Another card today in celebration of fathers day.....hope all those fathers out there are taking it easy, feet up watching sport on TV.....just like any other day really lol, I know thats not fair they do deserve a rest, For todays card I have used a digi download and cannot for the life of me remember where I got it from....memory like a goldfish, if I remember I'll let you know. I cut up the paper in squares and then mounted them, the word dad is part of the download which I added glossy accents to the top of the letters for added dimension. The image is from B Line stamps, I inked the background with Weathered wood and stamped the image with Stormy Sky, added some silver embossing to the edges and then swiped black around the edge as well. Tried to keep it simple with a vintage feel.

Allsorts....sketch, altered it slightly by adding the word dad underneath the squares.
Sweet Stampin.......Clean and simple.
Praire Fairy.....Dad birthday or Fathers Day.
Raise The Bar......Fathers Day.
Polka Doodles.....Male Card.
Crafty Cardmaker.....Cards for men.
