Happy Father's Day

So miss my loving dad--the world is just not the same without him.  Back from camping just in time to work the weekend & didn't get a card done for hubby before we left.  Since Fritz gave me a Mother's Day card, I wasn't going to bed until I made a card for him.  It's not very traditional, but I wanted to join in the PTI MIM challenge which required the use of re-inkers. Since I only have a few dye ones (blue, purple & red), my leaves are blue & purple.  Good thing hubby actually likes those colors!  The greeting is an old stamp from a local company no longer in business & the PTI stamps & die are Turning a New Leaf & Harvest Berries. A little hard to see, but I used the inlaid die technique.
We had great camping weather & took a couple day trips including one to check out this pretty lake. Thanks for coming by.  I'll catch up on blogs soon.

  27. My sweet friend, I am light years behind in commenting, and I'm blaming everything from work to DT duties to 'whatever'! Hectic and disorganized: that's me! And our house: disarray central! Gahh...anyway, even though I'm late, I'm starting here with a WOW in response to this card! Colours, images, layout: I know your husband loved it, as do I! And how thoughtful of Fritz to have inspired you to create it *grin*! The photo of the guys in your life: fabulous!! Big hugs~c
