2 for One

I wanted to make this Father's Day card using Taylor's sketch from last week (TECC71) and take part in Janet's Corrosive challenge 15 this week; a Father's Day card but I wasn't sure I would have a chance to stamp today because I had to go to the passport office (yep I am stuck here for a couple of weeks!) Last time I had to renew the line ups were crazy long but I somehow managed only 30min BUT you can't be that lucky twice right?! Well it took only 10 min. start to finish!! There was NO ONE in line how sweet!! Gave me the time I needed to make my card :)

The Stamp is from Taylored Expressions Whimsical Wishes Boys will be Boys line - love this because there is a stamp for any guy in your life. My father-in-law reads a couple of newspapers a day so this was perfect; and although he doesn't drink coffee (crazy I know!) he does like tea or hot chocolate. The card came together quickly because I used my March Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions, I have been receiving them for 3 months and LOVE them & will re-new my subscription when it runs out!

After the passport office I had lunch with a friend on a patio because it's nice here today & now I am just getting ready to go & golf with some friends - what a great day!!

Have a great rest of your day -

I like it - simple and manly. Here's the trick for the passport office....arrive 20 minutes before it closes. Honest! It works, I was in and out in 15 minutes!!!

What a fab card! I love its simplicity and the way you've set it all off at an angle. The sentiment and image are great for guys too. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day, it sounds great!
