Even though my own dear father passed away over 25 years ago, there are still lots of fathers in my life.  And I had lots of fun this past week making them all cards for Father’s Day.

This first card is for my father-in-law.


After coloring the buck image with a marker, I took a rag and dabbed a bit of the ink off here and there.  Thought this might give the image a furry look.


Hm-m-m, not sure what I think about it.  Maybe it’s just a matter of a little more practice to get the desired look?

The next two cards are for my hubby, one from me and one from our 18 year old son.



This is such a funny stamp, and I thought it was perfect for a Father’s Day card.


The last two cards are for my married sons who have, between the two of them, blessed me with three beautiful granddaughters.

Gary doesn’t think a family is complete without a dog.  This one is for him.


And this one is for Jeff who trailered away my motorcycles awhile back.  I thought he would get a kick out of this little scene.


When stamping the sentiment on the card, the word “son” was not as straight as I wanted it.  So, I made a little banner and adhered it over the original word.  The banner is raised slightly in the center with an adhesive foam dot.  I actually like it better.  So fun when that happens!


Wishing ALL the dads out there a happy Father’s Day tomorrow!
