WOYWW 365...Too busy to remember...Thoughts on Fathers Day...

If you have just come to see my desk, thanks for visiting.
I have not heard from either Desker- fore or aft- about swapping. Please get in touch.

If you have the time, I invite you to scroll down for some backstory on my latest post on
the new blog, highlighting Quietfire Design digital files.
{lots of new stamps too!}

If you are too busy to (fill in the blank), you are too busy.

I could fill in the blank with lots of things, and as all my parents are in Heaven, I tend to let Mothers and Fathers Day go by without much attention.

This card is what I call a 15 Minute Wonder, and aside from design time and gathering supplies, it can be made in 15 minutes!
{Sure, go ahead and CASE- jus give me credit and share it back with me!}

Surely you have enough time for that!

We say," If it wasn't for sports, the men in our family wouldn't have any emotional life at all!"

Making the time to create, I had a mental trip down memory lane of times with my Dads, and decided to make this card, as my style of scrap book, get my family together and tell and  record stories of Dads and days gone by.

My most FAQ, is "How long does it take to make that?" which is why I enjoy sharing my
15 minute wonders.

The value of time spent is measured in many ways.
I'll have this paper keepsake, the laughs, tears and hugs shared with my family, the value of continuing memory carried in my heart and mind.

I have time for that!

Thanks again for visiting. Y'all come back now, hear!
Comments and Questions always welcomed.


  1. Your card is so great I love it Hugs ~Anne L #4

  2. Both my parents are no longer here either, so these days are not good ones for me but do give a chance to reflect. Great card. Happy WOYWW Helen #10

  3. I have emailed you about the ATCs, with info on how you should contact SooJay, who your ATC should be sent to. I see from my comments that Kelly has emailed you already. Hope it gets sorted!
    That Fathers Day card is lovely, I know that JUlia would adore that script!
    Hugs, LLJ xxx

  5. Good morning, Robyn. That's a lovely card - not because it is so simple and easy to construct... - but because of the memories and love it has brought to your heart as you made it.
    Take care. God bless.

  6. Oh Robyn that is lovely indeed... am sorry you haven't heard from any one about atcs.
    when see such lovely work as this think it would be nice to have a silhouette. a friend in US offered me one but we have different electricity (240Watts).

  9. Hi Robyn, love that card. I also have a Silhouette, albeit the original one when it first came out, so thats a good word for reliability! Just saved the link to Quietfire Digital Design, as I love the fonts for their sentiments. Thanks Robyn! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #18 xx
