Happy Father's Day!

Hello everyone,
hope you all had a great weekend!
No I'm not crazy or extremely early 
to celebrate Father's Day
May 9th is Father's Day or Vatertag in Germany.
I made this card for my Dad or 
"Opa" as we call him at home.

 The card was very simple and easy to make.
Lots of laying and just a few stamped images.
 The little envelope was cut 
with the Cricut "Wild Card" cartridge. 
Happy German Father's Day
to all you Dads and Opas out there!

Shhhh... don't tell my husband
but he is a rake short in the garage!
Actually he already knows!!!
His first questions was, when I showed him our 
new door wreath,
"Were did you get that rake from???" 
I told him not to worry, 
I just borrowed it for a little wile.
Since I just took the screw out and
slid it of the handle,
plus it's just hot glued to the wreath,
no harm done.
So in the fall when I switch wreath he probably 
will get his rake back. 
I think it looks just grand hanging on our front door.
What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping in!
Hope you all have a great start to the workweek!


  1. I was proud of myself for starting a Memorial Day decoration, but you have already jumped to Father's Day.

    What a cute card.

  2. That's a fabulous wreath! A much better use of a rake than just sitting in the garage doing nothing :-) Well done!

  3. Lovely card for your Opa! My in-laws are German, so my son and daughter have an Oma and Opa. I didn't realize Germany had Father's day in May.Cool! Love your wreath too,it's very cute! I guess your hubby will get his rake back just in time to rake the fall leaves!LOL

  4. What a beautiful card for your Opa! Stunning!

  5. I think it looks great...I may have to steal ours too!
