Happy Father's Day!!

I had to share this with you. I took a card makers quiz over on FaceBook a couple days ago and was deemed to be a "Simple Susie" with the following description:

Each card you make is so beautifully simple – sometimes it’s just your perfect placement of a stamped image, your color selections, or the clean and simple lines in your design. The elegance of your work is in not overdoing it! Your cards would be particularly loved by men because of their lack of foo-foo….so you might want to consider making some for deployed heroes!

I love this description!  It's definitely me! But now on with my card.  This is my Father's Day card for my dad.  We're taking him out to a nice steak house in Tucson, AZ called the Silver Saddle.

I made a Multi-Fold card using paper with a golf theme.  My dad plays golf as does my brother, nephew, and stepson. I used 2 retired stamp sets, Vintage Golf and Fore!  My Scor-Pal gets a bit of a work out when I do this card!

I know it says "birthday" but I wasn't sure when I was going to post this and, since dad is on FaceBook and my  posts show up there, I did the card this way.  I changed the center greeting to Happy Father's Day using my Trendy Greetings stamp set. All images were stamped with Noir PH ink and colored with PrismaColor pencils.

Here you can see that I popped the golf balls. It really added dimension to the card (like it didn't already have that!).  I am posting this later in the day to make sure dad won't see this before we give it to him.

Are you doing something special for your dad or hubby today?  I even sent cards to our sons but Matt, who is not married, got a Happy Guy's card.  He's got a girlfriend and I hope they get married one of these days...
