all of the cards had to be posted.  It's sad when this governs what people what to go on a card isn't it??
I have used various embellishments on the cards including card candi, Papermania Glitterations, cord, sentiments off the computer, cog die-cuts with brad centres and buttons.
I think my favourites have to be the motorbikes.  I'd love to have a ride on one.  Don't think my husband would agree!!!

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
