Father's Day

As Father's Day is fast approaching I wanted to make some cards from my boys to give to their lovely daddy.  I started to think about what hubby stood for he is loving, patient, kind, a role model, I hope that my boys grow to be just like their daddy, and then this card came to me.


I used publisher to create a banner with the words DAD and then added other words around it to show all the qualities that their daddy has.


This was printed onto white linen card stock from the Papermill Shop and then layered with pale blue and navy cardstock. The sentiment was typed on the computer and the wash background was printed from a download from Pink Petticoat. The ribbons and brads are from my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges, Crafty Cardmakers - Cards for Men and Creative Card Challenges - For the man in your life.

That's one card made and from my youngest son I made this card, we call him baby bear and my husband loves fishing so it seemed to suit!


I printed popcorn the bear from my cd onto linen cardstock and pyrimaged the image. A couple of pastel pieces of card made the layers and the sentiment was printed from the computer directly onto more linen cardstock. I added a little bling, just a little, I couldn't resist!  I am entering this card into the Spoon Full of Sugar challenge which is Enjoying the Sunshine, although it mostly rains when hubby goes fishing, it looks quite sunny in this image!

Finally and last but not least, this card is for my father-in-law from us all on Father's Day


Papers and sentiment are a digital download from Pink Petticoat all printed onto linen cardstock (I am loving linen at the moment, have you noticed!) and the ribbon is from my stash.

We are having hubby's dad and family round for a BBQ this Sunday, however you spend your weekend, I hope you have fun and Happy Fathers Day to all those special dads out there!

Tracey - these cards are so lovely and love the way you did that one for your hubby with all the words on it. I liked this style when you did a similar one - not sure if it was valentines day or not. But it really is effective and so personal as you've thought about all the words to include.
