dad's day and fwf

Howdy and happy Friday!
Today's the hubster's last day of school (finally) so summer really feels like it's about to begin.

Plus, this Sunday is Father's Day...though my dad is out of town and my FIL will be recovering from a serious case of jet lag, so it's doubtful that we'll actually celebrate on the day itself. The cards, however, will be more or less on time -- and here's one of them:

 no, that is absolutely NOT a pizza box behind my card.... ;)

I love a good pun, don't you? The plaid background is actually hand-stamped using a Papertrey Ink set (love those colors - grey, gold, rust, ocean blue), die-cut and popped up on the card base, but that focal point is all Unity, baby.


I combined the chair and "you rock" sentiment from this set, and the "dad" from this set to make a cute little 4-bar dad card (would be good for a bday too, don't you think?).

Since it's Friends with Flair Friday, you know there are some great deals to be had over on the Unity site, so check 'em out!

In other Unity news, I'll be your Growing in Unity gal all next week, so if you like what you see, be sure to check back M-F next week for cards and layouts using Unity stamps...plus, you could win some free stamps for yourself! Yay!

Masculine cards are so difficult for me - yours is amazing - the plaid background is perfect! I'm visiting today as a result of Cath's Moxie Fab World post recently to visit some of the blogs in her blog roll, and I'm glad your # came up for me!
