Happy Father's Day

Hello Blogger Friends! It's Sunday and we are celebrating Father's Day. My hubby is out cutting the grass (his choice) and then plans to spend the later afternoon and evening watching the US Open. It's being held near Seattle so that's a 3 hour time difference.
Our son here in Pittsburgh just returned from their trip last night and Ethan has a baseball game today. So we probably won't see them until later on in the week. And our son in California will call with his Father's Day wishes. We get to see them in another month. They are coming to Pittsburgh for our family reunion.
We returned Apollo, my son's dog, yesterday. He was so excited to see his family once again. It is a lot of work taking care of a dog if you don't have one. But, this morning I actually missed having him  here with us.
Now onto my card for today. This is one that I made for a friend who asked if I had any extra cards. She wanted one for her hubby, Dad and Father-in-law. I had only 2 extra ones so I put this one together for her. It is a Clean and simple design but I liked how it turned out.
This is a mainly Stampin'-Up only card. I don't make many of those but the other 2 I gave Kendra were this color scheme so I was trying to keep things somewhat similar. The card base is blackberry bliss and the designer paper is from the "Moonlight" collection.
My flag is cut in hello honey cardstock and I used a MFT die. My circle is embossed with the Stampin'-Up "on point" folder.
The sentiment is the stamp set that was included in the April Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin'-Up. I have been getting those kits for a year now and I can say that I have loved every one of them.
To complete my card I added some extra thick bakers twine in blackberry bliss. This was part of an in-color accessory pack offered by Stampin'-Up during sale-a-bration this year.
Time to finish this post and start my hubby's Father's Day dinner.  My neighbor just sent over a big pot of homemade marinara sauce. It is really delicious. So I am going to make some chicken parmesan, a potato-kale casserole and a tossed salad. We have lots of garden lettuce growing. So until next time.........God bless.
