Since my hubby's Father's Day card is on the masculine side of the scale (good thing -lol!), I thought I could get away with that title...but just in case you were wondering, yes, he IS handsome! Don't believe me? Well, this ought to remove any doubt:I know, I normally don't share pics of my family on my blog, so I guess I'm livin' dangerously by sharing this with you today. ;) His jacket pretty much says it all...he's a "manly man," the true rugged, active, outdoor-sportsman type (who would much rather be doing just about ANYthing outside than having to be indoors within reach of his Honey-Do list --Don't get me wrong, he's a good handy-man too, though it's just not among his favorite ways to pass the time -lol). I could go on and on about him, but I'll spare you. Suffice it to say that I'm truly blessed by this wonderful man, and so are our kids. Oh, I snapped that pic of him last month when we were camping...Day 2 with no shower (just imagine how cute he is when he's cleaned up -lol).
Anywhoo...his card this year was one of the quickest cards I've ever made. Nothing too fancy or fussy, just like him (gotta love havin' a happy-go-lucky, low-maintenance husband!). I followed a really great sketch I found over at OZ-Somestamps (she even listed the dimensions!), so once I decided on my papers, it went together fairly quickly. I love it when that happens! Now if only I could find a stamp set featuring a large arsenal of military rifles (not that I'd know how to use it, but HE'd love it fer sure! AR, AR, AR...done in my best "Tool Time" Tim Allen voice -lol).... I used the Protector set by Verve over the black gingham paper, randomly colored in some of the hearts on the panel on the right with a marker, did some edge distressing, and that was pretty much it. The sentiment is from another Verve set, Dad's Day, and I used it on the inside of the card as well: Well, I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend and that you're able to find ways to celebrate those special men in your life. Not sure what our afternoon will hold, but I know we'll be grillin' up some steaks for dinner and wishing our own dads (and older kids) were here to join us (but since my parents were here for a week last month, I can't really complain too much). Not even a close second, but we are thankful for the telephone. ;)
Thanks so much for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
