#1 Dad

I apologize for anyone who stopped by and this post wasn't live.  I've been having issues with Blogger all week (I think due to the conversion) and my scheduled posts haven't been publishing like they promised they would.  :)

This is my 3rd post of the day (wow!) If you're looking for The Craft's Meow blog hop or my Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge card, please scroll down.

Hello friends! Today is our Rubbernecker Stamps Father's Day blog hop! If you're like me and you need more "man card" ideas, this tour is sure to give you some great inspiration!

I started off with the great #1 Dad Trophy stamp and heat embossed it onto some navy cardstock. I cut it out with a lable die and adhered it atop some paper and some fun embellishments from the Rocket Age collection. One of my dad's favorite card's I've made was one published in the December issue of Cards Magazine so I thought I'd give him a Father's Day card that was of the same theme. I sure hope he likes it!

I've included the hop route below and if you leave comments along the way and then on the Stampin' Sisterhood blog, you'll be eligible to win a stamp set of your choice! The winner will be randomly selected from comments and announced on the SS Blog on 4/28! Leave another comment that you've shared our hop on your Facebook page or blog for a 2nd chance to win!
