•Father• Oh Wise One


Happy Tuesday! Yesterday I showed one of the April Stamp Club projects, for the mother, so today I'm showing the other project, for the father. You can slip a gift card right inside this one, if you're like me and give your dad a Lowe's gift certificate for every Father's Day, birthday, and Christmas.

You can see a tutorial for this great project template over at Splitcoast here (but if you're in my stamp club, don't look and act totally surprised and think I'm awesome when I show you how to do it next week! lol!). I used the Just Celebrate set from the SU Occasions Mini, something about that little owl and the "oh wise one" just hit me and seemed perfect for Father's Day. I colored the owl with the Pure Color Pencils, they are still one of my favorite coloring tools and I wish they came in more colors. I used my little scissors to cut the jagged edge border around the owl pieces (still don't have those Nestabilities, so have to improvise!), and I managed to find a way to sneak some ribbon on there, even though it's a dad's card!

Guess I need to finish getting ready for work. I'm feeling like a pile of warm goo (dh's favorite sickly term) with a head full of goo (also his). Started on Sunday with a sore throat, etc...don't know why I'm surprised, I had two kids out sick Thursday and Friday. Man, I thought this junk was behind me for this school year! Hope y'all have a happy and healthy Tuesday!

Recipe Stamps: Just Celebrate, All Holidays, Straight Up Mini Alphabet (retired). Cardstock: Kraft, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Spring Break DSP. Ink: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy. Accessories: Pure Color Pencils, Earth Elements Brads, Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Paper Piercer, Coluzzle, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals.
