Perfect Day

My birthday was yesterday so I got to take some time in the morning to work on some of the projects that I have had going on before spending time with my family (the perfect way to spend a birthday in my opinion).

My Pink Stamper is giving away a cricut expression at the beginning of the week.  Her challenge was to create a Father's Day project.  I came up with this card for my dad.  The owl is from Give a Hoot and the scalloped square and stitched square are from Mini Monograms.  The embossed pieces are done the swiss dots folder and spots and dots folder.  I must admit I'm a bit corny with some of my projects and couldn't resist a little humor here.  The text reads, "Hoooos the best Dad?"  The inside reads, "You are.  Happy Father's Day!"
While I had a few other things going on I used my Gypsy and Lyrical Letters to create letters for a t-shirt.  Our Youth Group at church led worship in honor of the 2010 graduates. We tie-dyed shirts a few weeks ago and I decided to take mine just a step further.  I used my Gypsy to curve and lay out the letters then using freezer paper (depth, pressure, and speed all set at 3) I cut out what I needed.  You can see my picture tutorial on freezer paper t's by clicking here.
We had a great worship service and everyone looked fantastic in their tie-dye!

Happy Memorial Day.  Special thanks and many blessings to the men and women (and their family members) who have served and are serving in our military.

Happy Crafting,


  1. Cute card and shirt.

    I always forget that I can type things out and print on my computer. Thanks for reminding me I can create words on my computer and print out.

  2. Hoooos got the best ideas? You do! So cute! (Sorry, corniness breeds more corniness:)
