FABULOUS FATHERS!

This week over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge the challenge was to make a project for a father who is someone special in your life. My dad passed away a few years ago and boy do I miss him! I made cards similar to this for a SWAP that I was in with my Design Team. For this card I used a Versamark ink pad and stamped the old fashiond cars on it and if you notice the clock says it's 6:20. Why am I mentioning the time...well, because it's my dad's birthday. He was born on June 20th. I'm not very good at making masculine cards but actually enjoyed making this and I even think it turned out pretty well.

So, now it's your turn! Let's see what fabulous creation you can make for a father that has made a difference in your life!

That is a great card, Priscilla! I am also gonna make a Fathers day card, actually two. Yikes...I need to different designs!

My Dad's birthday is also in June. His is the 28th. He has also passed. It has been 19 years, but it still feels very fresh like it happened yesterday:(

Your card is beautiful! I love the vintage-y feel of it and all the over-stamping you've done on it.

Father's Day is a hard holiday for me and I rarely make cards with that theme anymore. My dad died 4 years ago, and it is still hard for me.

Have a great day!
