Happy Father's Day!

There are way too many emotions I'm feeling today. I'm celebrating my wonderful hubby who is an excellent father to our 2 sons....and celebrating his dad who raised his son to be an incredible man. I'm remembering and missing my dad, enjoying sweet memories of happy times with him.
I made a photo card for Al for Father's Day, he loved the card and enjoyed reading the lengthy missive I wrote on the inside. Of course today is also my birthday, so wonderful guy that he is, he made a fantastic breakfast and gave me a beautiful card, lovingly chosen at the neighborhood CVS.

 I created the card completely in Publisher using scanned papers and free fonts I found recently.

For my birthday I amassed quite a collection of loot. I spent a day filling in for Linda at Stamp Fever recently and was compensated with Hero Arts Stamps. Here's my new stamps....

I'll be digging to these this week, I have some class samples to make so I will be looking to you all for your creative inspiration. I ordered some stamps and paper from Addicted to Rubberstamps and that order came in this week too...

....including a Penny Black sheet music background stamp, a Unity stamp set Tiny Trinity and a collection of Sassafras 6x6 paper packs in Nerdy Bird, Apple Jack and Cherry Delicious that came with the Stitchery clear stamp set. I also ordered from Unity the Melody Ross Brave Girl stamp set.  It's quite obvious I'm going to be a busy stamper for the foreseeable future.
Thought for the Day: In honor of the wonderful men in my life who exemplify God's standard for fathers.... Ephesians 6:1-4 "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother-which is the first commandment with a promise-that it may go well with you and that you my enjoy long life on the earth. Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."

blessings to all the dads out there and to all who are celebrating their dads today!
PS-Congrats to the Kiwis of New Zealand...excellent World Cup match today!
