Happy Father's Day!

Hope you are having a great day celebrating with your husband, father or significant other! I got cards out in the mail late this year - for some strange reason I was thinking Father's Day was next weekend. So my cards were done, but just not mailed in time. argh...

I did whip out a quick Father's Day card for my husband...since his birthday was just Thursday, the celebrations are kind of close together and he gets short change. But I found a great photo cube at AC Moore and I filled it with pictures of the kids and some shots of our favorite vacations. I think he'll like it! To go along with that "happy scene" I was setting for him, I used a retired stamp set that I still love. The papers are normally featured with Christmas stamps but this Amelia paper pack is perfect for masculine and vintage cards. It's great!

Card Materials:
Stamps: Light the Path (retired), dad from current GWP
Accessories: Amelia Soar with it Collection and cardstock, eyelets from our hardware packets, twine, pop dots

I don't normally do square cards but this is quite large at 5 1/2 by 5 1/2. I played along with the sketch over on Friday's Sketchers - I'm the sponsor this week! You really need to see some of the cards over there - the design team is awesome! The sketch was posted on Friday and you can play along until next week.
