Happy Father's Day to You, Pop

Hello Again!
I have another post for today on this fantastic Friday. I have been super busy crafting and sharing some DT love. I even did some laundry, so it was productive. : )

Since my husband knows that I do not like to purchase cards from Walmart any more, he asked me to make him a Father's Day card for his dad (well, he actually calls him Pop). Of course, I said yes. The in-laws are getting a new television (I do not think the one they have  is actually from the 50's, but it is pretty old.) and his father is NOT into modern technology, so I thought this image was perfect.

Once I showed my husband he agreed. : )
I used the Nifty Fifties cartridge to cut the T.V. at 3".

Here are the images from the cartridge. If you do not have this one, it definitely needs to be added to your wish list. 
Here is a close-up of the T.V.

The inside is stamped.
Don't forget to use those scraps. I use the long pieces to decorate the inside and the outside of the envelopes.


I still need to make my husband a card, but I will have time to do that tomorrow while he takes my son shopping. My daughter should be able to make her own card and then post it at her site, One Creative Teen. She sure has picked up the crafty bug lately. She just doesn't have the "post it" often type. Maybe with time...

Enjoy your weekend,
