Early Father's Day

I'm so happy about this!  My new daughter-in-law to be really scored some points by suggesting that we have an early Father's Day celebration since she and my son will be gone - on their honeymoon - for the next couple of weeks.  And she wanted his children to be able to do the Father's Day thing with him and with the grandparents - myself & my DH before they left.  Isn't that just the sweetest?  I was quite impressed! The kids are just 5, 8 & 10, so I think it's important for them. I'm glad his future new wife thinks so too. :)

They're getting married this Saturday, and as I posted before, I'm heavily involved in preparations so I had to squeeze in this 'quicky' card while I was trying to clean up my stamping area in preparation for our big family barbeque on Sunday! I made this one for my son - no time to make one for the hubster today! (I'll make him one for the real day!) The stamp is from the Digi Shack (Dad's Day Remote) and most of the paper is Stampin' Up, including Kraft. I really combined a variety of techniques on this one...paper piecing, sewing, a little watercolor, some prismacolor pencils for shading & gamsol to blend...oh... and, of course, some sponging around the edges of the deckled edge nestability. It actually went together really fast and I was totally pleased with the result!

I'm sure I won't be posting again with all the festivities going on the next few days. But I'll be back to post another card as soon as I can next week!!

Have a great weekend!
