    Thank you so much for all of these links for Father’s Day stuff!! Can’t wait to look through all of these—I just get a kick out of how creative people are. The crafters out here always amaze me 🙂
    Thanks also for the My Favorite Things link (and also the discount code!!). There is so much out here on the net that sometimes I forget where I’ve seen something. I had been wanting to check out these new dies they have but I had forgotten the name of the company—I know, shame on me! Thanks again!!
