Super. Spectacular. Amazing. Happy Father's Day!


Good morning!  I'm blogging live this morning as my friend Amy would say!  Popping in to wish my fabulous hubby and all the other fathers a wonderful Father's Day!  This card was inspired by a Colour Q Challenge several weeks ago.  This is my card for Pat.  I'm so thankful to have a truly amazing husband as a father to our four beautiful boys.  I know we're all super spoiled to have him! 

Yesterday we celebrated Father's Day with the Mangan side of the family at a local park.  Our little niece, Shelby, is very into striking a pose these days.  So..her old sister, Ella, and Pat's dad, PopPop, had to get into the action.

Of course, Nana and Shelby, couldn't be left out either.  I love Shelby's facial expression...her eyes say it all!

PopPop organized the picnic at the same place were Ryan had a game later in the day.  I have to brag on my guy.  Pitched the  last 5 innings of the game...13 strike outs, 1 base on balls and 2 hits.  He was on fire :)  ...and I'm one proud mama.  

I'll be back tomorrow with tons more pictures this week from our weekend get together!  Happy Father's Day!

Very cool to read about everything "live!" Great pics, it looks like you guys are having a lot of fun! This card is awesome, love the effect with the embossing :)

Is it bad that I knew what stamp set you would be featuring just by your title? What a cool card, and cool technique to use with the dies. I hope Pat has a great day today! My boys are really into baseball right now. Unfortunately my schedule and my husband's schedule do not allow for little league, but they really like playing in the yard. Thankfully and knock on wood, no busted windows yet!

What a great Father's Day card Lynn. I love the technique you used with your die cuts. Genius.

Emily (stampingout on SCS) said...

Awesome card, Lynn! How do you use a die to get that "not quite cut" look? I have tried and always cut all the way through my paper! LOL!
Enjoy your day! :)
