Free Printable Father’s Day Cards to the Rescue!
I know Mother’s Day was only days ago, but I’m already feeling the heat of Father’s Day at my back. It seems like there’s one event after another that needs a special card or craft. Am I right?!? If it’s not Easter or Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, it’s birthdays, anniversaries and other notable events. I’m not trying to be Grouchy Gretchen – I really do love celebrating and marking all the special events.
However, it can be a little hard to keep up with! So today is for all of you Last-Minute-Lucy types – or maybe you’re just a tired mom like me and looking for the easy way out. These free printable Father’s Day cards are just what you’re looking for!
It was really Mother’s Day that woke me up to this. I had written a post last year with Mother’s Day Crafts for Grandma, because really – are we going to help our kids make our own Mother’s Day crafts? But it was the week of Mother’s Day, and I was kind of late to the game mailing something to my mom and Nana (my boys’ Nanny and Great Nana). And while I love all those crafts, they weren’t really the type to put in the mail.
So I did what any good mom would do and I headed over to Pinterest to look for a cute free printable card I could mail. And I found this adorable Mother’s Day Love Bug card from Glued to My Crafts that I made and sent in a snap. That’s the kind of easy I’m talking about.
And all that got me thinking about Father’s Day. I have a post out for Father’s Day gifts your kids can make – things that Dad will actually use. Which is great. A ton of amazing ideas from other bloggers, and I’m actually hoping to be on my game this year and make one for my husband. However, there’s still Poppy and Grandpa Mike to consider. We need something to send them. And, I might end up being the Last Minute Lucy this time around, too.
