Happy Father's Day

Today's it's Father's Day in most of the world, but not in Australia. That doesn't mean that I didn't have to get crafty, as it's still Father's Day for my dad. Of course I made him a card.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper: October Afternooon Weathervane | Button: Basic Grey | Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts Thickers | Label Die: Spellbinder Nestabilities | Ribbon: Vandoros | Border Punch: EK Success | Marker: ZIG Brown

Since I made a calendar for my mum for Mother's Day, I thought it would be nice to make a calendar for my dad too. It is on a smaller scale, as I used a display stand from Maya Road, but I still used the same calendar template, and simply shrunk it down. I also omitted the name of the month and year.

The display stand comes with 12 tabbed chipboard pages. I added the front myself from some left over chipboard.

Supplies: Display Stand: Maya Road | Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper: October Afternoon 'Weathervane' | Border Punch: EK Success | Star Punch: Fiskars + Sizzix | Buttons: Basic Grey | Clear Stamps: Autumn Leaves | Software: Adobe Photoshop CS3 | Ink: Ranger's Distress Ink (Antique Linen) + Palette (Ripe Avocado + Aqua Mist) + Staz'On (Timber Brown)| Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts + October Afternoon 'Weathervane' | Marker: ZIG (Brown)

I always love how it works out perfectly for all the months, as each grandchild is on the month they celebrate their birthday and the leftover months equates to exactly the right amount for each to have two pictures and one of the siblings. I possibly could have done with one more for a picture of the five of them together as those occasions are quite rare being 10,000 Miles apart.

I wish all the dads a very happy Father's Day. Did any of you create a keepsake for this special occasion? Enjoy your Sunday.

Beautiful card and another awesome calendar. Again you did a wonderful gift. Happy to hear it arrived in time. I didn't make any special gift. I always have plans to make something, but am always way too late to execute them.
