Fabulous Friday-Father's Day card


Wow! It is Friday again already! Where in the world did this week go? I have been really busy this week and it just seemed to slip right by.....my pony is trying to abscess and my oldest Lab is having problems. I ran out of hay and ran around trying to find some until the guy can get my order delivered, it's always something isn't it!!??

Enough about that, this week SCH's design team was to make a Father's Day card to share with you. I have old photo of my Dad where he is so young and very snappy looking. I couldn't resist using that photo. I used the Hootin Tootin set to make my card, this is a great set and very versatile. If you are like me, I just cannot pass up something "Texas"!! The paper is from an old Club Scrap kit called Wild, Wild West which I really like, thought it would go great with the "wanted" poster. What do you think, pretty cool??

All of us have paid special attention to our cards, we love sharing with all of you. Head over to the rest of the team and check out their eye candy. Leave us some "love", we all enjoy hearing from you as you visit us!

There is a brand new Freebie at the Shoppe, you are going to love it! It is called "Vintage Tag", the hummingbird is still available as well. Thanks for stopping by, I would love for you to join my group of followers, leave me a comment, head to see some more cards and DON'T forget to go to SCH for your Freebie!!

Donna, it was as if that picture of your dad was positively made for this set!! Wow...it really is perfection. I just love old pictures!

Donna, that am amazing work of art. I LOVE it. That picture of your Dad is fabulous - he looks like an actor! It works so perfectly with this set. I was drooling over the paper and the texture on it, trying to figure out if you ran it through some sort of texture plate or if it came that way. At any rate, it is wonderful. I love the way you created the badge and rope also. Your work is always so amazing and this is another masterpiece!
