I had a lot of fun in my craft room for Father's Day this year. :)
This first card I made for my dad. He likes to golf and I had this card pinned on a board of mine, and decided it would be perfect for him. The sentiment is on the inside of the card (and I didn't take a picture of it.)
I used a retired set for the "9" (Look Who's turning) and some retired paper (the cloud background).
I love the versatility of the Pennant Parade set (it is used for the trees and the banner) and the coordinating punch (that punched out the banner and the trees). Who wants to cut stuff out by hand when you can use a punch!?

This card I made for my husband. I also saw something like it on Pinterest or somewhere...I can't find it now. I just spent about 30 minutes looking... Oh well, just know that I didn't come up with the idea completely on my own, but I didn't copy everything exactly either.

This last card I made for my Father-in-law. He is known for grilling so I decided to make him a grill. Again I got this idea from Pinterest. You can see the original card here! Turns out I didn't have a few of the punches she used so I had to improvise a little.
