Hello, Stampers! This is my first “hop” and I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am by being a participant. I am Traci Raether of Plum Crazy Stamping. I have been stamping for more than twenty years and I love making cards. The best part of the Father’s Day Card Blog Hop is all of the wonderful ideas to use for making your own Father’s Day cards.

Father's Day card

I will be using the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set with the new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. I will also be using Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue cardstock since they are my husband’s favorite colors.
