Father's Day Card

It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.

I made this card for my husband who is an amazing father!  My children are so blessed they have a loving, generous, funny, and cheerful dad who is able to blend the roles of fatherhood and friend effortlessly.  My husband is my inspiration.  One would never guess that he didn't grow up with a father or has been on his own since the tender age of 15. He is very grounded, easy going, and always puts our needs ahead of his own. One would think he had a remarkable dad as a role model.  I love that our children are growing up in a happy home with a dad who takes a keen interest in their lives and guides their moral values.  I can only hope that the  boys will be as great a father as their daddy.

The image of dad is from The Graphics Fairy's  May 23, 2012 post of Retro Father's Day Images.
God bless Karen for being so generous with her time and blog. I am so grateful for her free graphics.  
I took the image of the man being served breakfast and cropped it until I got his image of the head.  The expression is just perfect.

I used Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge for "daddyo".
Chocolate Crinkle Cookies for daddy.
The tool box card sings a song about Dad can fix anything with duct tape.

Supplies:  My Mind's Eye Life Journaling Sheet #1, Core dinations Pine Needles Distressed paper, Bottle Cap Stickers, Jolee's Boutique dimensional trophy sticker, 7 gypsies Little Tags, Cricut cartridge Nifty Fifties, Eyelet Outlet eyeglasses, Stickles Platinum, and I cut one crown from Jolee's Boutique crown border sticker.

  4. Hi what a lovely card you did a fab job. Your husband sounds like a sweet guy. Thanks for your comments on my blog jollyjillys. I'm now following you as well

  5. These are awesome father's day cards! I'm sure any dad would love these, especially made by all you guys!

    PS- I took French too! I just didn't want to follow the herd and take Spanish! I tried to brush my French back up before the trip, but Spanish would definitely be more useful... especially now that I'm teaching! Oh well! C'est la vie!
