Hello all!!  Thought I would just jump in with a quick update tonight to show you one of a couple of cards I made tonight for Father's Day tomorrow.  I decided I did not want my son-in-law's to feel neglected because I make my daughters Mother's Day cards, so after dinner I thought I better get busy.  I could not use any of the new nautical stamp sets or embellishments because my daughters already made a lot of cards using those product for Father's Day.  Of course, I did get to use it for my husband's card (previously shown).  So I decided I better not trust my memory as to what I have given them before (good thing huh?) and did a design I have never tried and a stamp I have never used. 

Yes, the products used (stamps and designer paper) will be retired at the end of the month (another reason you should buy it before it is gone).  I have wanted to do an origami (sure am glad spell check caught my spelling error on this word, I almost had an x-rated post) shirt for years, just never got around to it, so it was really fun doing these cards.  And I'm ashamed to admit how easy it was.  Yes, even with the kids coming over to swim and me taking a break with them, it probably took me 15 minutes total to do a few of these cards (most of that was deciding what designer paper I was going to use -- decisions, decisions!!).  I will definitely be doing this in a class, I know the ladies would love it -- anything fast and easy is loved.

So here it is:

Yes Tami, I thought of you the whole time I was doing this card (black and white/vanilla only).  Kinda crazy with all the patterns but I like it and this is the way men dress anyway as they don't have a clue when it comes to not putting stripes with patterns together.  Actually I think anything goes in today's world.  Products used:  All Holidays and Smarty Pants Stamp Sets; Love Letter Designer Series Paper; Very Vanilla Card Stock; Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder; and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.
I am going to sooooo miss my Smarty Pants stamp set.  I have used it for so many different occasions and totally love the sayings.  Of course this is one that I will keep forever, so you better get yours before it is gone forever at the end of the month (mine will never go on sale no matter what someone wants to pay for it).

Enjoy your time tomorrow celebrating Father's Day, until next time,
