Bee Mine and Happy Father's Day!

Good morning! This is a card that I submitted for Papertrey ink's Guest Star Stamper (GSS) that occurs every month right before a new release. Nichole and her gang did another fantabulous job. Its crazy all the great stuff she has.

Anyway, this card is actually a full size version of an ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap that I joined. This ATC Swap is my very first swap ever and it is also the very first ATC I've ever made. It was fun and I just might do it again. Who knows. So back to the Big Card - I made it with my hubby in mind. Its kind of girly, but he's my hubby so he won't care. I like the sentiment Bee Mine from Honey Bees and of course he is mine so...

Everything is from Papertrey ink unless noted

And of course today is Father's Day. For all you Dads out there, I hope you have a great day or wives you can tell them that for me :)

All I can say is that my hubby is the best Dad! He is what you call a hands on Dad and he is there for me as well as for the boys.

I didn't make this card for him, but for another Dad we know. To be honest, I don't have a lot of male schtuff to stamp with so I used a lot of animals this year. I went out today looking for some stuff and found an awesome stamp of a peg board with tools on it - really cool stamp - really big - and REALLY expensive for me. It was $16 for one stamp. I know it was big, but I just couldn't.

Hope everyone has a great day and thanks for stopping by!
