To My Dad

Greetings Readers,

Debby Yates continues to inspire me with her paper piecing.  She is a master at the craft.  When seeking inspiration for a Father’s Day card for my dad, the creative juices started flowing when I saw a recent card Debby displayed at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge as a design team member.  I’ll put a link for it below.  It was so very well done.  Here’s my card.

Daddy 2017 watermarked 1

My dad is 92 and drives to his favorite places every day.  Everywhere he goes, he makes people smile.  We live 500 miles from him, but whenever we get to be together, I love hearing his old stories, jokes and him singing his silly ditties.

Wishing you a happy day,

Trish
