Hi blog friends! The holiday weekend kicks off today! Any plans? As most of you know, my hubby is Australian. I met Brad when I was only 15 years old. He was a Rotary Exchange student and we only knew each other for 10 days before he went back to the beautiful land of Oz. We were best friends (my first love) for 5 years and wrote letters back and forth. Yes, snail mail was all we had in those days. I can still remember running to the mailbox whenever I saw the mailman hoping that there was a letter from him. And then he came back to America to see me while I was at Michigan State and well the rest is history.
Any who, this weekend is also a special weekend for my husband as it is Father’s Day in Australia. So today’s card is for my Australian friends who will be honoring all the Dad’s this weekend and my gorgeous hubby! Happy Father's Day. 🙂
I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday weekend wherever you are in the world. Hugs to you all!
My Mind’s Eye Paris & Co paper pad was used for my decorative paper. Three bronze Brads on each side of the card were used for my glam. I also used some Grosgrain Early Espresso Ribbon for the center. I wasn’t going to use ribbon but I think it is not too girlie? I hope not.
I used the SU! Best Dad Ever stamp set in Chocolate Chip. To make a frame using Spellbinders, first lay two dies down on a piece of magnetic sheet. Then lay paper over it. Whip it through the Big Shot and you have a gorgeous frame. For an added effect, I lifted the frame using Dimensionals.
