Thank you and Father's Day

Hello all of my crafty pals. I want to start today by saying thank you to everyone who has left such sweet comments and who have become followers of my new blog. A little back story I was away for a couple of years due to some personal issues and in the process lost all of my crafting supplies. I had some wonderful ladies send some of their stash to get me crafting again. I went to delete one of my Google accounts and it wiped out my entire craft blog. I almost cried. I had years of crafts posted, hundreds of followers and all of my awards that I had won on that blog and in an instant it was gone. :o( So I set up this one. I am so happy to be back to crafting and looking at everyone's gorgeous work. I still feel sad when I think of all of the great content I lost on my old blog but hey I get to start fresh right! I just wanted you all to know that your comments and the fact that you are choosing to follow me (whether you are an old friend or a new pal) means more to this gal than you know!

OK so enough sappy stuff, right! The card I have for you today is a Father's Day card for my husband. I am not the best at making male cards. I don't know, everything I am use to using seems so girly. lol  I dug through the stuff I had and came up with this. The Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is "Cards for Men"......well when Simon says do something, you have to, right! I hope you like it. Below you will find other challenges that I am entering.
