Happy belated Father's Day everyone! I hope everyone had a great Father's Day, we certainly did. We were childless but we had a nice time together as a couple and of course the kids called to wish their Father a Happy Father's Day.
I decided to wait to show the card I made for my husband till after Father's Day because I never know who is snooping on my blog and I don't want him to see it beforehand. I think it's such a generic masculine card it could be used for any event for a guy and not just Father's Day.
The stamp set is an old retired set from Stampin' Up! called "Thoughts of Father". I just love this set. They just don't make stamps like they use to and I'm very grateful I still own a lot of these old sets.
Because the image is so intricate I used pencils to color it in. I used designer paper for the background and then matted the main image base onto a dark blue paper. I chose all the colors and papers to keep the card as masculine as possible.
The inside of the card is stamped with a Father's Day message, but this card could easily be turned into a birthday card with a different message stamped inside.
And now for some Father's Day pictures. We first went to church. Yes, our church is open. Some people seemed surprised by that when I posted these pictures to Facebook. Our church reopened at 40% capacity about four weeks ago. Our democrat governor illegally extended our lockdown so the republican legislature took him to the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the judges ruled the lockdown illegal because the governor did not consult with the state legislature. Our church then reopened two weeks later following CDC guidelines. It is wonderful being back with the church body again and experiencing corporate worship. I will never take going to church for granted again!
After church we took advantage of all the "freebies" the local restaurants had to offer for Father's Day. First we went to Arby's where all father's got a free sandwich of their choice. The dining room of the Arby's was still closed so we had to use the drive thru. At first we were bummed, but it ended up being a a good thing because we found a sweet local park we didn't know about. I googled local parks on my phone and found a park only about a mile from the Arby's where we could eat our lunch. It was such a cute park with a little bridge and creek. There was a nice trail to that we hope to hike in the fall.
After our picnic lunch we went to Culvers for a free Father's Day ice cream. Their dining room was open, (at a smaller capacity) so we took advantage of it. It was the first time we sat down inside a restaurant since this nightmare began. It's still weird with half the tables and chairs gone, the workers wearing masks, and all the "stand here" signs, cones, and tape, but it's better than the dining room being closed.
So there you have it, how we celebrated another holiday in our Covid world. How was your Father's Day? I'd love to hear from you!
Have A Great Day! Amy
