Dad's plaid

Saturday was my dad's 84th birthday.  He is just the best!  I like to refer to him as Superman, because he really can do anything.  He is in great shape from walking 5 miles every day, and he whistles a happy tune all day long.  I feel so blessed to call him my dad!  Another great thing about him is that he is always well-dressed.  If he is not wearing a suit and tie, he can be found wearing a short-sleeved, button-down plaid shirt, so I tried this homage to him in card form:  

And here's my dad at age 81, climbing the rock wall on a cruise ship (faster than I did).  Always wearing the plaid shirt. :)  Told you he was Superman.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.


Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.

Father's Day & CFC 105

Hello again.  I'm just briefly coming up for air after hiding from the freight train of the end of the school year.  Graduation, birthdays, camping trips, and Father's Day--all in the same week?  Um, okay.

Anyway, here is a Father's Day card for my dad (and a twin one for my FIL).  I love this World Map stamp!  This also qualifies for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, using maps.  Yahoo!


Stamped on white cardstock in Versamark, then heat embossed in white.  Then I used Distress inks to sponge on the color.  Love this look!

The inside of the card says, "Dad, Grandpa, Father-in-law.  Happy Father's Day!"
