This is one of my top favorite pictures of my top favorite guys. I never had a dad when I was little. Mine bailed when I was about 1. I am so fortunate that my mom met Bryce (Buzz) who helped her raise all 4 of us. This picture was taken at my oldest sons 4th birthday (he is now 10!). Sadly, Buzz passed away 2 years ago this Christmas, but not a day goes by that I don't think of him. His favorite saying has always been, "every day above ground is a good day!". 

Onto my project :


 I have been dying to use Jaded Blossoms Mustache Dies and thought Father's Day was a great time to do it! I cut out 2 layered labels with my silhouette. The bottom layer I had in my scraps and the white I inked the edges to match. I made the bow tie to match the bottom layer as well. I then used JB's Flag Die for my sentiment, cutting off the one side of it to fit my card base. I inked that as well to match everything. The sentiment is from JB's Love Mustaches stamp set. The inside is stamped with a sentiment from their Father's Day set. 

I used these cards for a Father's Day card swap I participated in. I forgot to take a picture of the envelope but I put a piece of Mustache washi tape along the bottom of it and used a little mustache stamp on the flap from JB's Love Mustache's set. (wish I took a picture of that...it came out so cute!)

Jaded Blossom Mustache Dies
Jaded Blossom Flag Dies
Jaded Blossom Love Mustaches
Jaded Blossom Father's Day
