Who's Your Daddy, and What's the 411 hun?

Father's Day was this past Sunday, June 19.  But any day is an opportunity to tell the dads in your life how much you care and appreciate them.  Sometimes, the "right moment" to express your feelings verbally with your father doesn't present itself very often.  That's when your best alternative is to put it in writing.  What better way to convey your thoughts on paper than with one of raine.with.love's handmade papercrafts?  Written words can be very powerful and impactful.  And more permanent.  A greeting card serves as a tangible memory that the recipient can tap into any time just by re-reading the card.  After all, you don't have a tape recorder on you to capture those fleeting words of endearment and expressions of love.  Or do you?  ;)

I used this card by raine:

Blank inside, I filled it with my own words to my father.  I believe I said more in my writing than anything I would have been able to say in person.  And although I was not there when he opened and read the card, I suspect it warmed his heart because it warmed mine to write it.

For all the dads, grandfathers, godfathers, and uncles, and to all the father figures in your life, wish them a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY. 

Whoever serves the role of "dad" in your life deserves to be acknowledged.  Say it with love.
Say it with raine.
