I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

One down, two to go!

Good morning! Is everyone looking forward to the weekend as much as I am? We're supposed to have temps in the 80s & plenty of sun, so I think I'm sunning my pale, pasty self this weekend. I need some color! *LOL*

I made a card yesterday that I wanted to share with you. I need to make two more for Father's Day then I'm good to go. I wanted this one to be clean & simple...no fuss, just like the man I'm sending it to.
This is a 4.5x6.5 pre-made card base with distressed green paper from My Mind's Eye; distressed Striped paper also from My Mind's Eye; "Love You" stamp is from Studio G; chipboard, colored with YR04 COPIC marker is from Best Occasions by WalMart. Inside, I used a leftover strip of green stamped with the "Love You" stamp & punched down one side with the scalloped border punch from SU.
Had a bit of the striped paper left, so I used it on the envelope flap. This card is going to my "dad by heart" - Daddy Carl means the world to me & even though I didn't marry one of his sons as he'd hoped, he doesn't hold that against me. *LOL* He still loves me, calls me every month, & I always feel like I'm part of the family. He's the best & I'm a lucky girl to have him in my life!Well, it's early out day for my boys & I've got to get these other cards made, along with the laundry that comes from raising males, so that translates to tons of things to do & NO TIME to do it in! *LOL* Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
