Fathers Day.... Quick, cheap and printable cards, and gifts.

I just had some fun ideas for Fathers day.......I thought I would add some links of some cute fathers day printables for you in case you find yourself wanting to do something creative and fun, lacking funds to buy a card or gift, or just want something original for you or your kids to do for fathers day.  I have inserted a bunch of links that can take you to some pretty awesome and creative printables.  The first site is one that I want to focus on as I just happened upon them today and LOVE, love, love, their site. The site is  http://thetoymaker.com/  They not only have fathers day printables but printables for just about any other holiday or occasion you could think of and soooooo cute!  They have some darling inline readable books as well that could keep your kids busy during the long summer.  I want to insert a photo of the darling Fathers Day box that they have that you can print off and fill with with some of dad's favorite treats......
If you go to the link located here: 
 http://www.thetoymaker.com/Holidays/Fathersday/DADBOX.pdf you can print it off.  Be sure to look through this entire site as you will find all kinds of fun things and they are sooooo cute!!!!!
More from that site can be found here for Fathers Day:

To go with the printable here is a darling king for a day cake by wilton King for a day cake http://www.wilton.com/about/pressroom/pressrelease.cfm?id=320FAF4F-1E0B-C910-EA39B599F655FF69
This cake would be fun to just do a King for a day themed dinner and tread Dad or your husband like Royalty.

I found a site that takes this idea one step further and it can tell you all kinds of fun things to do to make your husband or Dad, king for a day at http://beautyandbedlam.com/fathers-day-ideas-king-for-the-day/  They even have a cute fathers day coupon booklet to print off located here http://beautyandbedlam.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/FathersDayCouponBook.pdf
Wondering what to cook on Fathersday?  How about a "PAPA'S PIZZA"?  This darling idea comes from the same site I found the king for a day ideas.  Thanks again.... and here is the link http://beautyandbedlam.com/celebrate-dad-this-fathers-day-with-a-papa-pizza/  Thanks Jen at beautyandbedlam.com for all the great ideas!!

Enjoy these fun Fathers Day finds!!!!!  Katie G.

Printable Note cards

Before I create a first visit card of my own, I wanted to show you a whole bunch of free sites where you can print off some darling premade cards.

These two pages of darling cards can be found this link.  Be sure to leave a thankyou note.   http://keeleyskreations.blogspot.com/2009/02/free-printable-note-cards.html


Aren't these darling and I love the message.  They print two per page and you can find them at this link: http://www.operationnice.com/2008/09/nice-assignment-gratitude-notes.html  This is a great blog about being NICE.  You should spend some time looking at this blog as they have many other "Nice" printables too.  Oh and it would be Nice if you would write them a little not to thank them for their niceness!!! 
I just found a link to this site for these darling cards to print off and give out whenever you feel like it, just to be nice! http://melissahead.com/operation_nice/kind_over_matter_cards.pdf
It is part of operation nice... can you tell! Now go out and do something nice for someone!  It is another great site for you to go to and look at.  Worth your time!  http://kindovermatter.blogspot.com

I will take some more time to add some more great printable card sites and also include some of my own creations.... BUT I must leave my house right now, but I will be back!

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at http://visitingteachingtips.blogspot.com/ If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
