Happy Father's Day & Arbor....

I really can't believe that I have become such a sporadic blogger. :-( This summer has been super busy. We have been working in the yard, on the road, & my sweet hubby had carpal tunnel surgery last week. It seems like I can rarely find time to even check my email. I'm going to catch up one of these days. :-)

I made this card for my husband for Father's Day. I'm so blessed to have him in my life. He's the best. Happy Father's Day!! I totally cased this card from the SU catalog. I didn't have the sentiment stamps used on the card, so I improvised and did that part on the computer. He loved it!! :-)
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Stamps: SU Nature Silhouettes
Brads: American Craft
Ribbon: American Craft
Fonts: Licorice & Gill Sans

I also wanted to share the arbor that my husband built for me. I think he did a great job on it. He made it with no pattern at all...isn't he talented? lol!! These photos were taken before I planted jasmine on the sides. I'm going to put a flower bed on each side of it with a picket fence behind the flower beds. This is on hold until he recovers from his surgery. I already have my list ready for him to get started. :-)

FYI: My patio is not icky in real life...I took the photos early in the morning & the shadows made it look dirty. Just wanted to clarify that...wouldn't want anyone to think I don't clean my patio. LOL!

That's it for now...hope everyone is doing well. I have a couple more cards to share, so hope to get them posted in the next few days. I miss all my blog buddies and hope to visit with you soon.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Hey, Lady! So good to see you doing something creative...I was starting to worry about you. Glad to see it's nothing bad, just " it's summer got to get 'em done" that's got you occupied. Hope to see you around more.
