Father's Day

I know. Father's Day was over a month ago. I was a bit busy getting ready for Convention and have not had time to post for a while. Just wait till i post my Mother's Day cards. Any How. Here are the cards and mini scrapbook that I made for my Dad FIL and husband. Of course my husband got the mini book.
 I am not used to making masculine cards and have very little in the way of masculine themed papers. I found this black and cream colored paper in my stash along with the black "silk shamus" paper. I got them years ago before I was a SU Demonstrator and could not bare to get rid of them. Good thing too, they did just the trick. The ribbon is not from SU. I got it off a pair of pajamas that I got myself during the holidays. Yes, I saved the ribbon that it came wrapped in. It was to nice to toss. Any how... I wrapped the cards with the ribbon and used the jumbo eyelets from SU, now discontinued, sniff sniff. I also used the Big Shot and Serif Essentials dies to cut the letters. I then rounded the corners and BAM! masculine cards.  The mini book also had mini vintage brads and library clips and linen thread from SU. Yes, I misspelled "special." Not just once but twice :) I do know how to spell that word, I promise. I did fix it later. "Besides," I told my husband, "it is not a Joanna original if something isn't misspelled."
