Happy Father's Day!!

My Dad is the best Dad, Grandpa, and Grandpa Great EVAH!!!!! Happy Father's Day!!

Below is my DH George who is such a wonderful Dad to all our boys (and Holly, too)!!! The DIL's even call him Dad!

Happy Father's Day to all my wonderful boys who are all great Dads, too!!!

I am sooo Blessed to have such wonderful sons...they are all SUPER DADS!!!

The Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast today features ChristyS. She has such a wonderful gallery...sooo many beautiful cards to case!! I love all Christy's AWESOME designs and finally decided to case her beautiful Marine Thanks card. I kept the same layout, similar colors, and nature theme but changed stamps, papers, added the brown matting, and added the ribbon tabs.

The Clear Dollar Stamps Pretty Perches set was used to create this outdoor scene and Mothermark's cloud template was used to create the sky.

Various stamps from the same set were used to create little scenes for the square blocks in the top layer.

The birdhouse and birds on the bottom image were all stamped twice and one set was cut out and popped up with dimensionals.

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Pretty Perches
Paper: White, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, SU Sweet Slumber Specialty dp
Ink: Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Ribbon, Dimensionals

Three of my Grandchildren came to visit last week...they went home this morning and boy is the house quiet!!!! We had such a fun and busy week.....we went swimming, to a movie, out to eat, shopping, visiting,...whew!!

This is Autumn who spent the majority of her time in Grandma's craft room.

Cole and Cody had a great time....they kept me running!!!

With it so hot outside, the sprinkler is the best place to be!!

Thanks for visiting and I hope you all have a great Father's Day with the special men in your life!!!
