I Miss You, Dad

Many weeks ago I finished making Father's Day cards to send to OWH because they need the cards so early for mailing, but I continue to make masculine cards and cards for dads because those are needed all year.  As I planned out a few cards using Diane's Daydream Designs, one sentiment caught my eye - "I miss you, Dad"  Perfect sentiment for OWH cards, but it also stood out because I miss my dad.  He has been in Heaven for four years and I still miss him.
The images (pre-colored) and paper are by Diane's Daydream Designs.  I cut buttons out with a die.  I really like using this for OWH cards because they are so flat; I don't have to worry about the thickness of real buttons.

The sketch I used is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week:

Crafting from the Heart - anything
Papertakes - anything
Sweet Stamps - ribbon (twine) and buttons
Word Art Wednesday - anything
Simon Wednesday - masculine

Sister Act - anything
