Happy Father's Day with 2 Cards!

Here are the Father's Day cards that I had to reschedule!

I actually made two Father's Day cards this year - one for Grant to give my Dad and one for myself to give. I had two sentiments that were perfect and I couldn't decide which to use so I decided to make two so I could use them both!This is the card I made for Grant to give to my Dad. It was made using SC232, which I obviously couldn't share earlier. For reasons I won't get into, Grant has always felt as though my Dad is his Dad (although now he is officially since we're married) and his "father figure" for when we have children so this Papertrey Ink sentiment says that all so eloquently.This card is the card I made for myself to give to him (inspired by SC231). This sentiment has always been the case with my Dad. I constantly tried (and still do) to get him to buy me stuff and after paying for my wedding this sentiment could not be more true!

My Dad has done so many things I admire and I only hope he knows how much we appreciate everything he has done for us. He (and my Mom) even suggested Grant move in with us when he needed to get out of his living situation - so if it weren't for them, things may not even be the way they are between Grant and I now. I hope he rubbed off enough on Grant (as I'm sure Grant does too) to enable Grant to be the same kind of father he is.

Allison, these are both fabulous! Your signature classy style are written all over them! Love your story about the pic's in your Dad's wallet where no money is! Dad's are awesome for that!
