~Best Dad Ever~

Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today is Father's Day, and we spent it with my son and family. We had a delicious dinner and just enjoyed each other's company.
My daughter-in-law grilled flank steak that she marinated in some delicious herbs and olive oil. She made a pasta dish with red potatoes and green beans that my hubby and son really like.
I made a tossed salad and some baby back ribs and that was our dinner. For dessert she made a rhubarb and cream pie. It was so yummy and there was none left between the 7 of us.
We brought Ethan(youngest grandson) back here to spend the night and enjoy the day with us tomorrow.
Now onto my card for today. I made this one for a friend of mine who wanted to give it to her hubby for Father's Day. I was looking though my stamps and saw this Waltzingmouse "man of the hour" set. It has some really great sentiments. When I saw this one my creative thoughts started flowing and I came up with the idea for this card.
I pulled out my PaperTrey Ink holiday home stamp set and dies for the houses. I stamped them in red, choc chip and old olive.  The rolling hills is a die also from PaperTrey Ink. My MFT dies cut the sun, clouds and arrow. Stamped my sentiment in choc chip ink.
And that is my card for today. So until next time.......God bless.
