Quick Quotes Father's Day Inspiration

Marcia here today to host the Quick Quotes blog. I am suppose to share some Father's Day inspiration with you, but I have been recently reminded that not all of us have our Fathers anymore. And for a friend of mine whose 14 year old son committed suicide, some people are no longer Fathers. I made this project with my friend in mind (Thanks Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) for inspiring me with your wine tag)   ...
Our focus in June is on vellum, so I used vellum to create the rolled flowers, inking the edges with Powderpuff ink. I also used vellum to create my little butterflies which are also inked. The vellum really gives them a delicate look. The larger butterfly is a Quick Quotes chipboard piece finished with Powderpuff ink as well. Here is another view from the top...
Quick Quotes supplies:
Dreamscape 300
Dreamscape 500
Butterflies - Bag o'Chips
Powderpuff ink in Purple Passion, Very Berry, Biscotti, and Blue Moon

Other supplies:
Hero Arts pearls
Sizzix butterfly paddle punch
Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms

Is there someone you know who could use a friend to talk to, or anyone you want to share some good memories and a bottle of wine with? Wishing all of you a very Happy Father's Day!!


  1. For one of my dearest friends, this past Mother's Day was the first one since her oldest child had died last August. I made sure I let her know what a wonderful mother she was to her other three children. These holidays can be so difficult for so many. I like what you said here regarding that. The project is lovely.


I love hearing what you think!
