I pray that every dad everywhere had an incredible day. Even though my kiddos are off touring the country, I wanted to make sure that my DH had a great day. I also wanted to help my son's girlfriend make the day a little bit special for the dads in her life. I am so excited that I got to be the one to initiate Britney into the world of ART! The scuba divier card was made using my Cricut, my Life's a Beach cartridge and my copics - I cut everything out of white paper and colored each piece individually. The card has some 3D elements to it. Needless to say, my DH, a master scuba diver LOVED his card.
Britney's step-dad loves anything that goes fast... Fast cars, fast boats, fast motorcycles... you get the idea. He also likes to hang out at the river, relaxing! So, while I am the proud owner of the Cars cartridge for my Cricut, I felt that Paul needed a card that was a bit more mature. So, once again I used my Life's a Beach cartridge and cut white paper and colored the individual pieces, once again using my copics.
Finally, Britney stamped Popcorn the Bear from Crafter's Companion and used Bic markers to color her ART.
From all reports, Britney's cards made a great impression on both of her dads. Who can resist a hand-made expression of love?
Happy Father's Day!
I realize that it has been a while since my last post. I am sorry, but as I am certain that many of you can attest to, life can get in the way! My youngest participated in the Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Palm Springs Pageant. She is the 4th runner up to the "crown" in her age division. I am just pleased that she saw the day through. Before practice the morning of the pageant, she broke down in tears, quiet upset that she was too nervous to participate. After a quick pep-talk and seeing a walk-through, she agreed to give it a try. I agreed that if it was too much, then we she would have given it her best, and we would go home.
Her bravery paid off. While being named 4th runner up to the crown, she was named Miss Photogenic in the 7-9 year old range. The last picture is, well, Sheridan just being Sheridan!
