Family Man

A friend of mine needed a Father's Day card recently. The description that I was given was that he is an engineer and a family man. Since I don't own an engineering Fella, I opted to go with the Grillafella....grilling, family, fun....they all kind of go together, right?

First I stamped my Fella in StazOn, and then I coloured him with coloured pencils and blended him with OMS. I stitched the stamped image onto a navy blue cardstock with my sewing machine. The plaid patterned paper was from my scrap bin....and I can't remember where it originally came from. The wide maroon grosgrain is value ribbon from Michael's The sentiment stamp is from the SU! Circle of Friendship stamp set. The tab was made with a tab punch and the 'dad' was spelled out with Alphabitties stickers.

The buttons are random buttons that I found in my Mom's old sewing stuff. If I know my mother, they probably came from my grandmother's house 40 years ago. So I can't confirm their origin! LOL

And, here is a close up of my little Grillafella.

Thanks for stopping by today, and make sure to scroll back a couple of posts and leave me a comment in order to have a chance to win some blog candy!!
