Sunday Sketches Sailing Home Father's Day Card

Hello Stampers Patsy here for Border Buddy Sunday Sketches.

Today is Fathers Day!  Will you be able to spend the day with your Father or at least call him on the phone?  My father has been gone 15 years, sometimes it feels like yesterday and sometimes forever.  

When I first started my Stampin' Up! Business in 1998 and quit my "real" job as a nurse/optician I thought that my parents might be a bit disappointed.  But they were always a great support and interested in what I did.  After my dad passed my "uncle Bob" (my dad's cousin who just turned 99) mentioned how my Dad often told him how proud  he was of me and my business on several occasions.  

Stampin' Up!  2004 Alaskian Cruise

This is a photo of my parents Gene and Carol on my 2nd Stampin' Up! Incentive trip in 2004 to Alaska.  So special to have this memory on Fathers Day.  I was so blessed to have two amazing parents.  

Sunday Sketch Card using the Sailing Home stamp set Pansy Designer Paper and Smooth Sailing Dies and Painted Texture Embossing Folder by Stampin’ Up! (2)

When a new catalog comes out it is so easy to forget some of those favorite oldies but goodies.  Today I am going to share the card I made for my "Uncle Robert" using the Sailing Home Stamp Set.  He has encouraged and supported me since my parents have passed.  

Duluth Split Rock Tom and I

You might be surprised to learn Minnesota is home to 7 working light houses along Lake Superior.   Split Rock Light house might be the most well known and one of our favorite visiting spots.  Here is an 15+ old photo of Tom and I on a fall trip to the North Shore of Lake Superior and Split Rock Lighthouse in the background.  My love of this lighthouse makes any stamp set with a lighthouse almost a must.

Here is this weeks card sketch.  You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!
