Pals Blog Hop

If you've hopped over from Joanna Munster's blog, Inspired by Stampin', I'm stop number 6 on the PALS HOP and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find inspirational ideas for papercrafted creations from Mary Fish's Stampin' Pretty Pals! We'll showcase all that Stampin' Up! has to offer for two important occasions, Father's Day and Graduation! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP below and you'll be back on track! We're thrilled to have you visit and excited to hear what you think about our hop! Please feel free to leave as many comments as you'd like along the way!

My card today is a Father's Day card.  I'm a "daddy's girl" and you'd think that would make it easier to create a card, but I hit a wall with this one.  I finally called in my super-creative and talented photographer husband, Matt, to help me.   He helped me pick a stamp and a color scheme that was a little more masculine.  Thanks, honey!  We'll be making this card at my next PMS Night (Pizza, Music and Stampin')

More inspiring ideas await you at Martha Stewart's site, Seasons of Stamping, stop number #7 on the PALS HOP! Hop over and see Martha's wonderfully creative ideas (apparently there's more than one Martha Stewart that can craft)! Thanks for "hopping" by!
