Happy Father's Day!

I made this card for my husband this morning for Father's Day. We have 2 sick little ones....Bowman, our almost 3 year old, has been running a fever and feeling cruddy for 2 days now and Levi, our 15 month old, woke up puking this morning!! Happy Father's Day, Huh??? Needless to say, we missed church this morning and I haven't had much time to get a card made this weekend, because Bowman has been very clingy! Lindey, our 13 year old, watched the little ones this morning , which was a feat in itself, because neither one wants to be put down, so I could at least get a card made.

Supplies:

Stamps: Canvas Background
Cardstock: White, Coral, Celery, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Versamark
Other: Various ribbons, silver brads, red line sticky tape

I stamped the coral, celery, and cocoa cardstocks with the canvas and versamark to give it a little bit of a fabric look. I evenly spaced 3 silver brads to look like hangers. I tied each piece of ribbon to look like a tie....I actually know how to tie a tie!! I stuck the ties down with super duper sticky tape....that's not the actual name....but it really is super duper sticky, so I like to call it that! The last thing I did was handwrite a sentiment inside.......Your love "ties" our family together! AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!! Ain't I sweet? Hope he likes it!!! To be continued.......Stay tuned!
