Happy (Belated) Father's Day

Just in case you're curious, the "thank you" card was for my hubby (he's a fantastic father to our DD) & what better way to remind him of that than with a heart-felt thank you from me :) The beautiful tree image is from THIS DD set , stamped with brown StaZon ink onto vellum. I added the cb heart, some ribbon & got my trusty sewing machine out for a spin :) The sentiment is from THIS DD set

The "fine suit" card is for a friend, the image from THIS DD set was stamped onto vellum, layered to cream cs, & trimmed with some deckle-edged scissors. I added some tiny staples, & went around the edge with my fingernail pulling back on thre vellum for a bit of added texture. The sentiment was stamped onto vellum, & highlighted the area by going over the reverse side of the image with a white wc pencil.

The Car card was for my own dad, I wanted something simple & I loved the way this card turned out. Some old pp (I think its Ink Boutique??), a stamped image from THIS DD set, a little Distress ink, some lovely velvet ribbon & a tiny cb heart :)

That's all for today, folks, enjoy your week, & don't forget to thank the fathers in your lives, after all, we wouldn't be here without them!
