OWH Midweek Throwdown - Father's Day

As most of you know, I make almost all of my cards for Operation Write Home who provides handmade cards to our military to use to keep in touch with family and friends while deployed.  That being said, this week's Midweek Throwdown is a Father's Day card.  Father's Day in April, you say?!  Yes!!!  Operation Write Home has to collect and re-distribute thousands of cards and get them overseas to be chosen,  written and mailed back home to the US in time for the holiday.  Soooo....our deadline to send Father's Day cards to our wonderfully hardworking OWH shippers is MAY 21, but the sooner the better so the shippers aren't scrambling at the last minute for enough cards to send in each box!

My latest Father's Day card uses the Stampin' Up set Loads of Love as well as the set Holiday Blitz for the sentiment.  I also used Bic marker and Stampin' Up watercolor pencils and blender pen to color the truck.  The paper came from my scrap stash!
