Father's Day Card
 I made this card for my Dad for Father's Day, the paperdoll of my Dad is from the Cricut cartridge "Paperdolls For Everyday", the face is a Peachy Keen stamp from the PK-490 Everyday Paperdoll Face Assortment and I used my white gel pen to color in the whites of the eyes. The 4 blocks represent things that Dad and I do together, the coffee cup is a svg files I got for free (do not remember where), Dad comes almost every morning and we have coffee together (He is responsible for the fact that I am now addicted to Percolated coffee now), the gardening tools and the sign are both also from the "Paperdolls for Everyday" Cricut cartridge, Dad and I, along with my friend Louise go "yarding" (go to yard sales) most Saturday mornings, we started this last year because I was up with Doodlebug anyway and the garden tools are representative of all of the help Dad gives my in my garden. The "Dad" (which I don't love) is from a set of individual letter stamps that I have had so long they are hard, but I didn't have a Dad stamp (I will next year! LOL). The purple and green papers are Bazzill and the patterned is from my stash. The "thanks so much" is from the "Stamping" Cricut cartridge and inside the card I thanked Dad for all that he does for me, including loving me! Dad loves his card and told me he kept it, that means the world to me!
 A close up view of my Dad, the Paperdoll LOL.

I also wanted to post a pic of my garden, this (and Jeremy) take most of my time, along with all of the regular household chores that we all have. I have already started canning, I have canned 48 quarts of beans, 5 pints of Dill pickles, 6 quarts of tomatoes and 15 pints (1 batch) of salsa, and I am only just getting started LOL
Have great day Everyone!!

Eileen,
I hate to be mean but I can't share the salsa recipe, it is my Mom's secret recipe and I had to promise I would not share it in order to get it myself! And she is my Mom! LOL You probably don't want it anyway, it takes forever to make but my Husband loves it so I make it. Sorry.

Wow Tammy! This card is so creative with the little squares, what a fun way to show Dad you love him. The colors are so pretty! And your garden... I am so jealous. That's the thing about going to KY and VA each summer, my Olivia just loves to garden with her Grammy.
