Only a Dad

Only a dad, with a tired face,
Coming home from the daily race,
Bringing little of gold or fame,
To show how well he has played the game,
But glad in his heart that his own rejoice
To see him come, and to hear his voice...
Only a dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small,
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The deeds that his father did for him.
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, but the best of men.

The Craft's meow

This set, called Let's Face It, by Nina B. for the The Craft's Meow May Previews is so much fun! There's really nothing like it out there in stampland.

Going with another clean and simple card, I embossed a card base in chevron to provide some interest in my simple composition. I used a banner from Good Times and a sentiment included in the new set. Then I added the collar and used a tie die cut for a bit of dimension. So simple and fresh, in my opinion.

There are some new designers showcasing their stuff for The Craft's Meow. Please be sure to stop by for a visit at the Blog and the Designer's Blogs. You've got a chance to win this beautiful set for free!
