For Dad….

My Father has been gone for many many years and neither of my children ever got to meet him or be surrounded by his love.  And even after all these years (approx. 52) I still miss him. But, I do have some wonderful and loving  memories of him – one of those being spending time together in the garden – planting and weeding, catching dragonflies on my finger and marveling at that beautiful quiet iridescence. I’m sure that is why, along with birds ~ gardening and dragonflies are amongst my very most favorite things in life.

A few cards for Father’s Day and some for any occasion for the men in our lives. I’m hooking up to The Kraft Journal for the use of Kraft cardstock (many of these are based on the Kraft cardstock as well), Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge #62 for Father’s Day, and Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #73 Masculine with Ribbon or Trim.
