Hi Peeps. I wanted to share the card I did for DH for Father's Day. I left it til the last minute and had to work like crazy yesterday to get it finished.
I found this stamp on our craft store field trip and just couldn't resist. My DH, Pop Pop to the grandkids, is always pointing out the trees and birds to the young ones. He's quite apt to give a Latin name for a tree, which I think means he doesn't really know the tree, but we play along with him anyway. Of course I had to ink up the stamps with my markers. It's so much more fun than doing a silhouette.
The trees are from my new Stampin' Up! set, Serene Silhouettes. I love this set! There again, I inked the trees with markers then went back and sponged the grass and sky. I stamped the grass with an old fern stamp from a set I believe is called Watercolor Minis. It was one of the first SU sets that I bought.
I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week. When I saw the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this stamp for DH's card.
I flipped it over so everybody was looking in the right direction.
Hubby liked the card and even put it on the mantle instead of shoving it back in the envelope. That made me happy! It truly is a one of a kind card. I doubt I could ever duplicate it. But he's a one of a kind sort of guy. And a terrific Dad/Pop Pop!

I talked to my Dad tonight. He's in the soldier's home and so far away from us. I wish he was near enough where I could visit him often. He sounds like he had a good day and for that I'm thankful. I hope you were able to spend time with a special Dad today, whether it was your own, your children's or just a special guy who's a Dad to someone.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
