Wow !...It's the first day of June already ! 
The year is going by so fast ! 
I finally got around to making my hubbie's Father's Day Card. 
I wanted to come up with the perfect card for my DH who is such a super husband, father and grandpa :) I think I was successful ! He really likes photography and one day would like to have an awesome camera, I'm hoping I might be able to get him one 
this year but they are really expensive!
Using my Gypsy and the Create A Critter cart, I made a camera shaped card. To make it look a bit more authentic, I used a silver marker and acetate to give the illusion of a real lens, some chalking for depth, brads and the sentiment to look like the camera brand and the power button. The whole thing reminded me of a vintage camera so I added some stitching all around since cameras back in the day used to be covered in leather and sewed on. I forgot to take a picture of the inside, but it says..
"Wishing you a "picture perfect" Father's Day!"
Wish me luck on that camera shopping :) Oh ! and I still had enough time to enter it in the MPS Father's Day Card Challenge !
Whew! I just made it, only 22 minutes left til the deadline!
