HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

I feel so lucky to have a husband who has made it possible for me to stay home and raise our children. It was a really big change to go from two full time incomes down to one after our first was born, but the sacrifice was SO worth it. Even though I feel like I'm going crazy at times, I am thankful every day to have the opportunity to be the kind of Mom that I always wanted to be.

In addition to all of the spoiling that will be going on in our home today, the kids asked me to make Daddy a special card with SU's "All in the Family" set. This card gave me the perfect opportunity to break in the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig that I got in the mail yesterday!

The card base is Not Quite Navy with More Mustard as an accent color. Everything else used was from the scrap bin - gotta love that! I did paper piecing on the outfits and used my Copics to color the faces, hair, shoes and kitties. The kids were really happy with the way the card turned out and I think my husband will get a kick out of it.


This is the card that I made for him - from me. Since he's such an AMAZING provider and works so hard everyday, I thought it would be cute to use his work shirt as my inspiration.

That is so flippin' cute! Both cards are great, but the shirt card is so darn clever. I would expect nothing less than spectacular from you anyway.
