Tool Cool

Popping in to share my Father-in-law's Father's Day card.  He's a very handy guy (I make lists of things that need to be fixed when they come to visit), so I think he'll really like this.

I used an oval cutting template to trace a curve on my cardstock, and then used that as a guide for stamping the screwdriver and wrench images.

The sentiment actually has an exclamation point at the end so that it stands alone, but I thought it would be fun to add the thickers to create a new sentiment. 

Pretty simple, although you wouldn't know it since I managed to stamp it about five times to get everything nice and straight and lined up.

Hope your weekend is going well.  June has been a whirlwind month around here, and I was a bit under the weather at the beginning of the week, so I feel like I am WAY behind.  The good news is that we are ready for Father's Day and my sister is in town this weekend, so we are getting a date night to boot!
