Verve-y Father's Day!

Hello!  I finally sat down today and made a Father's Day card for my dad.  My dad is a pastor at a church that is right on the beach.  The sanctuary has huge windows, and while you are sitting in there you can see out to the ocean~gorgeous!!!  He's really trimmed down in the last couple of years and one of his favorite things to do is to walk on the beach:) 

For my card I used the Verve set Relax for the palm tree and surf boards.  The sentiment is a Verve Plain Jane.  The dp is Best Creation Inc and it's called Surf's Up.  I matted the dp with some Night of Navy cs, added some stitching, the twine, and some pearls to the palm tree and called it good:)  The sketch is from this week's Friday Sketchers.  This is also for this week's A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge~Enjoying the Sunshine.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I'm feeling a little better, so hopefully this cold won't get too bad.  Have a wonderful afternoon:)
