Father's Day cards for my uncles...

My own father passed away in 2000, so now I like to send Father's Day cards to my two remaining uncles. I remember them when they were just young men. I thought they were the handsomest, most dashing guys on earth!

Here's the card I made for them this year:
I found this trophy on the All Sports cartridge. It actually has the silhouette of a baseball player that is supposed to go with it, but I simply left that out and added some sparkly letter stickers to spell out "All-Star Uncle," instead.

I used a Lifestyle Crafts die to cut out a few small stars to add because it just looked so plain and unremarkable without them.

The decorative strip on the inside was punched with a Martha Stewart punch called "Double Link Trim."  I thought it nicely mirrored the pattern of the DSP on the front of the card.

I hope my uncles enjoy these cards and know how much they are loved.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Wonderful cards and I am sure your Uncles will love them. I lost my Dad in 2005 and my Uncle this past year.
