CS Father's Day Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us!

Father's Day, a holiday which honors fathers worldwide, is celebrated in the United States on the third Sunday of June. It originated in the United States in 1910, a few years after the country began celebrating Mother’s Day. Father’s Day became an official U.S. holiday in 1972.

If you would like to read some more interesting history about Father's Day then visit this
I found it quite interesting!

You should have arrived here from Cassie (Scrappin Place)'s blog!

 If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go back to the start of the top of the hop at
Chris (Get Inspired With Chatterscene)'s blog to start so you don't miss any of the projects. There is  Blog Candy offered so you want to start at the beginning and read how to participate to win.

This card was made using the Cricut Circle sketch.
It is for my husband from my boys.
Here is the sketch used:

It says, "The bumps in the road just make the ride more fun."

My hubby was just telling me yesterday that he wants a motorcycle. Not sure I like that idea. Your card is cute.

This is a great card. It would be perfect for my son or brother-in-law, both of whom ride motorcycles. I was the haul you made from the scrapbook expo in Arlington and sure wish I could have gone now!I'm sure it was awesome.
