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!
