Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the great Dad's out there.  I am very lucky to have my Dad who is also a wonderful Papa to his grandchildren and great grandchildren.  

I shared my Dad's Father's Day card a couple of posts back and I have Lloyd's Dad's card to share with you today.  I again used the Open Sea stamp set.  This is such a great stamp set and can be used for so many different occasions.

The ship is embossed used the Pewter Embossing Powder.  I created a port hole using the Fan Fair DSP and dotted versamark on the Island Indigo card stock and again embossed with Pewter Embossing powder.

So, tomorrow, do something with your Dad, for your Dad and if you are unable then remember the wonderful times that you have had with your Dad.

Special Announcement

Coming very soon,  an announcement on my blog of a new program that I am starting.  It will be of interest to those who have little time to craft or want to get started crafting.  If you live in small town Canada and don't have access to a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, this will be for you

Until next time...
