It’s seems I’m behind again. I’ve been so busy getting nothing accomplished. Well not really but it seems that way. But I just could not let Father’s Day pass without posting all of the great card’s from Father’s Day.
The first card is from a last minute workshop that I had before Father’s Day. So it had to be simple. I picked the colors from the card made with this stamp set in the Spring-Summer catalog. And the card idea came from the Peaceful Wishes card on page 36 of the same catalog.

I made this card for my husband. One night I was surfing the web and came across the website of an extremely talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and saw a card I just fell in love with. So I had to CASE it and this is what I came up with. You can check out her website at stampinat6213.blogspot.com I distressed the edges of all the papers with the cutter kit except the card base. Then I inked the edges with a sponge using chocolate chip, really rust and creamy caramel inks. I used the same colors on the twill tape. On the sage shadow stars I added sage shadow ink to the mix. The stars were attached using Stampin’ dimensionals.

This card was made for my husband by our 4 year old Brandon. He used Stampin’ Up! card stock but refused to use anything else. He was very determined to use the foam die-cuts so he could use the glue stick. The glue stick and scissors are his tools of choice. He was so proud of his card that it was hard for him to wait until Father’s Day to give it to Dad.
The next card was done for Dad by our 10 year old, Chase. I gave him stamps and paper and this is what he made. He doesn’t stamp a lot but I guess pays more attention to what I’m doing than I thought. If you notice the card base has been sponged with white craft ink.
And this is a picture of my husband and boys on Father’s Day after our pancake breakfast. Our plan was to take pictures during breakfast but everyone was so excited about eating pancakes ( I don’t hardly ever make them) that we forgot. So we took this one afterwards. And if you can’t tell my husband HATES to have his picture taken. And when he finds out this picture is on my blog….ooooh is he gonna be mad! UPDATED August 1,2008 As you see there is no longer a picture of my husband and boys. For some crazy reason my husband was looking at my blog today and saw that his picture was still here. He said he thought is was only going to be there temporarily and asked me to remove it. So I did.
