the last of the Father's Day cards

Hello!  Happy Friday!  The weekend is here!  And a wonderful weekend too, one celebrating our dad's!  I have a few more Father's Day cards that I made to share with you! Here is my first:

he can fix it!, originally uploaded by AnitaRex.

I made this one pretty quick focusing on some pp I had left over from last Father's day, I liked it so much that I bought a few sheets!  I love the screw brads!

For this card I clear embossed the Horizontal Lines stamp by Hero Arts on top and than stamped the bbq  three times coloring them in but on the last one pop dotting it and putting glossy accents to make it shine line a new bbq!  I love the smoke coming out!

For this card I used two new stamps.  The clouds background stamp is one I have been wanting for ages and I got it with my May win at Hero Arts!  And the airplane is from PTI.  To make the Happy Father's Day banner I just curved the sentiment on a clear block the way I wanted it and "mounted" it with another clear block by pushing it on.  I love how you can do that with clear stamps!  I also pop dotted some clouds with foam squares!

This week has been a fun week.  It was quite hot at the start of the week and we enjoyed being outside!  Chad is playing baseball and we all went to a game to watch him, the kids loved it.  He was supposed to have a few more games this week but it has been raining!  Just pouring! As I took the kids out today to meet up with friends at a bookstore I wondered what possessed me to go out in such weather!  We went to a bookstore where kids can play in a kids area, Carter was quite busy.  He kept going to different containers of balls for sale and throwing them.  He was good about afterward picking them all up.  I apologized to the younger worker who than told me that she thought he was actually amusing!  Oh well gotta love Carter!  Yesterday when I took my kids to the play area in the mall Carter was having so much fun that he came and gave me a hug which I think was his way of saying thank you!  He than jumped up and down in the same spot for what felt like minutes!  Oh one more, Carter is such a blondie that I really want him wearing a hat outside which is a fight.  But what I have been doing is that before I take him out of the car at the park (I often drive it's a long walk) I ask him if he wants to go outside, he nods his head, than I ask him if he wants to wear his hat he shakes his head no (he can say Yeah or yes but still prefers to nod or shake his head, he can't say no yet I haven't taught him!) I tell him he has to wear his hat, he still shakes his head no, I than say oh well your not coming to the park and close the door of the car, well than he starts nodding his head!  And when were at the park and I see him take his hat off I say "I guess it's time to go home" people always laugh as he quickly picks up his hat and puts it back on! 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating your Father's and/or husbands!
