due to lovely husband jeff's work schedule next week, and a couple of other commitments this past weekend, we actually celebrated father's day LAST weekend. we went down to his parents' house in maryland, took them out for a nice lunch, and for ice cream*, and just generally had a great visit.
obviously, i made a card. because it's WHAT I DO!!! (& photo-ed it with great mediocrity b/c THAT'S what i do, too!) (sigh) :)
(patterned paper: mustard moon, prima paintables; cardstock, chipboard and regular stickers: dover, sassafras, k&co, girls' paperie, heidi swapp; vintage-look items: the ephemera book; paper clip: making memories; crown: tim holtz; inks: ranger & colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam & double-stick tape, diamond glaze, sewing machine)
i am quite pleased with this one, although i confess that i started out with a very different plan that changed completely when i found this cool knight in a dover sticker book i got at a garage sale. the background is an old prima paintable that i have enhanced with distress inks, mostly around the edges b/c the sticker has a border of white. the rest of the embellies are a mishmash of stash-based goodness including the exceedingly elderly mustard moon "phone book" paper that i bought in every color and still adore, perhaps all the moreso, as my supply dwindles.
we took a present along, as well, that i'm only showing because i'm proud of the RIBBON INNOVATION i thought up at the verrrrrrrry last minute:
YES! that *IS* a strip of denim that i snipped and tore from the leg of an old pair of jeans i saved to use for sewing essperiments. i LOVE how it looks and seriously it took like 3 seconds to do! expect to see denim popping up again at some point... i think i may be starting a new obsession... ♥♥♥
*secretly, although my f-i-l LIKES ice cream, when we visit, i believe he mostly *pretends* to have the massive craving that is my default state, just to be gallant, so that we can go to the local dairy he knows that i love. which kind of gives you an idea whence lovely husband jeff's loveliness comes, doesn't it?! :)
