I feel like I haven't done anything crafty in FOREVER!! We had amazing weather the last week of May when my son was out of school and I got to spend it all at home. Unfortunately, I felt obligated to work in the yard until every muscle in my body hurt and I had blisters everywhere!!! I spent the next week trying to recover from that and then got hit with a cold that knocked me on my rear!! I'm still not 100%, but, I am much better.
Anyway, thanks to the help of a "Thank You" card by Kimberly Crawford published in the May/June 2011 Paper Crafts magazine (which I noticed she also posted on her blog here), I was able to come up with my Father's Day cards for this year.
I wanted either "Happy" or "Father's" day in the stars...but, I couldn't make it work with so many letters regardless of how big the card was. I don't know how Kimberly got "Thank" in stars on hers...the magazine says its the same size as my card 5.5"x4.25"!! All I can figure is that her letters are super small. Anyway, I loved the colors and all the layering, so I went with it anyway.
Hope you all have a wonderful day spoiling the dad's in your lives!! I'm off to make my husband filled pancakes for breakfast...he's the best dad I've ever known! ;O)
