Happy Father's Day!

Well, I kind of have most things up and running on my new computer so I am able to post today...WOO HOO! Luckily my camera was compatible with Vista, and my printer just needed a new driver which I was easily able to DL. Still have to reload most of the programs however. I've been so busy working outside that I haven't had to much time to do that yet.

Since it is Father's Day today I thought I would share the card I made for my Dad with you. Coincidentally this card uses all sets that are either retired or soon will be. This morning Stampin' Up! released their list of stamp sets that will be retiring when this catalog ends. If you haven't seen the list, you can check it out here. One of my favorite background stamps- Weathered (used here) is on the list. So is Wildlife Reserve - the set that this bear image is from. Other sets used are: Fancy Flexible Phrases and Beauty of Life.

I inked the scene from Beauty of Life in Basic Brown ink and highlighted the pine trees with my Artichoke marker on the rubber. After I stamped the image I colored with a combo of inks and pastels. I then stamped the image a second time on Kraft card stock, water colored the log frame and cut it out. I popped that up on dimensionals. The bear was water colored and also popped up. I sized the card so it would fit into an extra Carousel Note envelope that I had left.

I hope you get to share the day with the special Father's you have in your life...enjoy!
