Sweet Sketch Wednesday 106 & Digi Stamp Boutique

We are so happy to have you join us this week.  We have some exciting news.  PATTI PAINTER from Patti's Paper Creations has joined our Design Team.  I hope you will stop on by her wonderful blog and give her a warm welcome to our team.  You will love her wonderful creations.

This week we are happy to have the DIGI STAMP BOUTIQUE be our sponsor. Sally Ann is one of our regular sponsors and we are delighted each month to showcase her images.   The GRAND PRIZE winner this week will receive (6) six digis of their choice.  So, why don't you stop by and join the fun this week.  Our DT has some amazing creations for you!

Father's Day is just around the corner and so
I wanted to create a card for my Father-in-law.  I ended up sending him the first one here.  He has given me so much support this past year and has been an inspiration to me throughout my married life.  I truely admire and respect him.  He has been a wonderful father and example to all six of his children, their wives or husbands and his grand children.  I want him to know how much he is loved by all of us.
I also want to pay tribute to my wonderful father who passed away a few months back.  He too, was a wonderful father and example to his family. I love and miss him dearly. 

Recipe for my card:
Paper: Stampin Up and Scenic Route Paper
Ribbon, Buttons and Twine
Sentiment: computer generated

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful week. I appreciate your comments!


  1. Hi Nancy I love both of your cards, I know that your Father In Law will love his card and your Dad would have loved his card as well. Father's Day in New Zealand isn't until the 1st Sunday in September. Love your paper piecing on the second card, great colours and design papers. Enjoy your weekend and have fun crafting.

  2. Oh, Nancy these are so adorable...I hope to have Rick grilling out later today! Not only do I love the grilled food, but cuts down on my kitchen time,lol. What a beautiful post for your fathers....our Dads are both gone and we miss them so much. Love the way your papers really play up the sketch this week and the paper piecing is terrific. I love to do that.

  11. This is such a great card - I love that argyle paper with this fun image. I almost chose this because my hubby is the king of the grill in our family. The paper piecing on the one card is so fun. Your writeup is so beautiful Nancy about your father and father-in-law. Made me tear up reading it. A lovely tribute to both.
