Father's Day 2013

 Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!!

Father's Day 2013. None of the children are here  this year to celebrate Father's Day but they did all phone!  I decided to make hubby a card and cook him a nice dinner.  I've made a rhubarb and strawberry pie  and he will be  getting chicken, mashed potatoes and some veggies to go with it! He is a meat and potatoes guy so this is what he wants, just something basic and tasty! Who said  you need kids to celebrate it with:O)! He loved the card and had a good laugh about it. It really isn't that bad in our house but the dog does lie at his feet and if you took the remote  and newspaper away and replaced then with a 'tablet' it starts to fit in a little better :O)

Card Details:
Stamp: Just Inklined  digital stamp  'It's a Man's World'
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps tickets with a hand written Father's Day on it
Colour Medium: Prismacolor Markers

DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #92 Father's Day or Special Male Birthday

My DT Card for Lexi's Creations    Challenge #92 Fathers' Day or Special Male Birthday. The challenge will run June 10th - June 22nd, 2013. 

I no longer have a father or father in law, but I do have a fabulous brother and this card is for him. He is retired and to keep busy mows the greens at a local golf  course and keeps the lawns mowed for his neighbours when they are away in the summer. He lives along the shore of the lake we were raised at and I love to think of him busily mowing away the summer hours , outdoors and near the lake he loves. When I saw this stamp by 'Art Impression' I knew it was the perfect stamp for his birthday. I added the Fairy Dust Crafts butterfly  for an embellishment  It is a male card so did not want to make it too fussy. The sentiment cracks me up! I added the birthday Number digitally as the sentiment was rubber stamped.

Please join us, I'm so looking forward to seeing your creations
 and while there be sure to check out the work by my team mates  at Lexi's Creations, they are a very talented group!!
