Happy Father's Day

Hello my friends!  Welcome to my blog!  I am so happy that you've stopped by!

I am in the midst of getting ready to head to Alaska tomorrow, but wanted to get this post up to display the Father's Day card I put together yesterday.  Masculine card designs are somewhat difficult to put together, I think, because there are only so many golfing and fishing card ideas that don't seem redundant.  Also, the challenge for me this time was coming up with one card design for three men, my dad, my father-in-law and my husband.  I prefer to make a unique card for each, but I'm pressed for time and will not be taking any of my craft supplies on my trip.  :(    I'm feeling anxiety about that already...  LOL!

I found this Route 66 digital set, quite by happy accident, at D.A.I.S.I.E. Company,, and it's by artist Gina Jane .   I don't know what my problem has been all this time, but I haven't done much with digital designs.  Oh Wa Ta Goo Siam! (okay, say it fast now).  The downloadable designer paper designs out there are phenomenal, not to mention, plentiful!  No need to take up precious space in my craft room with paper that I might or might not use.  Anyway, I stitched white lines on black ribbon to try to replicate a road.  (It looks like that road line painter had some cocktails on his lunch hour).  Then I tried to make the bottle cap die cut look more authentic by embossing it.  Hmmm...  I think the jury is out on that one yet.

Oops!  Here I am jabbering on when I have laundry to do, bags to pack and a whole list of to-do's to do.  I hope you have a great week!  I'll catch you on the flip side of it.

Thank You SO MUCH for visiting!  Have a great day and an even better tomorrow!

♥ Laura C.
