Greetings! Here is the Father's Day card I have my hubby yesterday. He actually liked it. I knew he would though. The deer is actually 3D and so cool. The deer stamp is from Grey Wold Graphics. It is a mom & pop stamp company from South Haven, MI. All their stamps are so detailed, real like and cool. They come to the Rubber Stamp convention here in GR each year and each year (the past 4) I have wanted this stamp but was too late in getting there because this stamp and the other deer stamp they carry sold out so fast each year. This year I went earlier and alas they had 2 left! What's cool is they even give you the instructions on how to make the 3D deer. The paper is all Stampin' Up! including the wood designer paper. The metal tags is one of the retired metal tags from SU which I trimmed the top off so it would just be a rectangle. The deer was stamped on glossy cardstock with basic black ink then colored in with Stampin Write markers in more mustard and creamy caramel. Cool huh?
I've been lacking in my posting lately for a few reasons. I wont go into too much detail, but I've been helping with getting our Vacation Bible School going for church, running my kids to swim lessons and play dates. Just over a week ago one of my closest friends was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I've put a blog together for her so she can post her progress through this difficult journey. Please say a little prayer for her. Her nanme is Julie and she has 3 young girls. She is very blessed with a very supportive family and of course her friends are doing what they can for help. I am a firm believer in the power of prayer - so if you could all just say a little prayer for Julie, her family and even for the doctors who are caring for her. Thank you.
I am off to our first night of VBS - wish me luck!!
