Because he at least deserves a card...

I'm a huge fan of cards (you'll never see me break into a gift without first searching for and then gushing over the card). I enjoy making my own cards but if I get too busy or too lazy, purchasing a good one works just as well. B and I are probably going to order Etsy cards this year for Father's Day so I'm compiled my list here. Now, these aren't necessarily cards that would work for MY dad, but I tried to pick a variety because I didn't want to bore you to death (sorry dad, just being honest).
For the woodsman or hunter Dad...
woodland theme Father's Day card $2.50

For the Dad who appreciates pattern and design...
polka dot Dad Fathers Day card $2.50

For the playful Dad...
Freakin Awesome Dad $6

For the hipster Dad...

For the peaceful Dad...

No sentimental stuff here, plus I like making him laugh!

You always find the BEST things! I can't pick which one I like the most. Yeah, not the perfect picks for my dad either, but for sure my husband!

Thanks for the reminder. Love the last card - Spawn's etsy shop has a congrats-on-your-baby card is another hilarious excuse to send people you love cards with (pictures of) sperm on them :)

That last one about made me fall out of my chair (I'm at work btw so it wouldn't have been good). Too funny!

You are too funny - I totally wasn't expecting the strong swimmers... the picture took a couple seconds to load and I was waiting for funny bathing suits!
