Thanks, Dad!

It's Father's Day this Sunday!  I saw this saying on in a magazine, thought it was clever and decided to use it:


The "thanks" is from PS Smarty Pants heat embossed in white.  "Dad" and "Awesome" were cut from PTI cs on the Silhouette with the banner sentiment printed off the computer.  The plaid paper is my new favorite and a gift from Scotland called, A4 Tartan Craft Papers by Southfield.  There are 12 tartan patterns in the pad and I was given two of them - squeee!  I die cut the paper with PTI Scene It: Basic Backer Die, and added a white circle behind it.  The light gray paper and white paper are from my stash and the card base is Paper Studios.
 
Happy Father's Day, everyone, I miss my dad terribly, but I am so grateful for the time we had together.  Right now, moving my mom to a senior apartment, we are going through his things (six years after he passed away).  It brings back a flood of memories!
 
Thanks so much for coming over to visit, have a great day!

  1. This is such a great card Kara, and as usual, I love how you utilise your Silhouette to create the design you have in your head. The red card and sentiment really brings out the red in the lovely tartan paper.
    Hope all goes well with your Mum's move.

    Hugs
