A Little Something for Dad

Happy Monday & Happy Memorial Day !

Today is Blog Hop Monday over at

If you came by way of our May Guest Designer
then you are in the perfect spot.
We have enjoyed having Anita as our guest designer
this past month and thank her for all the inspiration
she has shared.

If you just happened to stop by, you definitely want
to make you way back to the beginning at the
because there is always a fabby prize to be won !

I thought it would be a great week to inspire you for June with a
Father's Day card.  With today being Memorial Day, I am reminded
of my dad who was in the Navy as a young man.  I remember back when
I was in middle school, we had a dress-up day and I chose to use
my dad's Navy uniform and thought it was so cool.
His uniform is packed away with many keepsakes I have of his.
He has been gone for twelve years and I miss him each day.

You know I am a HUGE fan of EAD Designs 'Stickerz' line and today I 
used the 'Dad Sentiments' set to make this card.
I embellished the tie with tiny gems to kinda make it POP !
The paper is from Echo Park and adds a lot of dimension after I die cut
the circles using dies from Spellbinders.

Here is the set I used . . .

and there is plenty of time for you to get your order placed
at EAD Designs and you'll have time to
make cards for that special dad in your life.

Remember . . .

The next stop on the hop is the very creative
Lauren of Lauren's Creative

Make sure you leave a quick note before you move
 on because that prize could be YOURS !

Enjoy your day !
