Happy Father's Day

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.  I am out in San Francisco with my sweet granddaughter Phoenix Daisy.

It's another short visit and again I have left my hubby behind to take care of business back in Pittsburgh. This is the card that I made him for Fathers Day.

He subscribes to my blog and of course I will tell him when we talk today, but I want to say it here as well. Happy Fathers Day honey-you are a true gift to our sons, daughters-in-law, grandsons and granddaughter.

The sentiment on this card is so perfect for my husband. It speaks volumes about who he is as a man. It is from the Waltzingmouse set "man of the hour". As soon as I saw this set I bought it immediately. I love all the sentiments that are included in it.

The layout on my card is an older MFT Wednesday sketch. The designer paper is Stampin-Up's "good morning sunshine" collection. Kiwi kiss, not quite navy and basic gray are my card colors. I used a couple of Spellbinders dies-labels 4 and lacey rectangles and the chevrons are cut from an MFT die. I finished my card by adding some kiwi kiss ribbon.

That's it for me for this post. So until next time........God bless.
