Looking for a fun Father's Day card idea to make?

This one features the Fan Fair DSP that I talked about the other day.  It has these sheets of tags and I have used the heck out of them over this past week and don't worry, I will share what I came up with soon.

This one started with a sketch and I will say that the first two versions didn't make the cut, but I am really happy with this one.  And as I was creating it, I kept getting stuck on the sentiment tag.  It was just blah.  So I drank a cup of coffee and stared at it some more.  I kept wanting to add a bow, and really didn't want a bow on a Father's Day card.  Then a little music, more staring.  More coffee and more staring – then it hit me to add a tag to the tag!  I love the little Island Indigo tag under the sentiment, and then I love the Vintage Trinket button brad I added.

As I was creating {staring at} this card, I remembered a funny email that I received over the weekend.  AND IF YOU HAVE EMAILED ME IN THE PAST WEEK, THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE I DID NOT GET IT – SO PLEASE EMAIL ME AGAIN – Problem should be fixed.  But it was from one of my sweet VIP members from France, Anna.  She asked me if everything I create gets shared on my blog.

The answer is no.  Why is this funny to me?  There is a lot that goes in the trash!  But there are a lot of things that I create that are for my family, for my daughter, my journals etc.  She also asked how many projects I normally make in a day.  I had to ponder that one for a while.  There are days that I create about a dozen things and others 1-2 maybe.  But I normally make at least 6-7 things a day.

This past weekend was a little spring cleaning and a lot of creating.  A lot more creating than cleaning!!!  I found card kits that I purchased right before we moved almost four years ago now.  I had a blast making up those cards and will share them soon – so that was 12 cards that I did yesterday.  I will share those this week.

Back to today's card:  All the patterned paper is from the Fan Fair package from Stampin' Up!  And the stamp set is from Delightful Dozen also from Stampin' Up!
