Happy Father's Day!

I woke up at 7:30 this morning to make a card for my dad as I just passed out last night from being overtired. Anyway, this was what I came up with in the 30 mins before my daughter woke up.

I think this is my first masculine-ish card (yes, I snuck some flowers into the masculine-ish card; hence the -ish). I meant to quill a bamboo for my dad since he loves bamboo but that was not happening in the short time that I had. I quickly drew a boot (based from Dr. Marten's), stamped the flowers , stamped "happy" and "day" but didn't have time to stamp father's and quickly wrote it myself.

I chose boots in the card because my dad owns a shoe store and has been working day in and day out ever since it opened 20(?) years ago. He has been supportive in everything I do and I would say I got some of the creativity from his artistic side :) He's also pretty easygoing especially with putting up with the mess that I make. Yes, I'm a really messy person (but actually I'd like to say, I got that from my dad too haha).

Happy Father's Day!

Use it Tuesday (all about dad)
I found out about this card challenge blog yesterday and I really like it 'cuz it encourages you to use up the craft stash that you have especially if they're collecting dust. So things I've used: boot was drawn on scrap kraft paper that I made test stamping on the back, flowers stamped on the huge pack of scrapbook paper (200 sheets) I got from Costco last year for $15. I told myself not to get anymore scrapbooking paper till I use up at least of that pack...must resist urge to buy!

You hand-drawn boot is LOVELY! I was intrigued as to where you bought the boot stamp (LOL)!! It's so sweet and sort of funky for your Dad! Thanks for sharing your card. It's perfect in every way! Happy Father's Day to you and family!
