Father's Day

Hey y'all!

So, how about one more card to finish out the week? :o)

My best friend Drew is celebrating his first Father's Day, and I wanted to make sure I sent him a card in honor of this.  I wanted to keep it simple, yet make an impact.  This is what I came up with.

I got this sentiment from last weeks Word Art Wednesday Challenge, but I didn't get the chance to use it.  I printed it on cream cardstock, then inked it while still in my die.  You can't see it in the photo, but I outlined the inside of the die with my clear glitter pen, which gives it a sparkly brown colored frame when combined with the distress ink.  It looks awesome in real life.  I do hope my friend likes his card. 

I've combined the following challenges in my card:

Kaboodle Doodles #175 - For Your Favorite Guy
Papertake Weekly - Hello Boys
Use It Tuesday #57 - Masculine (The patterned paper has been in my stash forever)
ODBDSLC158 - Masculine/Father's Day

Here are a couple pics of Drew and his son.  I was lucky enough to get to see them while I was in Dallas over Memorial Day weekend.  Aren't they both adorbs?!  And yep, I'm pretty sure Shade is going to be a ginger as well, even though he had a full head of black hair when he was born. lol

That's it for me.  I'm off to finish up my week of chaos and then head out for the weekend with my favorite girl.  I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
