Happy Dad's Day!


Hi there everyone!  I can't believe it's been almost a week since I last posted!  Summer is getting in the way, I tell you!! 

Well, I sat down this weekend to stamp a couple Father's Day Cards for my Dad and my FIL.  I forgot to snap a pic of my Dad's card, but this is the card I made for my AWESOME Father-in-law!  If you're a regular reader of my blog then you know that my in-laws really love the cards I make them!  My MIL will keep her birthday card out for months!  Love that!  Both of my brothers-in-law will do the same!

Anywho....I used two Verve sets on this card.  The DAD is from Protector and the Happy Father's Day is from Father Figure.  I used these same patterned papers on another card I made awhile back and thought they would be perfect for this card.  I cut out each letter from Dad and popped it up on foam tape!  LOVE dimension on a card.  The sponging was done with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  The dp is October Afternoon Report Card.

Also, Verve has another release this week on Friday, June 25th!  Sneak peeks start this Wednesday on the Verve Blog!  You don't want to miss this release!!  Good stuff comin' your way!

I'll see you Tuesday with Mercy's new sketch!  Until then, my friends! 

Thanks for stopping by!
