Father's Day is Almost Here

Well it's almost Father's Day - so here at Heart2Heart we are celebrating a little early.  Stop on by and check out the other Design Team's creations and be inspired to create something for the father in your life.  

I struggled a bit with my project this week because my own father passed away when was a small child and so I've never really celebrated Father's Day or created a Father's Day card.  I decided to make my card simple -- tried to make it "Clean and Simple" but not sure that I accomplished that or not.  You be the judge:

I used our Cruisin' paper which has some great "masculine" colors:  black, twilight, juniper are just some of the colors that coordinate with this great paper pack.  I cut some Black cardstock at 4" x 5 1/4", the B&T paper was cut at 4" x 3 1/2"; and the Cranberry cardstock was cut at 1 1/2" x 4".  The letters came from our Dimensional Elements Notable Alphabet (Z1682) set.  I covered the letters with Twilight cardstock.  What was really nice was that I didn't have to trace the letters and then cut them out.  I just took out my trusty Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and cut the letters at 1 1/2".  Sooo simple!

I hope you join us and link your Father's Day projects - would love to see what you come up!

As a reminder here are the updated rules/guidelines for our challenges:
* All links must be to artwork that fits the challenge for the week and contain Close To My Heart products. If it does not include CTMH products, the link will be removed.

* All links must be directly to the specific post with the artwork for the challenge. To do this, compose your post, publish it and then click the title of the post. This should take you to a page that has only that one post on it. This is the page we need a link to - not to your whole blog. If the link sends us to your entire blog, your link will be removed.

* Your blog post MUST mention that you are entering the challenge at H2H and link to our site. If you don't mention H2H in your post, your link may be removed.

Thanks so much for stopping by - as always - love to read your comments :)


  1. Your card is very nice. I am not close to my father, but I enjoy making them for my hubby. Hope you will stop by when you get a chance.

  3. You did a fantastic job with your card Lucy. I lost my Daddy last year and I know it is difficult to make a card for this occasion!
