A Goodbye and Happy Father's Day!

Hello! Well, my two-week stint with LOTSA visitors is now over. (Waaa!) I hate seeing people go but since we will be heading to the east coast in a few weeks and will see them again---parting was not as sad this time.
This past week my sister Maureen was here. She has two children who are close in age to Cara so we had a blast. Here is a picture of us from the Riverwalk in San Antonio yesterday: We were hot and tired but I think you can see that we look a lot alike (despite the fact that she is waaaayyyy older than me. heehee!)


One of the things we did take time to do during the visit was to make a few father's day cards. I only pulled out a few stamps but we all made a card for our dads so we could get them in the mail. Here is the card I put together:
I used Sporty Accessories, Tee Talk and Not Forgotten stamp sets on this card. I wanted to focus on golf since that is what my dad likes to play---but I incorporated lots of sports on this because he likes to watch a lot of sports.
We had a great visit! Now I need a week long nap!!! lol!
Stay tuned: Gina K Designs sneak previews begin this week---lots of amazing new stamps will be added to the store on Thursday.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Father's Day!

You guys do look alot alike. Even before I read the post I said oh that must be her sister! Glad you had a nice time.

The card you made is perfect.

You both look young to me! Great card for Father's Day. I'm sure he'll love it! I'm so looking forward to the release and I'm bummed that I won't be able to make the party. So I'll have to make sure I see all the sneak peeks. Have a great week!

yes you do favor so much. I love to hear stories of family gatherings and stuff. I wish it could be like the Waltons. 3 or 4 generations all living together, learning from the young as well as from the old. Hav a beautiful weekend. The card so neat.
