If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG152 so we can check out your beautiful work!

I was cracking up when I read all of the little sayings in this fun background stamp from Dadisms - seriously - "Don't come running to me if you cut your legs off."  Hahaha!  Is that morbid or what??  Made me think of all the silly things my dad said to us growing up and there are quite a few of them in this set. I stamped the image and the background stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black and then paper pieced his chair with paper from A Walk in the Park from Echo Park. The layout is Clean & Simple Stamping's FTL167.

Hop on over to the There She Goes blog for more Dad inspiration.  Father's Day will be here before you know it, so why not get a jump start?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
