I treasure you Daddy!!!

Daddy, my little daddy... I love you!

We celebrated Father's Day yesterday with our wonderful man.  In preparation, I helped Shaela and Devin stamp fun little cards.  They have such great big 6 and 8 year old ideas.  Kids really know how to think out of the box!  Of course Daddy loved the cards and sentiments!  And he noticed the 'bird' theme... guess the kids miss their cockatoo.

I opted to create this fun little pocket card as seen on Patty's website.  Begin with a 12" x 4" piece of Buckaroo Blue cardstock.  Score at 4" and 8".  You will have three even sections.  Score a diagonal on the middle panel.  Doesn't that make a nice little pocket?  I mounted my 4" x 4" pocket card onto a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Ruby Red... added some stars and In-Color River Rock double stitch ribbon.  A tag... a star... designer paper... a brad... all done!

In-Colors - NEW!!!!


I am a nut for color.  I always have been!  In high school I picked a fav color each year.  One year it was green, the next it was purple.  I bought purple pens, purple notebooks, purple backpack, purple socks (can you say Donny Osmond anyone?), purple sweaters, and purple hair accessories.  It was MY color and everyone knew it!  lol

So it should be no surprise that I go oodly cazoodly when the new In-Colors are announced each year!  Of course I will miss the old In-Colors, but I will keep my secret stash of cardstock, ink pads, and reinkers and use them sparingly until they are gone.  BUT... what is not to love about Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango... bold and vibrant and FUN contrasting colors.  I think those are my new picks!  Of course, that changes with each new sample I see and the more I play with them myself... which won't happen until I get my demonstrator sneak peek order in July!!!!

Enjoy your sneak peek - and don't forget to get all the great 'OLD' In-colors before they are gone!
