Prairie Fairy Friday - For the Dads!

It's time for another Prairie Fairy Friday!

This week for Prairie Fairy Friday, the challenge is an easy one (especially for those who have been putting of those Father's Day card) because this week, we're asking you to make something For Dad! Father's Day is only a couple of days away and hopefully you've already made a card for that special dad in your life.  Mine is out of the country so I've already sent him his card.  This card is still for a dad, but just not for Father's Day :)  My card uses the ever-so-cute Lewis with his big old glasses and those freckly cheeks!  I used Diamond Glaze on his glasses and it looks pretty cool in person, but my poor camera didn't pick it up very well.  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Stamps Circle Postmarks set.

Make sure to head over to the Prairie Fairy Friday blog to check out all the wonderful For Dad cards created by the design team!
