Happy Father's Day

Early this morning Fleur and I made a cake for Father's Day and let Eric sleep in. Shortly after breakfast we left to see Sanne who had a hockey tournament in a village nearby. She already left last evening and stayed overnight. Her team did really well and won all 5 games. The girls had a blast....they played hockey and other games, had a disco party last night and went swimming at 7.30am this morning.

I wasn't well prepared for Father's Day this year and hadn't made any cards in advance. I even considered buying cards but ended up making cards myself at the very last minute. Since I didn't have much time I kept the designs simple. The first card is the one I made for Eric in his favorite color (blue) with a touch of red.


SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Kraft), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Sasparilla) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Tag-its #2) | Ink: Versafine (Vintage Sepia), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Tea Dye Duo) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Button: Papertrey Ink | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Boxy Banners Die Collection Seeing Stars Die Collection), EK Success (1 3/4" circle punch), sewing machine | Other: foamtape

I made my dad and father-in-law the same card. Not very original but I didn't have too much time to think about two different designs.



Just like Eric's card I used the Sasparilla collection from October Afternoon along with their Rocket Age collection.

  1. Nou voor snelle kaarten zien ze er hartstikke mooi uit. Mooi papier bij elkaar en de vlagvorm vind ik momenteel helemaal gaaf. Erg leuk met de ster en een touwtje door de knoop. Mooi stikwerk ook Ingrid!
    Super dat je dochter het zo goed deed met hockey!
    Groetjes, Jose

    En wat dan nog, als manlief en de vaders ze maar leuk vonden, daar gaat het om.

  3. Leuk dat Sanne zo'n heerlijk weekend had en het goed deed met hockey. Je kaarten zijn ook weer erg leuk. Ik vind het papier met spijkerbroekstof erg grappig.
