Dapper Father's Day Card

When my hubby and I each retired we found ourselves still working hard, just without the usual salary and doing other work than before. The sentiments on this paper caught my attention for a fun Father's Day card for my busy, hard-working husband. Summer is his busiest time on the farm where we live, even though he doesn't farm the land like his father.

I used this sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge #516:

 My hubby should like the additional sentiment: "Handsome and hardworking. Yes, that sounds about right." The paper is from Authentique's  "Dapper" and Basic Grey and the Father's Day Stamp is retired from CTMH.

I used leftover pieces to make the inside more interesting!

Thank you for visiting! May you also find ways to bless the guys in your life as we celebrate Father's Day this month.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Isaiah 55:10-11 (WEB)
10 For as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky, and doesn’t return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11 so shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing I sent it to do.
