Happy, Handy Dad!


I've been having the hardest time getting motivated to make cards for Father's Day. I just don't have a lot of stamps that are masculine. A friend of mine (hey, Pete!) was doing a little object lesson for the children in Sunday School He ended up buying a little package of tiny "tools" used for scrapping/card making or whatever (made by Karen Foster). He ended up not using them in his lesson, but he knew I was a crafty geek, so he gave them to me! I was off and running. I did this for SC126 on SCS. I finally found a use for the Creative Impressions brads I had, too! (The ones that look like straight-slot and Phillips screws!) I also can't stop using my paper distressor! The more I use it, the better it works. The stamp sets used here, all retiring, are Measure It Up (wheel), Crosshatch, Alphadots & Letter Prints. I kinda thought the thumbprint stamp looked like woodgrain. Paper colors are chocolate chip, close to cocoa, so saffron and really rust. I need to make another one using some of the other tools now!
