~#1 DAD~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. Well, I think I am over my bout with bronchitis- finally. This is the first morning in 2 weeks that I felt good when I woke up. Yay for me! The antibiotics are doing their work. 
Yesterday, my daughter-in-law came for a visit and brought their dog. They are going to the beach for a week, and I will be taking care of him. We took him out for a walk to see how I could handle him. That went ok. He has a lot of energy and I hope our week together goes well.
I didn't want to stay at their house for a week so I hope he acclimates to our house well. He wanted to run in the yard and I would like to let him do that. I will see how that goes after a few days of him being here.
Now onto my card for today. Another one I made for Father's Day.  I wanted to make a card with bowties on it for Father's Day and then I saw the sketch #543 on Splitcoaststampers and thought it would be perfect for my idea.
When I saw the sketch, I thought layers 1 & 2 looked just like the dies I have from MFT Blueprints 18. So I cut my background designer paper with those dies and used Stampin'-Up "kaleidoscope" designer paper . I was after a graphic, masculine look and these papers worked for that.

I made my bowties from the MFT dainty bows die and kaleidoscope designer paper . The #1 and Dad word are cut from the MFT "little numbers and letters dies. Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time........God bless.
card details:
Paper: black, bermuda bay, crushed curry, strawberry slush, kaleidoscope dsp 
Paper Size: A2 
Accessories: MFT Blueprints 18, little numbers & letters, dainty bows, Spellbinders square dies
