Sneak Peek Day 2: Father's Day!

Hello all! The Flourishes fun continues today with day 2 of their sneak peeks for May! Today -- it's all about the dads in our lives - our own dads, our husbands or any dad you want to send a little love to!

Introducing.....

In this classic silhouette set by Lauren Pope, she captures the heartfelt images of a father with his children. It's playful and loving and will be a sure-fire Father's Day hit. This 4 by 6" set features three focal images plus five sentiments perfect to honor dear ole Dad! We know -- just like Dad -- it's a keeper!! If you like the looks of this set -- it's available for pre-order right now, right HERE!!

On to my creation -- it's an easy peasy one that you might need sunglasses to look at! I wanted one that would show the spirit of a child in -- one with bold colors and graphical impact!


I grabbed the BasicGrey Life of the Party paper pack (which is on sale right now if you use the code SPRINGCLEAN -- it will give you 15% off!) I just love the bright colors in this pack with the rustic browns and wood grain patterns -- perfect for Dad -- don't you think?

Card tidbits: This one was pretty simple - I stamped my image onto my dp using Memento Rich Cocoa and then stamped Happy Fathers Day in Tuxedo Black and then stamped only a portion of one of one of the sentiments using Tangelo ink. I added a brad, some twine, a fun punched border -- make that two, some stitching and sanded edges and.... ta da!!! Easy peasy!

Here's a close up -- love that image. So classic!!!

Hi Julie.


You all made me cry with this stamps today. Having lost my father more than 20 years ago, you made it possible for me to evoke such wonderful and tender moments that my children and I spent with him!
This comments are not intended for you guys to feel bad. You have managed with a card to give me a lifelong lesson. Keeping him alive with my memories!!
He was such a Great Man, he deserves to be remember always even though it pains my heart, that is the biggest tribute that I can give to him!
Thanks for the memories!
