A Timeless Father's Day card

Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's who deserve special treatment today...........especially my hubby Frank who is the best Daddy in all the world to our three children as well as to our grand kids.

This card was made using a Tim Holtz Timepiece Clock as the focal image.  I love how jute just seems to go perfectly with the Kraft paper.  The clock represented my Timeless love for my hubby.  We've been married almost 40 years (next month) & I'm so very blessed that he is my best friend.

I used some Recollections brads that resemble screws & the paper was from two 6x6 paper pads by My Mind's Eye called "The Sweetest Thing" and "Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing".  My hubby likes the more simple style so I tried not to add too much to it.  He loved it.
