From the kitchen of and Fabulous Phrases by Stampin Up and me

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks for hopping by again.
It is so good to be part of this wonderful, positive and supportive community of creative people that love to encourage each other and make each other smile.
You sure blessed me with your sweet comments yesterday. I think that as we share our creativity, our our ideas, our experiences and our joys, we make this big world seem small! I love it!

Today I was inspired by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Fathers Day Theme Challenge #70. They encouraged us to celebrate the dad's or the special guy's in our lives. Well they came to the right address. We have a very special guy / dad in this lovely household. My hubby Scott, he also happens to be a very great dad to our 3 kids. This weekend he turned just a normal bunch of trees in the front yard into a huge climbing are for our son. he loves it! Now who comes up with those kind of idea's? Yip, him!!!

So this card will be for him. :)
I loved the idea that I came up with this morning! But to be honest I don't own many Fathers day stamps.. I have this one sentiment from 'Well Scripted' made by Stampin Up, which is now retired. (But still very use full!) . So off I went.

  • I used the 'From the kitchen Of..' Stamp set made by Stampin Up (#114967 - $36.95) And I used the main stamp of this set: 'the recipe template card.. thingy'.

  • In the corner I stamped the 'dear Father' sentiment and there you had it! A recipe card for the best Father.

  • For the ingredients of my recipe Fathers Day card ,I used the following sentiments from the Fabulous Phrases Stampin Up stamp set (#120501 - $32.95) : smile, happy, sweet, kind, best, love and friend. Yip, that's my hubby!

  • I used the little squirrel from the retired Stampin Up Love Bandit stamp set. Isn't it the cutest critter ever. I hope it is not to feminine for this man in my life.

  • I used the retired Kiwi Kiss Card stock and Classic ink from Stampin Up + some Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake. That little bit of DSP you see is from the 'Walk in the Park' Designer Series Paper created by Stampin Up and which is now retired. I love every bit of it.
I also promised you yesterday to show you a glimpse of our daughter Rachel getting ready for her dance show last Sunday. We're crazy about her. Her smile really lights up the room! Hope she brights up your day a little bit as well.

Inky hugs, Pauline
