Happy Father's Day




Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there!  Today we spent the afternoon with my parents' and two brothers.  My small man was in his glory surrounded by 3 of the guys he loves best in the world!  We had Chinese take-out, played outside, went for a walk, and watched a movie.  We spend two evenings a week with them anyway, but there is always something special about an extra day, especially when  it's to celebrate the man who always drove me and my friends to the mall when we were teenagers, who picked me up after concerts (and even went to a few with me), and who, just yesterday, bought me an ice cream cone!  And today he was attempting to teach Kayne how to hold a bat!  It's all those things and more that make him an amazing dad and grandfather.  I made a card for him this morning, and I wanted to share it with you.

I used Fedora Hat Luka from La-La-La-Land Crafts as my image.  This little sweetie pie just reminds me so much of my small man that I always gravitate towards him!  The fedora makes me think of Indian Jones for some reason.  And my dad often says if he could have been anything, he would have wanted to be an archeologist.  So I guess that was my thought process for selecting the image!  lol  Luka is colored with Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers, fussy cut, and mounted on foam squares.  The layout is the current sketch from Card Patterns (#170).  It was too fabulous not to use!  I altered a Tim Holtz watch frame with some Tim Holtz gears, a chain, and a K&Company sticker.  The sentiment was cut using the My Favorite Things Die-namic First Place Award Ribbon.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch and added a strip of seam binding.

We are home now, relaxing and watching Bambi but soon the lil fella will be in bed and I will be back to my desk, crafting.  It's going to be a busy week of card orders and design team projects so please check back to see what I've been up to.  There will be more from Tickled Pink Stamps and some Sassy fun as well so stay tuned!

OMG! Beautiful card. Constructing the watch with the Tim Holtz embellishments as genius. I love it. Great papers for a masculine card and great sketch interpretation. As always your coloring is the bomb! TFS.
