Memories in Tyme -Father's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Memories in Tyme blog hops - where you will find some seriously talented people who love to share their ideas with you! Our hop today and is anything relating to Dads - doesn’t matter if it is a layout, card, mini album, or decorating item, if it’s about DAD…it’ll be here!!! With Fathers Day around the corner - take the time to make Dad feel just as special as Mom feels on her special day - by making him something from your heart!

Now, if you just happened upon my blog, then please go back to the beginning which is at Lynda’s blog ( Besides, the beginning is always the best anyway!!!

Let’s get started with the ideas -

For my projects today I would like to share some Father's Day cards I have made using Iris Folding. I started taking some classes last year at my local LSS. I really liked that the teacher used the Cricut for a lot of her files. If you cannot find a class there are a lot of great books on Iris folding that you can learn from. I like the way it looks and it is fun to combine with my Cricut and an easy take a long project when I am going somewhere.

This is the card I made in class last year.
These are the two cards I made this year.

This one is for my husband.  

This is the inside. Stamp from my stash.
This one I made for my son in law.  He is always helping me with projects.  
The little screws are brads.
