A Father's Day Card

Hi everyone!

I've got a card to share tonight. It's the one I created for my hubby who is a wonderful father to our two boys.

I used one of the new Hero Arts stamp sets from their recent, Stamp Your Story release. Love this set! It's called, Brush Strokes. I also used all Hero Arts Shadow Inks. Two were Mid-Tone Inks in Navy and Wet Cement. The third one was Soft Granite.

I then white embossed all the words from another new Hero Arts set called, My Words. The word, "WE" is an important one in our house - so much better than using "I." We've always told our kids we're a team and we work together, so I thought it would be fun to emboss that word many times on the ink splats. I then added several different sentiments that I thought would make the card even more meaningful.

My hubby had a wonderful, relaxing day - he went and played golf this morning then came home to watch the U.S. Open golf tourney on TV. The perfect Father's Day, according to him. :)

I'm missing my own father today. He died almost 37 years ago, when I was in high school, and no matter how many years pass by, I still miss him. He was a big man with a heart to match. He had a laugh that filled the room, a deep faith in God, and he adored being a father to us six kids. I so wish he could have met my two boys!

That's it for me tonight - hope you've all enjoyed your weekend! I'm glad you took the time to stop by - thank you! :)
