Hello! Sorry for my lack of posts the last couple of days or visits to your blogs...I now have the horrible flu my husband and daughters have been struggling with for the last two plus weeks and am down and out with a fever etc. I have so much to share with you this week and I am so glad I worked ahead and did not procrastinate or I would have been in big trouble for sure!! I have posts and blog hop posts scheduled for each day this week.
I am so excited about this Perfect Presentations template from
Leigh Ann Baird!!! She has outdone herself once again, and produced a totally awesome and flawless design which I think is awesome for Father's Day!! It is called the Top Notch box!
To me it was perfect for making a tux for a gift for Father's Day. I used black glitter paper and red ribbon for the tie. The sentiment is a sneak peak of one of the awesome sentiments from Our Daily Bread Designs - Happy Father's Day (to be release on April 1). I just love the font....I framed it with the Fancy Tags die from Spellbinders. I am packing with my husband Scott's favorite chocolate....Lindt.
For more examples on the Top Notch Box, please visit my talented dt sisters at Perfect Presentations:

* Harriet
* Kerri * Rebecca

Thanks for stopping by...for my first post for the day which displays this card:

using Whimsy's Splashy Sabrina and the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge, please scroll down to the next post. The Priscillastyle's 6 X 6 envelope template was used for it.

I also have blog candy that I am offering my followers as a way of saying thank you. If you have not yet signed up for it, you can click here.

Thanks for stopping by and for your much appreciated comments! Have a great day!
