Dustin's Father's Day Card

I struggled for a long time with Dustin's Father's Day card. I am not great at making masculine cards, it's just not my thing. Also, I don't really have stamps of anything that Dustin likes.

I went to Michael's today and searched all over for monkeys or computers in anything. There were none! No stickers, stamps, paper, etc... All they had were lame foam stamps and I really don't like using those very much. I was at a loss. I had no idea what to do.

I came home and tried to force myself to make a card. I tried to make one using my Penguin Dude, but I am not happy with it. So, after searching the internet for ideas, I decided to make a photo card. Well, duh! How did that not occur to me?

This card is pretty simple. I just picked out the pictures, sized them, and gave them a frame based on a color I selected from Dustin's shirt in the main picture. The text is also a color I got from Dustin's shirt. It was simple and easy and I'm very happy with it. Hopefully, Dustin will like it too. Now I just have to figure out what the card from Brady will be. Oy!
