Cut it Up – Tie for Father’s Day

CIU challenge blogIn just a few short weeks, it will be Father’s Day so Cut it Up Challenges is using the theme Ties for Father’s day for this challenge.

My son is a marine and will be deployed in September.  When he’s away I like to send him a card every week, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity for me to get started.  He really likes to get dressed up and go out and has been in several weddings, so I thought this tuxedo card from My Scrap Chick’s Man Cards set would be a good match for this challenge.

About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper and wool, and that's what I'm currently working with.

    Love It! And, that lapel looks like fabric…wow! What a wonderful thing you are doing when your son is deployed. I must try and join the challenge. I just got my hard drive up and running last night, but still have a few things to download again before I start catching up. Whew…1.5 weeks without a computer!
