Father's Day for OWH

Father's day comes early for Operation Write Home crafters. Our deadline for Father's day cards is May 21, to give them time to ship them out so soldiers can send them home. I was feeling a little uninspired until I found some great color combinations on Pinterest, and wonderful card sketches from Gina K's Stamp TV.

I found this BoBunny paper this weekend at my Archiver's store. I love the entire pad! I used Special Father's set by Nina Brackett and colored the clock with my Copic markers.

I made a stacked sentiment with my Nestabilities, and I wanted something to create a splash, but being a Dad's card, it couldn't be flowers or ribbon. I raided the Cabana Boy's tackle box, and got his fishing line. I cut the line into segments, and glued seed beads to both ends. I love how these add a little masculine sparkle to the cards. And just to be safe, I glued the beads to the card, too.

Give it a go sometime - what a terrific addition it will give those fishing styled cards! Now I'm off to make up a few more for soldiers to send back to their dads.
