Father's Day

I created this simple Father's Day card for my grandson to give to his Dad. I used a Silhouette SD electronic cutter to cut the frame and all the letters. The current challenge over at Created by Hand is Father's Day; at Crazy Amigo it's transportation; at Timeless Tuesday, it's using designer papers. This card uses a train stamp from Rubber Cottage and a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design, paired with papers from Daisy D's and Basic Grey. "You're the best" is something the boys say often to their parents, so I know my son-in-law will chuckle when he sees this. The family recently enjoyed a day at a train museum in Ottawa, and sent me some wonderful photos of their fun; hopefully this card will bring some happy memories.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
