Father's Day

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to share the Father's Day card I made for my Grandson to give my Husband. He lives with us, so my husband is pretty much the only Dad he knows. I saw this quote online when I went looking for sentiments and just couldn't resist! I actually remember giving Soap-on-a-Rope to my own Dad a time or two,LOL! I used some clip art that I found online and embossed the mat to look like bathroom tile. I definitely saw the corners of my hubby's mouth curl up when he read the quote. I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day and thanks for taking a peek! Supplies: Embossing folder- Sizzix Checkerboard, Sentiment and soap- computer generated, Used Glossy Accents on the soap bubbles.

Hello everyone! I am so Thankful for each and every one of you, that I made a card to show my appreciation! I must admit that every element of this card, with the exception of the yellow flower and the butterfly, was either given to me or leftover from previous projects. The background paper is floral paper that I saved from some flowers I received last year. The white roses were given to me by a friend( thanks Joy ), and the leaves, label, border and card were all leftovers! No matter how each piece arrived, they all came together to create this Thank You for all of my wonderful followers and friends who have encouraged and sometimes guided me on in this journey. I can't thank you enough! The butterfly was made with a Stampin' Up punch. I cut two of the petals off in the center to form the wings, stamped it then painted the colors on, added some pearl beads for the body, and made antenae with a small piece of wire. Supplies:Butterfly- Stampin' Up punch Blossom and stamp Mixed Bunch, Paint on butterfly-Lumin Arte shimmer, Roses- Sizzix die 3D Flowers, Label- EK Success corner punch, Border and leaves- Martha Stewart punches, Resin flower and sentiment- Close To My Heart Bouquet Asst. and Petite Perks
