Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - A Tribute To Fathers

Well everyone my card was a bit hard to make as I didn't really want to have to reminisce about my Dad who I lost 3 years ago, so I made it for hubby from the kids. Our challenge this week pays tribute to the wonderful fathers who are mentors to their kids. We are looking for cards that are a tribute to men/dad's around the world. For my card I had taken a course on my Cricut. I needed to get to know my Cricut cutter a little better, so I am taking this fantastic course and in it we learned to make this little card. I decided to make mine my Father's Day card for my kids to give their Dad. I love the little pocket we made and also how we lined it. I printed off the Mr. Fix It from the computer and glued it onto my tag. I'm pretty sure the paper is from Basic Grey, but I didn't get a strip on my sheet to see. I cut the Dad out with one of the fonts, I think Plantin Schoolhouse. I added the rhinestones to the letters for looks. I used the image Mr. Fix It from Karen's Doodles. This was the perfect image for my husband. He's always got his head in one of the cars somewhere in the garage. I sometimes see more of his backside on a good weekend.
We are offering 2 prizes this week, so we should see lots of entries. Our first prize is from:

Happy Father's Day to all those Wonderful Fathers!!

Hugs xx

Hi Carolyn,
Sorry I haven't been around for a while but I hope I'm back for good and what a great card to come back to. I love this. A wonderful fathers day card. I hardly ever use my cricut so I am impressed that you have given it a try.
