For my card today I went ‘old school' and made myself a little shaving shelf with the Birch and Cherry Wood Cardstock from Altenew.

I stamped and coloured my images from the Best Dad set with Prismacolor pencils and then simply die cut them out with the co-ordinating dies.

I kept it very clean & simple and added a sentiment from the Beautiful Lady stamp set.

My Dad has taught my many invaluable life lessons, but one the one I think of most often is “everything in moderation.” Too often I sway from one extreme to another, be it eating, spending money, time management, etc, but this saying always helps me find balance in my life. It’s a lesson I’m passing onto my kids as well.

Lovely card, thank you for sharing! I feel the most important lessons that my father taught me was firstly to be honest, to one’s own self, to others, in every thing, dealing, conversations; and secondly to be value people and all forms of life. May God bless him with health and may he live to see all his children happily settled. Ameen.

My father taught me that drinking can cause many problems for you and the families who live with a drinker.

Wonderful card. My father has been my role model. I learned to deal with people with kindness.

My Dad tauht me how to tie my shoes and I remember vividly trying it over and over again to get it right. This taught me to persevere…a lesson that has kept me going through challenging times.

Growing up as child there were times when I didn’t see my Father for three to five days at a time. He was what is now considered work – aholiç. When He was home he was strict about how things were done. Some what of a perfectionist. But through all that; He taught me good work ethics. Work hard, and do the best possible job you can. Ya see, My Dad wasn’t very Educated. He was a manual labor type of person. He wasn’t famous. But he could of been. A talent scout from Hollywood, CA. Wanted he to try out for a part when I was three. But he also believed in family first and he wanted to do the right thing. He often wondered if he made a difference in his life or the lives of others. He definitely made a difference in mine. He passed away on November 23, 2014. Love u Daddy. Happy Father’s Day. This day was always special to us. Because I was born on Father’s Day.

Love your Card. The card really brought back a memory with my Dad. Dad also had the Razor , Cup and Brush that he used everyday. I would use the same sink to wash my baby dolls. Dad caught me washing them with his brush . He expressed his disapproval. But I insisted I always use his brush for this task. My life lesson was to always respect other people’s property and ALWAYS ask permission.

Simple but very manly look, perfect for Dad! Keep on sharing ideas! Love them all!

I was adopted when I was just 2 months old. I remember my dad (and my mom too) would tell me when I was little but old enough to understand that I didn’t come from My mommy’s tummy that I wasn’t given up, I was chosen. My dad said that they went into the nursery and there were all kinds of babies in there but as soon as they saw me they knew I was special so they chose me over all the other babies. Although it’s not exactly true it works for me! I was always Daddy’s little girl ❤

Love this card and very nice stamp set ! I would say that my dad (and my mother too) taught me a lot about life but above all that we have to be happy with what we have, even if it is few, and to thank God for every day He gives us ! So I would say Carpe Diem and be happy !

Love your Dad’s day card. I still have my father’s shaving kit with the mug and soap in it. I was always fascinated watching him shave and he would take the blade out and let me pretend that I was shaving with him. Happy memories! Thanks for sharing!

My Daddy thought me that building self confidence by appreciation of hard work by parent is most important for child who discovers his abilities. My Dad loves every of my craft work, thats make me want to create new things. Knowing how important it is cherishing, support and approval, I do for my daughter what did years ago for me my beloved Dad. Thanks to him I am today crafter- amateur :)

My father, may him rest in peace, has taught me how to learn and seek knowledge, which is the greatest give I’ve ever been given.

My dad has taught me lots of invaluable things. He taught me to be honest, to be just, to be kind and caring. He always taught us to be respectful of others regardless of who they are. These are things I am now teaching my children. Thank you for the chance to win. X

I Love every one of your sets! What a fabulous Company!

I lost my father after he battled Diabetes and it caused him to have a heart attack over 10 years ago. Over the years, my Daddy taught me so much. I was always doing some DIY project around the house with him, or working with him in my parents business. He came to most of my High school basketball, football (cheerleading) and softball games to root me on when he wasn’t too sick. When I joined the Coast Guard he was so proud of me and sent letters, emails, money and care packages and we spoke as often as we could! No matter what, this man was so fiercely proud of me and he loved me. Now that I am battling the same disease and complications, I understand how much he really did love me. I am in pain, miserable and sick most days – just like he was – but he always let me know that he was there and that he was proud of me. My Son is 6, and I hope that when the day comes, he knows how much momma loved him. I guess I am saying that with his life I learned and felt great love and when he passed I learned the importance of telling the ones you love just how much they mean to you.
