Happy Father's Day to all fathers today including my wonderful husband!! He is a great father, husband and especially friend! On a personal note, my husband reminds me of my own father who was a terrific dad. My dad has been gone now 1 1/2 years and I miss him everyday. Love you Dad!!

My sister, Chris (figaro) gave me this idea for 2 more graduation cards that I needed. Ian and Patrick are twin brothers graduating from high school. I thought they would get a kick out of these cute caps! The sentiment is from SU. I just love how they came out! You can find the instructions here. I found the tassels at a store in Bath, Maine called Tate's. Thanks for stopping by.

http://sarahsinkspot.com/blog/2009/06/u-rock-guitar-card-2.html I used a glitter paper for the guitar so that Alan could feel it. The strings are the gold metallic string from SU which I wrapped around brads at the top and base of the guitar. The card size is 8 x 7 inches. When you open up the card I made the piano from Lynn Pratt (you can go to her blog from my blog, her button is to the left of my blog). She is so talented! I made my own dimensions from her picture to fit my card. The white keys are 4 x 5 1/2 and I drew black lines every 1/2 inch. I scored twice on each side at the 1/2 inch mark. The black keys are measured 5/16 of an inch by 2 1/2 inch and scored the same way only at 1/4 of an inch mark. Then place the black keys in the middle of the black line on the white keys. The sentiment "You rock!" is done in gold embossing powder so that Alan could feel it. There is a lot of texture in this card so I hope Alan enjoys it.

I used the SU scallop punch for the wings and the curly label for the bottom part of the graduation hat. I free hand the top part of the graduation hat. I know you can use the penant punch from SU but I didn't have it. The DP is from SU and I am sorry but I can't remember the name of it. The banner is from Spellbinders and the sentiment is SU "congrats". Always have fun using the owl punch from SU! Thanks for looking!
