All Tied Up

Well, the weekend is nearly over me... oh dread.  I was happy to have made time this weekend to make a card for the latest challenge over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  The theme for the challenge:  Men, men, men, manly, men.

Even though Father's Day is upon us, this holiday has taken on a bittersweet meaning in my life because I lost my father over 7 years ago.  (When you have a great father - which he was - I miss him even more during such holidays.)  Yet, each year I am drawn to the Daddy's Girl digi image from the Tiddly Inks store to make a card for him in memoriam.  It is no surprise that I have chosen that image for this challenge. 

The dies are from Spellbinders sets: ovals & ties.  The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug, & the paper is from My Mind's Eye.
Closer look at the colored image.
She's just too adorable to resist, dressing up in her daddy's clothes.  I can relate, but who didn't play "dress up" as a little kid!

Thanks for taking a look at my latest card cr8'ion!

Happy Cr8'ing!
