Link Up the Love Party

I am an avid follower of Getting Cricky with K Andrew as many of you know. Kristal "K" is one of the sweetest people I know! She truly believes in everyone! She is such a great cheerleader and speaker of goodwill, I'm so fortunate to have her in my life and consider her a friend! This week she is hosting her monthly Link Up the Love Party. This fun little party is all about connecting with new people and spreading the LOVE! There are so many talented people around us in this world and its fun to get to know them. Sending a little love and making people smile is such a spirit lifter form me, I know I LOVE  reading all the comments on my blog! Kristal also has a challenge every other Sunday called Simply Sunday. This week the challenge is called Retro Daddy. I have created a second card for this challenge because I have more than one Dad in my life.
First the details about the Link Up the Love Party:
(copied from K's blog)
Link Up Love Party: How it Works

*Link Up Party runs from Tuesday 5/17 to Tuesday 5/24. Winners announced 5/25
*Grab my blinkie and post on your blog
*Be a follower of this blog
*Create a new blog post that is titled Link Up Love Party with K Andrew. In your post, you must mention that the link up love party is a way to get to know each other and find new blog inspiration, mention my blog, with a link back to my blog .
*Post your favorite project that you've done in your blog post
*Copy and paste the link up code into your blog post so the Inlinkz will show up on your blog
*Spread the word so everyone can join in!
*You must visit, follow, and comment on the 5 people before you AND the 5 people after you in the Inlinkz. It would be fantastic if you would visit as many as you can--maybe everyone? If you are one of the first 5 then you will need to blog the ones before you and a few more after--as long as it's a minimum of 10 near you in the link up tool/gadget)
If you do not do the above your link will be deleted, because it's just not fair to those who work so hard linking up and showing love to the ones on the list. I have a moderator who will be checking this out to keep it awesome and fun!


Now the card for my father-in-law :)
I LOVE how this card turned out it is perfect for the retro theme of the challenge :)

 Card details:
Main Image: found online (sorry I don't know where)
Die cuts: Spellbinders
Stamps: Unity Stamp Co.
Dp: My Mind's Eye Lime-twist
Embossing powders: American Crafts
Inks: Colorbox and Momento

 Thanks for looking today! Make sure you come back tomorrow, I have a SUPER EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! (I'm about to pee my pants I want to tell so bad)
