Happy Father's Day...

Today has been a very nice day, hanging out in the back yard with my Dad and my the boys and wives, made delicious burgers with all the fixin's and then roasted marshmallows on the leftover coals.

My Dad is a very special man, he Chose to be my Dad and has never looked back. He has been there for me through so much! He gives selflessly of himself and yet teaches me every day what it is to be self sufficient. I am so glad my Dad is my Dad!

Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers, Dads, Step-Dads, Uncles and men who take the time to BE for a child, it is the most important gift a man can give!

I used this week's Cupcake Inspiration as a jumping off point for this card, Love Turquoise and Brown together and one of the flowers kind of looked like a star to me so I went from there...

The saying on the inside was printed from my computer, I added a touch to the usual quote...

Stamps: Happy Everything, Swirl Stars (Verve)
Paper: Figgy Pudding (Basic Grey,) Vintage Cream (PTI)
Ink: Printer, Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Misc: MSCrafts ZigZag Edger, Twill Ribbon, Button, Scrapper's Floss
