Father's Day Cards

For special occasions (like Father's Day) I like to put a little more time and effort into my cards. I usually use extra embelishments on them as well. Here are my cards for Father's Day 2009.

A card for my music loving husband. The notes have black flocking on them....something new I just got from Paper Wishes.

A sea themed card for my dad......I had a lot of fun making this card even though it had a lot of intricate paper piecing pieces to it.

A card for our "other" dad......the one who fixes our Jeep when it needs it, puts the railing up on our front steps, fixes our appliances when they break etc. He does this in the absence of our "real" dads, since they both live too far away. He is a mechanic by trade.....hence the "car" card.

A card for my Father In Law who loves gardening and anything to do with it.
The flowers/bee/butterfly have added glitter and the flower pot is cut out of aluminum foil.

Wow!! They are all gorgeous! I think the one for your dad is my favorite. It looks like it took a long time to do, but the results were totally worth it!
