Here's an easy one for you! A simple one-layer father's day card. This card was inspired by Dawn's color challenge.

The inside reads:

the love of a
FATHER
is one of nature's
greatest
MASTERPIECES

We received great news yesterday! Mac and I were commissioned to photograph Susan G. Komen's Circle of Life presence at the Essence festival in New Orleans in a couple of weeks! How great is that? You should have seen us when we got off the phone. Oh those times are when you wish someone was recording to see our joy, laughter, and excitement because it was darn right funny! So, remember those Race for the Cure pictures we took on the National Mall a couple of weeks ago? Well, they are the reasons we will be able to photograph them at the Essence festival. We hope to see/photograph/meet some celebrities too!

Want to look at more of McArthur's pictures? Click here for some new creative (story-telling) shots. Also, he appreciates all of the comments he has received from you all regarding his pictures. He gets all happy when you all go to see them!

Thanks so much for stoppin by and enjoy your day!

Love this for a "Dad" card! I struggle w/masculine cards (for adult men particularly), but you seem to have mastered it!

Hey - kudos to your hubby for the SGK opportunity in New Orleans! Will you all be staying for the festivities? I'm pretty sure hubby and I will be there - it would be awesome to say "Hi!" in person! :-)

I've had Trendy Trees since it came out, but I'm embarrassed to say I haven't inked it up yet.

I love how you used the stamps and framed it with the Copic marker. Thanks for the inspiration!

That's cool that the race is in New Orleans; I thought it was in D.C. What a great opportunity.
