My Craft Spot Challenge! Happy Fathers Day to My Sweetie!

I cannot believe it is already Monday, which means it is time for another challenge over at My Craft Spot. This weeks challenge #12 is to create a project for fathers day.

I lost my father at a very young age. Dad was truly a great man and father, he was loved by everyone and even though we had very little money growing up he made sure that us three girls had everything that was important in life, especially Love! I have so many fond memories of my Dad and I miss him dearly. He was only 55 when he passed away. My hubby's father is also gone, so my card this week is for my wonderful husband ....... even if the old guy forgot my Birthday!!! That is two years in a row. I could understand if we had only been together for a few years, but we are talking 41 years in October.

I guess he can blame it on old age. LOL!

My card this week is called a Center Step Card, instruction for this card can be found over at Splitcoast Stampers, it was so easy to whip up and I just love the way it turned out! What is even better ........ is all the paper was from my very large scrap bucket.

Both the crinkled ribbon and twine can be purchased at My Craft Spot. Kimberly has so many lovely colours to choose from, in both the ribbon and twine. This week she has added some Beautiful New Ribbon colours to her collections and they look so yummy! How about Old Glory: which includes three great new colours, Cranberry, Vanilla Bean and Navy Blue or the 4th of July collection: Scarlet Red, Snow White and Navy Blue, last but not least she has the new Summer Vacation: collection which is Caribbean, Sandy Beach and Hot Pink! So make sure you pop over to My Craft Spot and check out the newest colours!

The bottom sentiment reads "You make my life sweet" which is from My Craft Spots Sentiment inside and Out Stamp Set which can also be purchased over at My Craft Spot .

Now it is your turn to show us all your wonderful Father Days Projects. Who knows what yummy candy Kimberly will have this week up for grabs .

I am also going to enter this card in the following Challenges:
