Father's Day #1

Hi Everyone!
The girls have been away at camp for the last few days so I've have lots of quality time with my Husband and lots of quality crafty time too!
I've been busy making Father's day cards.  I've never really been very good at making "man" cards- but I think I'm getting better.
For the next few days I'll share my cards, who they're for, and what inspired me to make what I made.
My first card is for my Dad. 
Jim, Jimmy Do, Borgnine, Papa D- he'll answer to any of them.  
(Since I was little) He's always said, " You can call me anything- just don't call me late for dinner."
That's a "Jim-ism" as we call them in our family.

PDB: Just 4 Men, Silhouette Cameo
The background paper made me think of my dad.  He has a shirt just like it.
If it had short sleeves and a hole in the pocket- it would be like you were looking right at him.
(if you knew my dad you would totally get this!)
The tie on the other hand is SO NOT my dad, but hey- it's a special occasion-
It's Father's Day!


  1. What a great Father's Day card! I think just about every Father in the world has a shirt made from fabric like! Love your "Jim-ism". My family has a lot of "Herb-isms"! Again, this is a great card!

  2. Love your SIL/CAM card. Reminds me that I gotta use mine more often.
    Thanks for playing along with our challenge for Father's Day at Simply Create Too.

  4. Julie, a fun card for your Dad...wait til he see's the When my Dad wore a Tee shirt it had to have a pocket on it. Funny my dad's name was Jim or Jimmy to some...boy I sure do miss him. Love and hug your Dad.

    Take care!

  8. How fun! I love the tie, Julie! :)

  9. Ooh, love the "plaid shirt." Now if I could just get my DH to pick out more interesting patterns in his wardrobe. I do not believe that business casual is blah and blah with a hint of blue. haha

  10. PERFECT sentiment!! Loving the patterned shirt!

  11. Love the sentiment on the wonderful tie, great print for your shirt! Thanks for joining us @ CTO this week for our "Father's Day" Challenge :o)
