Happy Father’s Day!

Good morning, my friends! 

Hope the morning is going well, and that breakfasts or brunches are happening for all the wonderful dads in our lives…quiche is on the menu for us today…Dad’s request!

I have a couple of cards to share with you today…


I made this one a couple of months ago for my Dad…just a little early (so unlike me!)  This has images from Crafty Secrets’ new “Car Classics” stamp set…and the main image is actually  my Dad! 

Here’s the one I made today for my dear husband…


A fun card using Crafty Secrets’ “Favorite Fella” stamp set…a great argyle print from Graphic 45, some ribbon, buttons, crystal rhinestones for the crown (of course!), and just a bit of platinum Stickles…I can’t even stay away from it for a man card!

I just want to take a few minutes now and share with you a few of the most important men in my life…

Roger, Julie & Chelsea Campbell, 1990 
Our first official family portrait with our little Chelsea (now in college!)—my time flies!



And in later years…Not quite sure what Annie’s thinking here…!

I’m a very lucky woman…not only is Roger a wonderful husband, but he’s such a loving father…his girls adore him!

My Dad…Clayn…holding me…a new Daddy. 

Storytime with Daddy, 1967-68

Story time with Dad…we always loved Dad’s stories…he read them so well; but our favorite times were when he made up stories for us—wonderful adventures that we called “tummy stories”—as we thought they just came out of his tummy…sweet memories!

Are you still with me?  Thanks for indulging me in this little stroll through time…some of the very special Dads in our family…

I hope your Father’s Day is filled with every beautiful  thing today…make some wonderful memories!

Roger…Dad…I love you!  Thank-you both for being the wonderful fathers that you are!
