I decided to do a quick post this a.m. I created a card this morning for the IS185 challenge and the LSC225 International Flair Challenge at SC. I am a little behind and needed a Father's Day card for Scott before tomorrow. I have so much to do today to prepare for the 30 people staying at the house next weekend and I am not sure what the day will hold with the rain we are having yet again. I am prepared for more water clean up in our basement. The sump pump and broom are standing by. So.... this quick card was perfect. NO STAMPING! on this one. I typed the "Happy Father's Day sentiment in Dutch. Scott is Norwegian and I come from a Dutch Background. My parents both immigrated from the Netherlands. I have a lot of Dutch traditions but rarely speak Dutch so I am sure Scott will laugh at this one! I know my daughter did. My image panel and colors were inspired by this pair of slippers. What a fun site of baby shoes and slippers! Too cute!!

Card Recipe
Paper: Flock Together, Very Vanilla, and Bitter Chocolate Bazzill
Accessories: Allegro Embossing Folder, HodgePodge hardware, little leaves Sizzlit, notes brad, Spiral and Scalloped Border Punch, sewing machine, Offray Chocolate ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a fantastic weekend and all the guys have a special Father's Day! GOEDE DAG! (Good Day!)

I'm impressed that there is no stamping. But you still managed to get a lot of detail in with the embossing and stitiching.

Chris said...
