Happy Father's Day!

Hello everybody! Hope you all are enjoying your Father's Day. Beautiful day here in the north state, sunny and about 92ish. I would love to have spent the day with my dad, but he went to heaven almost 3 years ago. Sure do miss him, but I know he's enjoying Father's Day with the best Father ever!!

Earlier today while DH went to band practice I got a chance to play in my room and was able to finish up some birthday cards. I decided to use the one I made for my bff, who actually nicknamed me Sissy, for the challenge over at Birthday Sundaes. The challenge was to make a shaped card. I used my Gypsy to weld this cute purse from the Paisley cartridge. Every time I am able to make something like this, I am so happy I bought my Gypsy. I had quite the learning curve with it, but I stuck with it. I know there's still a lot I need to learn about it, but that comes with time like everything else. I really liked how this card turned out, especially the leopard print paper. We're always trying to out do each other on the leopard stuff that we get each other, and I think I may have topped her this year!! lol and to think, it all started with one pair of Birkenstock's that I bought about 5 years ago and we both have gone leopard crazy ever since! Here's the recipe:

Paisley Cricut Cartridge for shaped card base
Core'dinations and Recollection cardstock
Pattern paper from Joann's open stock
Recollection flower and rhinestones
Martha Stewart bakers twine
Colorbox chalk ink for distressing
Stampin' Up ink
Pink by Design sentiment stamps
Nestabilities die cut for tag

Hope you all have a great day and as always, thanks for stopping by.
