another card for Dad

Actually, this is grandpa's card. I used another retired stamp set that I just love because it's so vintage and masculine. The card is made to resemble a vintage photo album - it's a pretty neat design and I'm sure I copied it from somewhere but I can't remember where!

If you are local, our monthly GNO will be Friday night. It's just a great gathering of ladies who craft, or just want to get out of the house for a few hours. You can scrapbook, stamp, crochet, bead, sew (yes, some have brought their machines :), organize your coupons ... or just sit and chat. We have a nice time, and we'd love to have you join us. Message me for details ---> info in the side bar.

happy stampin'

the cat drug me in...

Not really, but that's kind of how I feel after not blogging for soooo long. I hope you can overlook my absence. Our family went through a little change when I started working full-time, then a friend of my son's moved in for a few months (ok, 5 months) and by the time I found a new routine, there just wasn't much time for the ol' bloggity. I'm not promising that I will be posting as regularly as I once did considering "the job" takes up a good bit of my creative time, but I am testing the waters...

Today I have a Father's Day card to share that was quick and easy - I'm saving the more complicated card for the next post (you know, sort of like a cliffhanger ... teehee).

I used a retired stamp set from Stampin' Up and papers I had left over from another project. The main image is stamped in black, then Ranger Distress Inks were applied using felt. It made a nice Father's Day card for my husband today.
