Clipper Ship

When I saw this stamp set in the Summer Mini catalog, I immediately thought of my Dad.  When I was a kid, Dad got interested in making model ships.  He made several really big ones.  They must have been 2 ft. long.  All that rigging was amazing and he was so patient in getting everything just right.  They were beautiful!  He taught me a lot about crafts and has always encouraged whatever craft I was OC about.

Here's my clipper ship.  Not as intricate but much quicker.

Susan gave the One Layer Wednesday challenge this week.

OLW Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half. No other layers allowed.

2. Make a Father's Day card (for a father or special father-figure in your life). Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

3. Upload your card somewhere online and link back to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.

4. The most important rule of all: HAVE FUN!!!!!

My Dad is going to get several Father's Day cards this year.  He'll have a Father's week instead of Father's Day!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  The Open Sea
Ink:  SU Markers (Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy)
