fathers day, another Hallmark holiday, and some nontraditional cards!!

Sunday, June 19, 2016

Happy Dad's Day!  I know these holidays are just "Hallmark holidays," but I feel like we can always use more excuses to slow down and show gratitude to someone that means alot to us, don't you agree?  (And with so much going on in the world today, it is seeming so important to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us).

I'm so lucky to have several amazing guys in my life!  There's my own (one and only) Daddio of course, who is the silliest person I know.  Then, my father-in-law, who is sweet and comforting even though he's always doing a million things.

Also my Grandpa, who has become one of the top influential people in my life, and who shares my love for all things camera-related.  And my other Grandpa, who recently passed, but will always make me smile remembering when he said "It's time to go home!" every time he found me sleeping on the couch during family parties.

And finally, my amazing hubby.  Even though I haven't been able to make him a father to human children, he is THE BEST fur dad in the whole wide world.  Nothing makes my heart happier than to see him rolling around with the furries on the floor.

So yeah...I'm pretty dang lucky!  I created handmade Father's Day cards for all of the wonderful gents in my life.  And since I can't share a post without there being at least a tiny bit of craft-related stuff, here they are!

I wanted to create some very nontraditional Father's Day cards, partly because I have so many general everyday life stamps, and also because I kinda get bored of creating the same things over and over.  I've been watching a ton of crafty videos lately, and was inspired by some old Two Peas videos to create these cards.


This post will also be a part of an upcoming post about "Killing a Kit," a challenge I've given myself, to finish up what I have left of BasicGrey's Hipster collection.  More on that one day soon!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and took time to thank the fathers and dads in your life!
