It Takes Someone Special to be a Daddy

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

A new challenge begins today over at Pile it On - for or from a father. Father's Day was always a special day for my dad and I. every few years my birthday and Father's Day would land on the same day, so my dad and I would really plan something fun together. for many years it was just the 2 of us as I was growing up, so we were very close.  he's been gone for over 20 years now, and I still miss him every day. some years I still make him a Father's Day card.


the image on my card comes from A Day for Daisies. it's called 'Dancing with Dad'. I remember dancing with my dad like this! I'm sure many of you do as well. :) the sentiment is a freebie from Paper Crafts magazine. I turned it into a tag, adding ric rac and a bread tag stamped with a sentiment from Wordsworth. it is a VERY old stamp, but one of my faves.  papers are Basic Grey Fact, buttons from my stash, burlap trim from May Arts, and linen thread from SU! I added little polka dots to the girl's dress with my white gel pen, while the buttons on his jacket were highlighted with my clear spica gel pen.

btw. A Day for Daisies is also having a new Club Kit blog hop if you want to see some gorgeous projects by their DT. if you leave a comment, you will also have a chance to win the entire kit for free! :)

Great card. I love the sentiment and the way you dotted the little girl's dress. She looks so happy her cheeks are glowing. I always like it when the crafter/designer gives us their insight about the card or creation. Thanks for sharing your precious memories.
