IT"S A DAD CARD!

Hi all!! Well, I had a fabulously successful shoe shopping day and got everything I was looking for and more! I love buying shoes, no worries about your feet having gained weight, lol!!! Today I want to share a dads day card that I made for the Paper Popsicles card challenge this week. This one will go to my father in-law, he will get a kick out of it!! Not to much frill on this one, he is definitely not the ribbon and flowers type, lol!! So, I kept it pretty simple but I still like the way it turned out! The stamp set I used is called And Many Mower out of the Occasions mini and I just love it for guy cards! This set is only available until the end of the month so if it is on your wish list, you better get it ordered!! I did do the inside of this one too since the challenge called for it AND since it is going to my FIL - don't want to give him a naked card *wink* Here is what the inside looks like! I got to use my new punch from the new catty called the Modern Label Punch - I am soooo excited about this new catty, and my wish list is pages long already!! Isn't this a great punch - I can tell I will be using it alot!! Well, I was supposed to do the grocery shopping yesterday but played instead so I am off to do that this morning - heehee!! And, then some laundry and hopefully and afternoon of scrappin' and stampin' - I am trying to fit lots in before my first day of work on Monday as I am sure I will be tired that first week and so I am trying to work ahead!! Enjoy your day - I will be checking out everyone's blogs this afternoon - thanks for stopping by!
