Fathers Day Card

Hello all...

   You all know I am not into making cards for men, BUT.... it is Fathers Day this weekend, and since my daddy is gone, I made a card for my hubby.  I used the sketch at http://clpchallenge.blogspot.com/ again, my second entry to this challenge (only 2 allowed). I am pretty happy with the results, considering it is only my second card ever for a man. PLEASE, I value your opinion, so let me have it.... ok, funny story.... my husband comes into my craft room ALL THE TIME, to chit chat, get an answer, for a kiss, but he never and I mean never pays attention to what I am doing unless I ask for his input....so while I was making this card for him, he comes in and I didnt give it a thought. We chatted a few minutes and before he leaves he says to me, "Hey, I like that one, why dont you add some starfish, and maybe a seashell". I said well because I was thinking he was lake fishing... he says,"NOOOooooo, put him on the ocean and put this and this" (as he gets starfish and seashells from my container).  I put them on and he says,"No" and points to somewhere else..... I laughed and said, this card is for you, you wanna make it? We both laughed and he said ,"Honey, I just love it when you win stuff, so I wanted to help since it was a card for a man." He's so sweet.... now I gotta make him another card!!!!!!!

I used a Mo's Digital Pencil Image
Copics were my medium
Tim Holtz Cardstock
Paper Studio Papers
Burlap ribbon
and other misc goodies from my stash





I will be entering these challenges:

  36. Wow, if this is only your second masculine card, I can't wait to see how your next one looks! It is a great card!! I would not make him another one, this one you did "together" that is so special, a memory you wanna treasure. My DH sometimes does the same thing, he helps me out when I am in doubt, most of the time I love that, he is usually right!
