My Dad's The Greatest Blog Hop -- & a chance to win a prize from the Scrapping actuary!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to "My Dad's the Greatest Blog Hop".

Today we are honouring our Dads, Grandfathers, Uncles, and Big Brothers... Whoever made a significant, loving mark in your life :)

Do you remember your father being so big in your eyes, that he could protect you from anything? He was the one who would barbecue or mow the grass. He would go off to work every day and come home tired and still make time to laugh and play. He didn't mind that every Father's Day, he got a tie or slippers. He was our protector!!

Today we have some wonderful, talented women who would like to show that their Dad is the Greatest! In case you get lost the hop starts at Pamela ~

We will have Blog Candy -- a fun stamp set from Tim Holtz “Life’s a Journey” to one lucky winner that leaves a comment on every blog.

And ... one lucky hopper who becomes a follower of my blog (or who is already a follower :) will win the following prize from me, the Scrapping Actuary!  (I'll be posting the winner of this on Tuesday!)

And for this hop today, I am going to share two Father's Day Cards that I have created.

My first card is here to prove that sparkly letters and ribbon can be masculine too!

I toned down the more feminine accents by using brass metallic accents.

And this card should prove that you can also use a flower on a masculine card!

This sticker from Authentique was originally set up using "brother" ... but I took advantage of the "father" sticker and made it work for my purposes!

Thanks for stopping by. Now I must send you over to Monica to see what fabulous project she has in store for you!
Don’t forget, to qualify for the grand prize, you must leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop.
Happy Hopping!!
(& thanks for stopping in!)
