Happy Father's Day

My dad is about as hard to make a card for as he is to shop for.  His hobbies are traveling, shopping and mowing his grass.  He doesn't participate in any of the traditional guy things like golf, watching sports, hunting and fishing.  So I'm stamp-less when it comes to card stuff.  However, as long as I've had this little truck stamp and as many cards as I've made with it, I don't think I've ever done one for him.  (At least I hope not!)  He does have an ancient Ford truck that he loves.

His favorite colors are blue and yellow.  That is one of the fun things about card making is you can cater your card - in this case, the colors - the recipient.  As I wrote in his card, I'm a lucky girl to have grown up in his home and am a lucky woman to still have him in my life.

My dad proudly showing off my mother's daylilies this week.

Hope all the dads in your life have a great weekend.
