Father's Day Free Printable Card, New T-shirt Design and Garden Papers!

Hi Everyone, please scroll down to see our June Linky Winners and sorry for the delay.

I had to split this post into 2 parts, so click to see the Linky and Giveaway Winners, 2 great Tutorials and Road Trip Re-cap.  I really wanted to post a Free Father's Day Printable today as we had such a great Mother's Day one and then we got carried away and ended up with 2 designs for Dad.   So we also have a fab New Father's Day T-shirt Design Download for $2.95. Plus, our Garden Papers are finished and you can see preview sheets below. 

I really like how our Free Father's Day Printable turned out this year! Cindy did a great job transforming a couple of drawings I had into super cute graphics for a quick print and fold card for your #1 DAD. Just left click the image till it gets as large as possible (it's 2 MB) and save it to a picture file.

 Print on cardstock, fold and add a mushy message. It would be cute with 2 real buttons and you could print it a second time, cut out the trophy and suspenders for 3D paper piecing fun.

Here's the new Father Printable Design Download for $2.95 that will work great as an iron-on transfer for a T-shirt or pillow. You can also reduce the 7" x 8" size to create a card or make a fun sign for Father's Day.
  Here's a sample showing what it will look like on a T-shirt.  Simply print on a sheet of iron-on transfer paper and trim the edges close to the brown frame and follow the manufacturer's instructions to add it to a t-shirt or pillow cover.

I've been struggling with a price for our Garden Papers because it has taken me years to acquire my collection and it felt like years to clean and design everything. The Garden Papers Set is $9.95 including the Floral and vegetable catalog cover pages. I almost split them up and was going to sell the seed packet papers separately as there is a stunning mix of 46 amazing flower and vegetable catalog covers. Every image has been re-paired and then Cindy made several changes to improve and make them unique.  At 300 dpi each flower and vegetable cover image is 3 x 2" (except for 2 double size veggie ones) but they can all be cropped and enlarged a fair bit more.
We wanted the papers to work well for decoupage projects but maybe we should we have done the catalog covers as 2 separate downloads? Please leave feedback if you would prefer to have the Flower and Vegetable covers sold separately?  We will try and work out a garden special

Look at these 2 adorable Garden Pincushions DT Member Melissa Bove created!  You can see all the details here on Melissa's Blog

I am so in love with this one and the cute hat pins Melissa added.  What a fun gift and you could add pins to it as well

I would love to hear what you think of everything?  Do you want more designs like the World's Best Father's T-Shirt?

Till next time, wishing you joy & creativity

Oh, Sandy...the garden papers are just gorgeous. I'm off to order them now. I love every single thing you much so that I am forcing myself to learn how to use digital images! LOL The t-shirt is fun...but I'm not sure whether I would use it or not. Have a great day!

The t-shirt design is fabulous! I love the idea that you can use it on a pillowcase too!

Those pincushions are just amazing--love, love! Keep up the great work!
