WOOHOO! Two cards in one day. LOL Thought I'd share the card I made my dad for Father's Day. Yes, this is another one of those quirky Art Impression stamps, but this is one I purchased myself a while back with my Dad in mind. There is a bit of a story behind me using this image. You see the family alternately shakes their heads and cackles with laughter when Dad mows his lawn. He and Mom have an acre that is predominantly open yard and the man will literally mow it for four days. No, there is not that much grass. He'll mow it and then mow it again to blow it into piles and well....we're not really sure what the other mowings are for. LOL Maybe he just loves to ride the mower that much. Who knows but at least it keeps him out of mischief. So as you can see, I figured this stamp, aptly titled "The Lawn Ranger", captured this aspect of his character pretty darned well.
Since we're talking about dads, pop over to the Catered Crop and play along with the "For the Boys" challenge Linda has up. She has a great inspiration board up if you need some ideas.
Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. My poor hubby has to work so I might need to find something to keep myself out of mischief. Wonder if Dad will let me borrow his lawn mower? mwahahaha
