Hope you are all enjoying your Saturday. I'm back to share some fun and easy cards I made for my dad. My dad normally doesn't ask me to make cards so when he does it's a big deal. He was going to visit my aunt, his brother's wife, and asked me to make him a couple "Hey, how you doing?" cards. I was happy to do them for him. He said, No make em too fancy, k? Since it was a last minute request I wanted to keep it simple and fun. Pick an image, cardstock, fun paper and maybe an embellishment or two. I already knew I wanted to make two circle cards. They are pretty fast and it's very rare to receive them. I used kraft cs for the card base and then went with a fun bright patterned papers. Keeping in the circle theme was easy since I used some Spellbinders, an embossing folder, and let the fun papers and images for the focal points. Unfortnately what took the longest was choosing two images. I really didn't want to do too much coloring so I knew it had to be a small image. I was flipping through my stamps and came across the owls from the Hoo Loves You set from TGF. Score! One down!
I love how fun the colors are here. The owl looks pretty cool perched on his make-shift bar. I wrote in that sentiment. Thought it was funny.
I thought to myself, why not keep it animal themed and chose another fun TGF retired set, Down by the Pond. I chose the adorable frog. I know he's not really an animal, more reptile, but hopefully you get the theme I was going for. A few little changes and here is the result.
Yes that is a cloud background, I am so lovin' how cool it looks! I'm addicted. LOL. I thought I chose the perfect sentiment stamp from AmyR stamps. When I saw it I giggled it was so perfect!
Isn't it perfect? hehehe, still makes me giggle. Alrighty my friends I have to get going, got a busy day ahead of me. I'll hopefully have another share for you tomorrow. Wow, I can't believe I've posted so many days in a row! Mahalo for stopping to see what I've been up to. I hope you have a fabulous day! Take care!
