Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, especially mine! As usual, I waited until the last minute to make a card for the occasion. As I rushed around today wondering how I was going to get everything done before we left for the family cookout at my brother's, Kayne offered me the perfect solution: "Mom. Can I color the picture for Papa's card?" What could be more special than something colored by your grandson and crafted into a card by your daughter, right? So we created together and I love the result!
Kayne picked the image from among some Saturated Canary digis I had printed for him to color. He selected Joey. I don't think my dad is particularly fond of soccer, but it was the little man's choice and we went with it! He used his Crayola markers and crayons to color him. (He asked to use my Copics but mommy said "no"! Lol) I thought he did an awesome job!
I designed the rest of the card, with a little help from Kayne. He wanted me to use the alphabet dies (My Favorite Things) to spell out "Papa" which is what he calls my dad. I cut the image using Labels Eight Nestabilities (Spellbinders). I also used a few other dies: Stars Five Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Star Cluster (Tim Holtz for Sizzix); and Lattice Doily Border, Heart Banner, and Ric Rack (La-La-Land Crafts). The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and is cut with Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things).
We had a wonderful day with my family and my dad loved his card. I think maybe I should be collaborating with my budding artist more often!
