Time to think about Father’s Day

31 May

Today I have made an adorable card for my dad.  

Although I share no blood relation with him, he is the greatest dad on earth to me.

Unselfish, giving, loving, you name it, that is him.

After my mom died he did not need to keep up the dad role to me, like I said he is not my birth father.  He is not even my adopted father as we never proceeded with him adopting me when he married my mom.  I was 11 years old at the time. 

Short story, he is still there for me.  He still takes more responsibility of me and my kids than I feel I deserve sometimes.

My mom was an AVID stamper.  She loved making cards.

I used a combination of chalks and Pearlescent Water Color Paint.  

The paint gives the seals a shimmery look.

I used the phrase as the beginning of my sentiment..

 and then just added some mini stickers to spell out the word DAD.

I added some Dew Drops around the front to add a special touch. 

I really love the way this turned out.

 I have to thank my MUSE for this week.  (Secret here, she is OFTEN my muse!!)

Thank you Christina for letting my know how fun these TENT cards are to make.  

You can visit Christina at:


She is an EXTREME card maker, meaning her cards are usually intricate and 3-d magical of some sort!

Also thank you Sweet Stamps.com.  I love being part of their DT.  What an amazing group of women.  The stamps over at SWEET STAMPS.COM could not be more fun to work with.

I hope you will visit the DT over at SWEET STAMPS BLOG and join us in this week challenge, which to me is a slam dunk EASY PEASY challenge. I will be back later this week with some more fun, so come back and visit:)  Have a great day!

    What a gorgeous card. The seals really look like they are in the ocean basking on the ice. Beautiful coloring and awesome design.
