Father's Day Cards

Father's Day is quickly approaching and I actually made some special cards for the day. I had not intended on making any because I haven't had much experience with cards for men. But my mother-in-law put in a request.  So off to my local craft stores I went. I was so excited to find some paper and other supplies that had "manly" written all over them. Of course, I consulted my manly man for his input. We were happy with what we bought and how they turned out. In fact, my mom saw the ones I made and she put in an order. Awesome!

I am glad she requested these cards or otherwise I wouldn't known I could do it. So, I learned that taking a challenge often leads to an awareness of hidden abilities. Next time you have a creative challenge, go for it. You may surprise yourself!

Here are some of the cards I made.  Thanks for visiting!
