A Card for Daddy

Father's Day snuck up on me somewhat this year...ever have that happen to you with card-making occasions? I make cards all the time for others, but can I remember to make them for my own family? Nooooo...

Sigh.

So, I went with quick & adorable. Remember the stamp set I used on the OOTB Sampler Box cards? I pulled it back out and made up a quick coloring page for Kieran, then set him to work with the crayons. He's hilarious to watch...colors are very carefully selected and each line is drawn with great precision and care. If only he could clean up his toys with the same wild abandon...ah well. When he was done, I inked up the edges quick, attached it to some leftover chocolate card stock, then put it on a kraft paper card base. One of the leftover twine loops made the perfect finishing touch.

Apparently he was going for a CAS, less is more approach this time...lol
I know, I know - not the greatest photo. Camera phone again, can you tell? I dated the back so we can keep track of his artistic development. :)  His actual gift to his Dada was the new book, Darth Vader and Son. It's full of geeky goodness and was a big hit.

I love my Daddy!


How was YOUR Father's Day?
