Happy Father's Day (continued)

One more card that I made for Father's Day (whew, sure seems like we made a lot of those this past week). This one is for the kids' Grandfather. We don't really do the whole Grandparents Day thing here (mostly because I never know when it is until it is too late). My husband never had a father in his life, but my MIL married a great guy a little before we had kids, so they've always known him as Pap!

So while this card was more of a Grandpa card than a Father's Day card, I still wanted to acknowledge him on this day :)

Thanks for looking!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to my husband today! I am so grateful that he puts up with all our crazy ailments, quirks, and that he rids our home of live birds (a long story that ended with him coming home twice on Friday to save his family from a small bird that got trapped in our house) :)

I made a super manned up card for my hubby for Father's Day. Complete with tons of distressing, my handy little dymo labeler, and the super awesome screw eyelets by Making Memories! All my favorite things on the card for my favorite guy :)

My kids also made cards themselves this year with some of their cricut creations (you know, before the great tragedy of it's death).

Thanks for looking!

It is finally coming!!!!

I can't even tell you how excited I am to report that my replacement Cricut Create is on the way! It has been almost an entire month since my beloved Cricut broke, but the end is finally in sight :)

This was the last card I made before the demise of my little crafty friend. The papers are all Stampin' Up! and I was trying to use up some of my old in colors. Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss are all some of our past in colors and Chocolate Chip is s current color (and if it ever retired I would probably cry - I LOVE that color)

I used the Preserves cartridge to make the berries, and used one of my SU stampes for the sentiments. I love layering SU punches so I went crazy with this title :)

I have a few non-cricut Father's Day cards that I'll post in the next few days (need to make sure the recipients don't see them before the big day) ;) And then early next week, I should be busy making more cricut stuff!

Thanks for looking!
