Hi all, wow it has been a while since I posted and I can not believe I did not share our last family gathering with you all.
Father's day was a fun but hard since it was the first Father's day without my hubby. We tried to make it fun with a cook out and birthday celebrations for all the grandchildren. Smiles, frowns a few tears along with cup cakes a little frosting in a few faces as we had some clowning around. Hey, thats what families are for. Sticking together, supporting one another and having some fun.
Since all of us are busy it is rare that we ladies can get together and craft. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to make your cards on the day of the celebration, but I am sure you can all relate.
So last minute, fast, quick thinking cards are what we came up with.
Here is my quick Father's day card for my son.
Sorry it is not a clearer photos.
I used a Lily of the Valley stamp along with a JustRite
Happy Birthday saying. Colored with Copic Sketch
markers and used card stock from my stash.
Wonderful saying from Hellen Keller from a Recollection
Stamp. This card was made by my daughter Jeneen.
Again she used stock from my stash and just layered
what went well together. Inside is below
Same theme on the inside with a Stampin up Birthday Wishes
Stamp. This came out so very pretty.
Trying to find themes that each Grandchild young and adult
liked was hard since we had little time to make. This is a card
made by my daughter in law Cherish for my granddaughter Sarah.
Looking through my stash we found this cute little puppy
which was just perfect. Cut it out using some decorative
scissors and layered the saying at the bottom so it was slightly
off the page.
See inside below, it is just as cute.
Isn't this adorable. Just perfect for Sarah's birthday
quick, cute and perfect.
Here is another card by Jeneen. Background stamp
is Shabby Music by JustRite. A smaller music
stamp and saying are from Stampin up.
Mementos Blue Indigo Ink.
I can't find the photo of the inside so on to the next one.
Cute card by my daughter in law Cherish. Stamp is
Inkado , paper from First Edition Love Letters 6x6
paper pad. Charms from the Charm Store. If you are
