Relax & Unwind, Dad

Okay, one more card this week...and it's a Father's Day card, since this Sunday is the holiday.

I made this for one of my fathers-in-law, who lives near a beach.  When I found this fun palm-tree paper from Webster's Pages I knew it was perfect for him. Not sure which 6 x 6 paper pack it came from; they are kind of mixed up at the moment...but rest assured, it's probably discontinued.  Most of my goodies are.  Ha!


I stamped a 'relax & unwind' sentiment from Inspired By Stamping, and a 'dad' one from Lizzie Anne Designs, added some twine and presto!  It was finished.

I'm painting my front door tomorrow in a color called Universal Black by Benjamin Moore.  Who knew there could be so many shades of black paint?  It's the blackest one I could find in that brand, and can't wait to see how the door looks!

He is going to love this Colleen!! I like the parade of turtles. I wanted to paint our front door black, hubby said boo, so I'm moving on to something else!

Colleen, this is beautiful and perfect for your near-the-beach father-in-law! Most of my papers are retired, too. So many papers! Enjoy your painting. When we were ready to paint I told Rich I wanted either a white house with black trim or a yellow house with white trim. Well, you know how that turned out, but I would have been happy either way. Have a good weekend!
