Father's Day/For Dad at FFF

Phew, boy was I glad to have my internet back up & running last night! I think I was going thru withdrawal as a few of us on the PF DT were without internet access yesterday! Darn rainstorms!!! Thankfully everything is working today allowing me to post my DT creation for Fairy Fun Fridays!


It's Father's Day/Something for Dad over at Fairy Fun Friday this week. So let's get making those father's day cards (even though father's day is  tomorrow).........heck get them ready for next year too!!
The image from Prarie Fairy Designs that I used is called Summer Fun.
For my card, I used Basic Grey papers ( a new purchase- YAY!) & a digital sentiment I got from The Whimsy Stamp Store (which was created by a fellow DT member Ann at Raindrop Echo Designs).
Seashell buttons & seude type chord (holding charm) courtesy of the dollar store.
Charm & DAD letters from Micheals!
Of course can't forget about my handy dandy design scissors (OK, daughter's scissors that I have since stolen...i mean...borrowed permanently) that I used to cut around my sentiment.

Remember how I said DH was not getting anything for father's day....well that ended being a pile of 'pooh' ! We went to the city yesterday & we got him (he got himself) some hip-wadders! (EDITED-Hipwadders are like coveralls except with boots attached to the bottom & they are waterproof. I should say 'chest wadders' cuz they come up to one's chest. They keep a person's clothes dry while trampling around in flood waters, swamps, or whilst fly fishing) Not  very much of a surprise, but the last pair we got him didn't fit, so he had to pick them out himself!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the dads out there!!!
