Fathers Day

I had a hard time making this Father's day card for my Father in law, knowing that I wouldn't be making one for my Dad this year.  I miss my Dad so much.



Hot off the Press -- Instant card art for the sentiment tag and the tag I added Dad too.
K&co. -- Paper background
Graphic 45 -- Once upon time paper (green dotted paper)
Memory Box-- Parker Upper case alphabet die set (dad)
Spellbinders-- Labels Twenty-two and Classic Rectangles Lg dies
Michaels-- Screw Brads
Burlap

I am sore all over we spent the morning changing around our flowers and planting new ones, we had to tear out two bushes that bag worms ruined.  My strawberries are coming in quicker than I can deal with them and I have my first flowers on my green pepper plants!!  I love to watch things grow. 

I also have a new grand furbaby, my daughter and son in law adopted a kitten the other day, when I get a good picture I will have to post it, wish they were closer, but it sounds like if they are able to come and visit us in August they will be bringing her along :)

Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing weekend,
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie

Your first Father's Day without a father is hard and I'm sorry about that. You are kind and thoughtful to make this nice card for your FIL, regardless. You sound very busy in the garden. No strawberries for me this year, but I'm hoping for a good tomato crop.
