I think I'm back...and with a Father's Day card!

Remember this shower card invite???

Well here he is!

...and here is the card I made for his Daddy, my nephew.

The verbage is from a poem called "What is a boy?

A boy is a magical creature -- you can lock him out of your workshop,
but you can't lock him out of your heart.
You can get him out of your study, but you can't get him out of your mind.
Might as well give up -- he is your captor,
your jailer, your boss, and your master --
a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing,
bundle of noise. But when you come home at night
with only shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams,
he can mend them like new with two magic words,
"Hi Dad!"

Recently, I
received a wonderful little package of House Mouse stamped card stock from Judy at Prairie Wildflower Paper crafts.
This is the first one I have used and I need practice with my water coloring, but I thought the big bunny with the baby was just totally appropriate for this card!

I used some red, white and blue DP that I have had for a long time. The
bling came from a sack of tiny, tiny buttons I got at Craft Warehouse. The greeting is computer generated, as is the inside writing. I used a Martha Stuart punch for the edging, and the picture and frame are from my nesties.
