My Dad’s a Tool

Hello! I’m taking a break from seasonal cards to share a Dad card. This is a fun way to be creative with your stamps; often the image can resemble a letter. In this case the tape measure is rotated to form a ‘d’. I’m going to use this as a Father’s Day card, but it could just as easily be for a birthday or other special dad moment.

Thanks for looking! Spicey Cat Chick =^..^=
masculine card with a tie on it – does my ‘tied’ knot count?
use a quotation and image that fits it, my quote ‘love beyond measure’ certainly applies to my dad

  4. Hi Cat - what a great idea to turn stamps into letters ... must look at my collection and see what "letters" I actually have! Love the colours you've used too. Thanks for joining in last week’s challenge at The Crafty Pad, and I’m sorry I’m late in commenting … life kind of overtook me!
