Happy Father's Day!

Hello crafty friends!

I've had a super busy week and the boys last day of school was this Thursday! We celebrated our little one's last day of Kindergarten...sniff, sniff...can't believe how fast this school year went!! I'm so happy summer is finally here though...already planning lots of stuff to do with the kiddos! Although, I'm sure by the end of this summer I will be ready for them to go back to

I will make this post quick as I just wanted to say Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful daddy's out there! Hope you get spoiled with lots of hugs and kisses and get to relax and enjoy your special day! My hubby has Sundays off, so he will definitely enjoy his day and make it a lazy one. He works hard, so he deserves it!


Along with this quick post, I have a quickie card to share with you all. I think this is as CAS as I can

I made this for my hubs. I don't usually make cards for guys...I'm just not that great at them. But I kinda like the way this one turned out. I don't think it really matters with guys though...they pretty much like anything, or at least mine

I haven't done much embossing lately. I loved that this stamp had the thick lettering which made it perfect for embossing.

The inside...


SIZE: 4.5 x 5
PAPERS: All cardstock matting is DCWV and DP is Recollections
EMBELLISHMENTS: iRock gems and all other rhinestones, button and string is from stash
TOOLS: EKSuccess Diamond Lace border punch, EKSuccess Scalloped Slim corner punch, iRock heat setting tool and sewing machine
OTHER: 3d Dimensional Foam

Every year I also have my boys make a card for daddy, they love playing with all mommy's "toys" are their adorable cards! :)
