Whoooooo Hooooooo!!!!!!!!

HELLO!!!!!!! You will never guess what I did!!!!

Can you tell I am soooo almost beyond can not talk (or type), LOL!!!! My mom ordered all the new stuff from PaperTrey and it came today. After school I was going thru it all and wanted to start on my Father Day's cards.

Now comes I bit of a story, hehehe. I have only really have my mom since my dad past away almost 6 years ago, so I have not really made Father Days cards. I guess that is why when I see all the Mother/Daughter stuff I go for that stuff since it just fits me better. Then I started realizing that I have 2 other guys in my life and they REALLY help me in every way. These two guys are my Step-dad and my Grandfather. So this year I am making them each a very special card for Father's Day to show them both how much they mean to me. Tomorrow, I will show you may grandfathers card :)

But today, you get to see what I came up with. I liked the sentiments from the new "Father Knows Best", but it did not have the right sentiment for me, to show father & daughter. I asked my mom what can I do? And do you know her reply?

"Mom, do we have a stamp that says "Father" that matches this "Daughter" stamp from "Women in Life"? "

"No, JoAnna, but I am sure we have SOMETHING you can use. Do you see our craft room, you have EVERYTHING you could want in this room" :)

Lol, do you see where this is going, she ALWAYS makes me look up words that I do not understand and will make me sit there until something clicks in my head for tests. I know she is doing it to help me, but come on, sometimes I want some of the answers without having to sit there FOREVER until I figure it out :) I guess that is the kid in me, right?

Ok....enough typing JoAnna and get on with it, hehehehehe........ And here is the card my Step-Dad is getting for Father's Day!!!!!

Can you read it? I hope you all can. It says"it is not flesh & blood, but the heart that makes us.... FATHER & DAUGHTER"

Whoooooo Hoooooooo, I did it!!!!!!

And now you ask how I did it, right? Well I get to tell you. I found a "F" for Friend and just inked the "f" and then stamped it, next I used grandma and just inked the"a" and then I took mother and inked just the "ther". Whooooo Hoooooo!!!!!!! There you have I made my own "Father" that matched the "Daughter" in the set :)

My mom said she was proud of me.... I think she cried, she liked it so much and even better I figured out how the two sets fit my life :) The only down side it took me 2 hours to figure it out, LOL!!!!!! I guess the 2 hours was time well spent!!!!

Ok, see you all later, I am VERY tired and need to get some sleep for school tomorrow, wait, this post is not going up until tomorrow morning, LOL!!!! I will be back after school today :)

Whooooo Hooooo!!!!! Ok, I am sorry, I am just so happy that I could make something that fits perfect!!!

Such a great and creative way to use your stamps. I think you should submit it for the Papertrey win a set of stamps. I am sure that would be a creative Father's day card. Plus, I am sure your step-dad is going to love it.
