Daddy Is My Hero

I went out of my comfort zone this week. I had to. I had an urge and I couldn't resist it.

I kept thinking about Father's Day printables and patterns and quotes (still more to come, and I'll post a round-up soon!) and I thought it would be fun to design something different for you and the fathers in your lives. Today's printable steps away from my typical 8x10 quote/scripture/lyrics, but I think I may start doing more of these--let me know your thoughts! Should I stick with the normal 8x10, or should I try to branch out and try new things more often?

My standard for printables is found in the 13th Article of Faith: "...If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." Therefore, if something brings us closer together as families or brings us closer to Christ, it meets my standards. we go...drum roll please...Ta DAHH! A free greeting card, some straw/cupcake flags, and a cake topper/gift tag! Yay! This prints up on an 8.5x11 sheet, so the card ends up being 4x6 when folded in half.

I went with the theme of "Daddy Is My Hero" because as I watch my infant daughter with my husband, I can see in her eyes that she really feels that way about her dad. She loves to laugh with him and tries to copy him and it seems as though she wants to do everything he does. Her favorite place in the world is in his arms, against his chest. It's my favorite sight. I'm sure that if she could talk, she would say, "Mom, Daddy is my hero."

What makes you think the fathers in your life are heroes?
