Happy Father's Day


Father’s Day is getting closer. For me, Father’s Day is a day of remembrance as I lost my daddy last year. He was a great man that loved, God, his Country, and my mother!


what a great looking couple -- their wedding picture June 15, 1951



this picture was taken at my daughter's wedding November 17, 2007



Daddy and Me a long long time ago in a land far far away . . .




taken at an airshow in 2010 with the planes similar to what my dad had flown in


Creating cards that are masculine is something that I have always found difficult to make. I found the idea of a shirt card which I added a tie of a stripe cut on the diagonal and of course, the little buttons on the tip of the collar and a "diamond" stud as a tie tack. My daddy was super sharp dresser and liked his collars crisp with those little buttons . . .


Did  you notice, the pocket has a monogram on it!!!! 

Happy Father’s Day to all the great men in your life whether it be a dad, grandfather, husband, brother or that special man in your life!!

God Bless and thank you for stopping by
