Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to those who bring so much love and joy to our lives!

The first card today is one I made for my kids to give to my dad.  This week's CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers was "Things That Fly".  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use PTI's "Fly Away" set. I like how versatile the banner is...there's several sentiments that are included in the set, or you can opt to write you own like I did.

And here's this week's Mojo Monday challenge.  I really liked this sketch - it evoked a lot of ideas out of me which I hope I can translate into an actual card.  Have you ever had those ideas/images in your head...ya know, the ones that seems like "the" perfect design, but when you try bring those ideas to life, it's not anything like you imagine...yeah, me too.  Hopefully, all these ideas I have will come out exactly as I picture it.

Before I sign off, I thought I share a little poem in honor of Father's Day...

"Life Lessons "
You may have thought I didn’t see, or that I hadn’t heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me, but I got every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all, and that we’d grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything, it’s written on my heart.
Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be the person I am today;
You built a strong foundation, no one can take away.
I’ve grown up with your values, and I’m very glad I did;
So here’s to you, dear father, from your forever grateful kid.
