Father's Day #1

Wow...I'm a bad blogger. It's been almost a month since my last post!

I lost my mojo, and no matter how many beautiful blogs or magazines I looked at, I just didn't feel motivated. It didn't help, either, that I got immersed in the Twilight book series. I went through them in about two weeks. It's been a really long time since I've been into reading like that. If you haven't read it, it's really a great story. I didn't think I'd like it -- it sounded hokey -- but it was soooo good.

Anyhoo...holidays are always a good motivator when I'm in a card funk. Especially if someone's EXPECTING a card, like Father's Day. :-) So I got busy. Well, I guess technically, I thought about it for a long time before I actually sat down to make it. And darn it...I cased a card I found online for this one and now I can't read the watermark. If someone recognizes the layout, I'm happy to provide credit. I guess I need to find another way to store my inspiration.

This one is for my father. Almost everything is Papertrey Ink. I hope he likes it!

Supplies:
Paper: Vintage Cream and Pure Poppy cardstock (PTI), patterned paper from textStyle Hodge Podge pack, chocolate remix
Ink: Chocolate and Ripe Avocado (PTI), Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Inks
Ribbon: American Crafts Brown Classics
Buttons: Chocolate Vintage Button Collection (PTI)
Floss: DMC

Glad to see you back, girlfriend! This card is really cute! I'm sure he's going to love it...especially knowing it's handmade by YOU! :o)
