Happy Father's Day!!!



Happy Father's Day to all the men who put up with....I mean, support us in our crafty ventures!!! I hope you are all having a wonderfully special day with the men in your lives!!

Yesterday my parents travelled up to spend the afternoon with us. Actually they spent most of the afternoon helping us put up our pool. We got one of those big round blue ones.....hopefully I will have some pictures soon to show you. We had one last year but this year's is BIGGER!! It is 16 feet in diameter and pretty deep...I don't know how deep yet, I haven't been in it. It's still filling up and mighty cold, since the water is coming straight out of the tap!! Brrr!! But it won't take long to warm up in this heat!!

Anyhoo........since I wouldn't be seeing my Dad today, I gave him this card and his present yesterday!! Back in January my Dad was inducted into the sports Hall of Fame in my hometown...in fact, his whole soccer team was. He was on the championship team when they won in 1975 and so there was a fantastic evening with the whole team, some celebrities and of course, us, his ever-lovin' family!! We took tons of photos and I kept all the programs, nametags, tickets etc. to make him an album of the big event!! So yesterday I gave him the 6x6 album and he LOVED it!! He was really touched, I think and said he couldn't wait to show 'the guys'!

This is the card I made to go with it. The soccer ball patterned paper matches some of the pp I used in the album. The little golf shirt pattern I got off of Cambria's blog and it was super easy!! I used the Palette of Prints patterned paper and it ended up looking JUST LIKE the golf shirt he happened to be wearing yesterday!! It was too funny!! I used Marigold Morning for the card base, the pp on the bottom and stamped my sentiment in black. Then I used some Basic Black for a base for the shirt and Cuttlebugged it with my new Bubbles embossing folder. I added some SU brads in the corners and some black gingham ribbon!!

Okay, off to play outside and gaze at my new pool!! Have a wonderful day!!
