It's Bloghop time with the ISS Design Team

Today we are hopping along the InStyle Stamps Design Team for Father's Day inspiration. We've just started with the awesome and talented Angela and now it's my turn.

My project today is a card using one of the fabulous Day in the Life images that are about the most amazing stamps out there! It's called Father and Kid.

If you take a peek behind the card you'll see that it is a self standing card.

And if you're really curious you can open the flaps to see the secret message. Gotcha! There's nothing written yet.

Okay, I hope you've enjoyed your HOP STOP here at Rain Puddles Design and now it's time to head on over to Raquel for her fabulous project.

Remember to go through the whole blog hop and then go back to the very beginning to vote for your favorite project. I know it's going to be hard to pick just one favorite but I know you can do it! {wink}

UPDATE: I've made up a template for the self-standing card. Hope you are inspired to use it.
