Happy Father's Day!!

Ok...WOW!  I just have to say....it may not seem it by blog posts...but I HAVE BEEN STAMPING to the MAX!  And here's a photo to prove it...

Believe me when I say...this was a SMALL portion of the mess that was in my room.  :)  And if my room was this messy, I better have a ton of projects to share with you...right?!  Well...sadly...the projects I was making I can't share just yet.  WHY?!  You may be asking?!  (Or maybe you don't really care.  :) )  Well...remember the post HERE where I talked about applying to be a convention display stamper?!  I WAS PICKED!!!!  Yay!  It was a blast to create projects (and a lot of pressure) that will hopefully inspire demonstrators and help them in their businesses.  SOOOOO...I will share these projects with you...but not until after convention.

HOWEVER....I do have a few things to share today!  As you know, it was Father's Day this last weekend.  I was lucky enough to be able to spend it with two amazing men in my life...my Father and my Husband.  I am so lucky to be raised by the man I was...he was such an amazing example.  And by his example...I knew what to look for in a husband...and boy, did I pick well on that one!  I'm very lucky to have both of these men in my life.  I also have an amazing Father-in-Law that we got to spend time with the week before Father's Day.  Sad he wasn't here on Father's Day with us!

Back to stamping projects...I better share a few things I did for these men in my life.  :)

First up....THANK YOU PAPER PUMPKIN for helping me with my Father's Day cards this year.  As you can see from the photo above...I didn't have much space to work with.  :)  I was able to whip these up in seconds.

The same card...one is portrait and one is landscape.  So much fun!  (If you aren't a Paper Pumpkin subscriber...what are you waiting for?!  :)  I LOVE my monthly crafting escape!  Let me know if you have questions!  Happy to tell you more! designwithink@gmail.com)  These went in with their gifts.

Then at their spot at our table...I wanted another little reminder of how much we loved them.  (I have three girls...and they all LOVE their Daddy so much and squeal whenever he is around!  Same with Grandpa!  They deserve to feel special on their special day!)

I made the center circle of this tag really fast in My Digital Studio. (Did you know this AMAZING Digital Scrapbooking Software is ONLY $19.95?!  AND you can get a FREE 30-day trial?!?!  Just email me for details!  Or check out my store... www.ashleyvancamp.stampinup.net)  I have really been getting into this program and loving every second!

Twix is one of their fave candy's.  So I gave them both a bag of these candy bars.  The tag says "you're worth more to us than GOLD".  Here is a close-up...

It was fun putting these together.  It's so much fun how much the little details make all the difference. Stampin' Up! helps me with the details just about daily.

Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you enjoyed!  Check back in July to see my display projects!  :)  (I will post other things in the meantime.  :) )  Let me know if you have any questions... designwithink@gmail.com

Love the project and the card! I love masculine cards that don't shout out. "I am a great hunter, fisherman, golfer, outdoorsman". This is a great card any guy would enjoy!
