Happy Father's Day!

Well, it's Father's Day! I'm a VERY lucky gal! I have a wonderful dad and a wonderful father-in-law too!!!! Not many people are blessed with both!!! I'm also so lucky that they even like each other! We get together and play cards, or go on trips, or just hang out in the backyard and everyone gets along so well - it puts a huge smile on our faces!!!!

Today I'm posting both Father's Day Cards I made. First is for my dad, Dominick. He's a big fisherman. Loves to fish - always has as long as I can remember. I remember going out on the boat as a young girl to fish with him. Now when we visit my parents in the winter in FL, he's out there fishing every day! So, it's only appropriate that I made a card w/ fish on it!

I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch# 143 for my layout. I grabbed my Impression Obsession stamp and stamped it out twice. I cut the first one with my Nestabilities scallop circle. I colored up both images with prisma pencils and gamsol. I added glitter to the bubbles and clear embossing pen to the waves. I cut out the second image of just the fish and popped him up. I used the Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder for the background and then stamped the sentiment with Martha Stewart letters.

Here's a picture of my dad and I from last week :)


For my father-in-law's card, I used a new stamp image from Mo Manning through Stamping Bella. My father-in -aw has a garden in his yard and is trying to grow tomatoes - so I thought this image would make a nice Father's Day Card. I used the Sweet Spot Sketch #60 for the layout. I used my Cuttlebug circle embossing die for the background. Colored the image in prisma pencils and gamsol and added a MFT sentiment and gardening tool. I had some pepper ribbon and thought I'd use that for the gardening theme and lastly a watering can button!

Here's a picture of my Father-in-law, Skip, and me at a 5k race in April. No, he's not in the witness protection program - it was just freezing that day down by the water, so he was all bundled up!

So, I'm sending out HUGE Father's Day love to my two dads today! I love you both :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
