Happy Father's Day - take #2


A couple of weeks ago, I posted a card that I had made to send to my dad for Father's Day.  A friend wanted to buy it, so I sold it and thought, "I have lots of time to make another."  Today I suddenly realized I'd better get one made and in the mail if I hope to get it to him on time!!   [My mother's Mother's Day card was late, so should his be late, too?? :) ]

Many challenges have father's day as the theme so it was easy to find inspiration.  It didn't take too long to make and I'm thankful as I don't have much energy because I'm trying to recover from a miserable cold!!

Here it is...

 

I used the same image as last time because he really can fix just about anything!!

Supplies...
~7 Gysies DP
~Doodle Pantry precolored Handy Ants image and Doodle Pantry Handy Birdie sentiment
~Nestabilities Large and Small Label dies (My Cuttlebug really gave me a hard time!  I hope it's not ready to die!!!!)

~letter brads from ???  (I've had them FOREVER!!)

Fabulous card. I've done that too....sale a card I needed and then not having another when event is due so I rush around. Good for you. The problem I'm now having is no one in the family will give me a card. They say they can't make cards and nothing is going to be as cute as home made so they stopped trying. Isn't that sad...:( oh well...haha

Jennifer said...

This is so great for a manly card! Love the embossed design papers!
