For A Special Dad

Whew! I got the Father's Day for my husband done in the nick of time.

I think I might have went a little nuts on the distressing but my husband always says he likes when I "rough up the edges so everything isn't all perfect." This card should be perfect for him.

I wanted to share one of my favorite pictures of my husband taken last year at our Halloween party / bonfire.

Thank you for looking!

Challenges for this card:

Supplies used for this card:

  • Images: Daddy's Heartbeat Sentiments digital stamp set by Raindrop Echo Designs on Whimsy Stamps

Cheryl this is awesome! I love distressed edges, and it works just perfectly with your DP and wonderful sentiment as a focal point. Love that saying as I know men who took the spot of a father that was vacant. ;) Great job, thank you so much for joining us in our Guys challenge at ACLP!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
