Happy Fathers Day!

Hello happy crafters!  Can you believe my second posting in a week!? A little bit better huh?   I was with my grandchildren Abbie 6 and Andew 4 this past week and let me tell ya - I couldn't have asked for any better well behave kids!! We sat around doing practically nothing and they enjoyed being home and not having to get up early for school. We had lots of tea parties, movies, checking the garden out and playing with their dog Trigger. Super sweet week!

Tomorrow is Father's Day and these are some of the cards I made for a customer.  The first one is a cute image called Biker Babe by Mo's Digital Pencil

Introducing you to "Mr. Brown Goes Surfing' by Phindy's Place!  Ok, how many other women out there have a hubby who is a remote control freak!  Honestly, my sweet DH has to have it in his hands and loves to channel surf that drives me crazy. He will stay on a station long enough for me to start getting interested in what is playing  and "click"  it's gone!  Sometimes I really miss the old days where you had to get up and change the channel and only 3 channels to choose from.  There was no channel surfing then:)

Gina K By The Sea Stamp Set - Love, love this stamp set for men's cards!
