Father's Day Truck

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Pecan

Happy Father's Day to every Dad, Grandpa, and Uncle out there! My life has been so very blessed in that not only did I have a most amazing father, but Dave is a wonderful father to our sons. he is also the best husband I could ever ask for. :)

This is the card I made for Dave for me to give him for Father's Day. I tried to match the coloring to the truck he drives out at Camp. I had Tyler take a photo and send it to me so I could match it up as best I could.

papers are from the Basic Grey Hipster collection, image is by Tiddly Inks, flower is Petaloo, tab punch is Jenni Bowlin, main die is Spellbinders. I added a few highlights with my clear spica gel pen. faux stitching is added with a white gel pen, and woodgrain bg stamp on card base is by SU!

I'll be back shortly to add some info about my Birthday blog candy. one item that will be part of the giveaway is this fun digi set by Faith at From the Heart Stamps - 'French Mustache Birdbrain.'  see you soon! :)
