Father's Day

Hello! Well, today is Father's Day! What a great day! The sun is shining, a perfect day to spend time w/ your dad! I wish I could! My dad (well, my parents) are at a graduation party today! And then he's going on business for the next 3 or 4 days! So, I won't be able to give him my gift until later this week! :( Huge bummer. As I think my dad is awesome! I made him a card that is quite unique. Then I made a card for my husband from our kids. It's basic, since he doesn't really care about that sort of thing. But, my dad cherishes everything that I've made him. He's my biggest fan! My husband looks at my creations and just says, "very nice" and continues watching the latest sport on tv. (Insert rolling eyes here!) ;)

I recently purchased some Tim Holtz stamps at Michael's, and wanted to try them out for this very masculine holiday! First up is my card for my dad. I had several layouts in my head, but this one won because that car is much bigger than I originally thought!

I used Western Sky (SU!)(retired) d.p., chocolate chip, sage shadow, and very vanilla cs. Hardware from Michael's. Assorted buttons. Script Texture cb folder, and Labels One nestabilities. Happy Father's Day stamp from SU!'s All Year Cheer.

Then lastly, I have the card I made for my husband this morning. He was working this morning, so it's not like I was making in front of him! LOL! Anyway, the clock is actually from Kelly Panacci's Time Flies (found at Michael's). The "hands" on the clock are actually game spinners from the Tim Holtz line. I versamarked the clock and did the whole clear e.p. over and over again over the clock and then stuck it in the freezer for about a half an hour. Then when I took it out, I cracked it and it made those lines. The paper is from Prestwick (SU!)(retired), Night of Navy, and Basic Gray. I added little dew drops in the corners just to add some detail. The ribbon is basic gray taffeta.

And that's all folks!
I hope you all have a wonderful day w/ your fathers and husbands!

  1. Wow Erin, I love both cards and I don't think the one for Kevin is basic at all. Great job, Did he like it??
