Super Dad!

I've been working on this card for two days now, and it's been in the trash four times!  I was determined to get it done to the point I was happy about it, but I know Dad will love it no matter what.

In my quest to look for new fun and fancy ways to fold cards, and I came across this one while I was surfing on Pinterest.  

I started with the stamp.  I just happened to get to Hobby Lobby on a day that they were marking stuff down, way down.  I ended up getting 10 wood mounted stamps for $15.00!  They are mostly sentiments, but that is what I like the most.

My Super Dad is cut using the Create A Friend cartridge.    The letters are cut with a Papertrey Ink alphabet die and the little squares where cut with some Nestabilities.

To hold it all together, I made a simple belly band that just slips over the top of my card.

Stamps:  Inkadinkado-Sentiment, Studio G-Sentiment
Paper:  MME, Bazzill, Recollections, The Paper Studio
Ink:  Heidi Swapp
Misc:  Paper punches, pop up dots, Nestabilities, Papertrey Ink alphabet die, Quickutz sun die,  Impression Obsession cloud die, Cricut Create a Friend cartridge, Diamond Glaze

A New Addition

There is an American Girl Doll Store right near where I live.  I've been admiring the dolls and clothes, but they are a little rich for my blood, especially since I'm a little old to be playing with dolls.  I did, however, think to myself that I could sew outfits for the dolls.  So, with the help of Ebay, I found a beautiful doll in my price range and started sewing clothes.  I'm having a great time making the doll clothes.  I have decided to sell them in my Etsy Shop, so if you are looking for a unique, handmade, one of a kind outfit for your American Girl Doll, jump on over to my Etsy Shop.

These outfits are designed to fit 18 inch dolls including Madame Alexander and Our Generation.
