Happy Father's Day 2016

Hi there!  It's a very warm sunny Father's Day here.  Happy Father's Day to all the Dads and those taking the place of Dads.

Today's card was made for my own dear Dad.  Whenever I need a masculine type card, I always go to my Tim Holtz stash.  The papers used are from his Correspondence collection.

Beginning with a dark blue cardstock base, I simply layered three different paper designs after distressing and inking the edges.  I attached an idea-ology book plate, stars and a hemp bow--all from Tim.  The bronze Dad stickers are from Making Memories.

Well, that's all for me today.  I'm off to begin preparations for Father's Day dinner.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and best wishes for a wonderful week ahead.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your kind comments.


  1. What a fantastic masculine design and I agree the correspondence papers look great for it. I'm sure your dad loved it.
