Father's Day Fallout

I don't have a relationship with my father.
Maybe we are just too much alike. Yikes.
I did send him a card for the first time in three years.
More for me, than for him, but I sent one.
I don't want a phone call, but I do want him to know
I love him.

That being said, I do have three wonderful men in
my life who do deserve a heartfelt Father's Day card.

This one was for my FIL.
I was going for CAS and I managed it okay I think.
I am still new to single layer cards, but it did come together 
quite quickly. 

I opted for a handwritten sentiment as I don't have
any Father's Day stamps. I used Mercius from SBS.
I kept him monochrome to cut down
on my coloring time (which can take up to an hour or more!).

This one is for my other FIL who is a Mac geek.
This image is specifically for him. Perfect! I knew 
instantly when I saw it at Tiddly Inks ,
I had to have it for him. 

I totally struggled with the right sentiment and I finally
decided to go with a binary code with happy father's day
hidden within. Totally homemade, but effective.
I kept this one as a single layer card so I could play along with
the challenge at Tiddly Inks. 

Lastly, is my favorite card.
I immediately fell in love with the image when I saw it last year

This one is for my husband, who we both agree is
a much better father than either of us had.
He is awesome, and my son I are both uber blessed to
have him in our lives.

Happy (belated) Father's Day!
