Happy Father's Day

I love my dad! He is the best dad ever. I think I can only remember him raising his voice or showing anger 3 times in my entire life. Once was when we were camping as kids and we pulled into the camp site after midnight. He was trying to get the stuff off the of the top of the car so we could get the tent up and the box of pots and pans crashed out sounding like a big clap of thunder. Of coarse, he was then angry and started tossing the pots and pans in the back of the station wagon. We 4 kids and mom were sitting outside trying not to laugh very loudly. Anyway, we all chuckle about it now but Daddy-O was not a very happy camper the time that box of pots and pans crashed out in the middle of the night, likely waking up everyone at the campgrounds! LOL!

Well, I have so many fun memories of my daddy! So, here are a few cards I made in Honor of Father's Day. I gave dad the navy card and the boys and I will give Doug the other one tomorrow. Dad is a minister and wears lots of ties so this stamp set from Stampin Up, Best Dad Ever, fit my dad to a tie....er, uh, I mean tee! The boys and I thought Doug would like the pun on the other card. I printed the words off on the computer and we all think Doug is a pretty "tie"riffic daddy!!





Both of these cards use the Best Dad Ever stamp set that is found in the Summer Mini Catalog. You can access the catalog online by clicking over to the right of this blog shere you see the catalog cover. It will take you directly to the summer mini. I used Real Red, Tempting Torquiose and Tangerine Tango cardstock and Stampin Write markers. The 5 ties come on one larger stamp. I used the markers to color each tie individually, then huffed on the stamp, then pressed on my paper.

This card uses the Top Note Diecut found on page 207 of the current catalog. Stamin Write maker colors used were Garden Green, More Mustard and Night of Navy. The same color of cardstock was used.

I hope you all have a wonderful day with your Father's or the father of your children! :) I know we will have a great day with Doug tomorrow and we had dinner last night with my dad!!

I do have extra copies of each of these cars for sale if anyone would like to purchase them. They are $2.50 each.
