fix it dad

Hello!  I am still here!  It's been an interesting week and a bit!  I was sick, than a long weekend hit, than I got sick with a cold (still have that my head feels so wooly!) and than to my horror my computer went down on tuesday evening!  I have been depraved!  I am currently at my husbands office late at night using the computer!  I have been crafting, and well cleaning more too.  Thankfully my brother came over tonight and took the computer to fix and hopes to finish it tommorow!  I have some good news to share also.  My last post was twittered by Hero Arts and another one of my cards also!  And than today a card set of mine was featured on the Hero Arts blog Social Thursdays!  You can see it here.    That for sure makes my day a lot better!  I feel so honored!


Today I have three Father's Day cards to share.  This first one is very manly and hs been in my head for a few weeks to do but it took me a while to go to Home Depot!  I put a washer on it, I thought it would be a great embelleshment as it's flat!

Here is the inside, I did the tools in grey so that if I need to I can write my message over them.



I am really pleased with how this card turned out too.  I clear embossed Horizontal strpies by Hero Arts on the background and stamped the base and the die cut with friends def and than stamped with pigment and clear embossed the leaf.  I thought it could use some color so I added the green ribbon and button!



And one last Father's day card to share.  This card turned out so much differently than I had orginally thought but I really like it:



I stamped the background with tea dye with friends def, than stamped the leaves with pigment ink and clear embossed over top.  I am feeling in the groove for manly cards and am really enjoying them!

I also wanted to share that last thursday I had coffee with a Hero Arts flickr friend Linda!  Linda and I actually met in septemeber at Scrapfest so it was great to see her again!  I really enjoyed our time together!  I brought Carter along as Ariel was at preschool.  Here is a photo of the three of us:



I better run! It's close to midnight over here!  I am so missing being online and seeing your blogs and your work!  I hope that everything is well with you!
