Father's Day

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  The weather here has been picture perfect with comfortable temperatures and low humidity.  Definitely time to enjoy the outdoors.  Unfortunately, I have come down with some sort of bug--cold, sore throat and body aches.  Don't have time for that! 

Tomorrow is Father's Day.  We are having my Dad and Mom over for dinner to celebrate.  Poppyseed chicken, strawberry shortcake and ice cream cake are on the menu.  For the occasion, I made this card for my Dad.  The card base was made from Recollections cardstock (as well as an envelope to match using my Martha Stewart scoring board).  The papers are leftover scraps from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found collection.  The tag and diecut embellishment are also Recollections.  All the edges of the papers, pennants and tag were inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.  Making Memories stickers were used to spell out Dad on the tag.  I tied some twine in a bow on the tag and adhered it to the card with Therm-o-Web Foam dots for dimension.  I believe the velvet brown flower is from Maya Road.  I punched a couple of fronds from the papers with a Martha Stewart punch and added a couple of buttons to the lower corner to finish it off.

I wish a very Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  Thanks for stopping by!
