This handmade book is sure to melt the heart of any father who receives it. Each page features loving thoughts by the child or children about their dad, like; I know my dad loves me when… Each page also has room for photos that will bring back special memories for dad. And just to make sure that dad feels extra special, give him a gift card to his favorite place. When it's given in this matching gift card holder, he will know just how special he is on his special day!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
Well by now you've probably seen the retiring stamp set and accessories lists! Every year a few of my favorite stamp sets retire and this is one of them. The Happiest Birthday Wishes hostess stamp set. It's a great birthday greeting set and I use it a lot because I make a lot of birthday cards! Although I won't be able to demonstrate with this set after it retires, I will keep it for my own personal use as the birthday greetings in this set are so nice and versatile!
I used Peach Parfait, Wild Wasabi and Regal Rose Stampin' Write Markers to color in the image.
The Cupcake Builder punch made it easy to make this cute cupcake too.
Over on my Sisters in Stamping blog this week, we're sharing cards or projects made using stamp sets and/or other items that are on the retiring lists. Take a look and remember if you want anything on the lists, you have until May 31st (or while supplies last with the accessories), to purchase from the current catalog. Our new catalog will be coming out June 1st!
Have a great weekend!
