Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

We started our morning with the girls helping their Dad tear into the presents they bought at the school Father's Day stall, and with a continental breakfast that they cooked for him. We later had lunch with our dads and families at a local club, where our parents spent the afternoon playing the poker machines, something they love.

I bought my Dad and my Father-in-Law an obligatory hefty Scratchies pack each and accompanied them with these cards...


The Language of Friendship is such an appropriate stamp set for both our dads as they both love birds. My Dad used to breed and show canaries many, many years ago, and we always seemed to have pet budgies. My Father-in-Law currently has a few cockatiels.

The colours I used were Crumb Cake, Whisper White, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Always Artichoke. The sentiment is from Afterthoughts. The bird and branch were cut with the Two Step Bird Punch.

 They are very simple cards but I'm happy with them.

Well, whatever you did to celebrate today, I hope it was special in every way.

Take care.
