Hope you all had a wonderful week! (Honey, if you are reading this and it isn't Sunday yet, then consider yourself reminded :o) ) It is Friday, and that means it is time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz. This week, the lovely Dawn is hosting - oh, wait - that's me! Well, I can be lovely some of the time. I hope I picked a good challenge for everyone - after some deliberation, I decided on Fancy Folds (a card/project with more than one fold). I always have the best of intentions when it comes to straying from the typical folded-in-half card, but somehow that is always what I end up making. So, if you are like me, then this is your chance to break free from the rut. Having said that, when it came time to make my card, I could not decide what type of card to make. I finally settled on a fusion of gate fold and easel.
However, before I show you the card, it does require some explanation. Around mother's day, I was brainstorming ideas for my mother-in-law's mother's day card and, being lovely, I thought I would ask my husband if he had any ideas or wishes for it. He pondered a brief moment, and then replied that he would like an image of a toddler bent over in half with his hands on the floor and behind sticking up in the air. What??? Really? So, we are working on potty training our son, but I'm pretty sure his mother wouldn't have wanted a card with a kid in the 'wipe my bum, please' pose for mother's day. And, does such a stamp even exist? So, I try to reason with him and get him thinking in another direction - any other direction. Being brilliant, I ask him what he would want on a father's day card. He pondered a brief moment, and then replied that he would like an image of a toddler bent over in half with his hands on the floor and behind sticking up in the air. I gave up. But, wouldn't you know it - a stamp like that does exist! Well, close enough - the teddy is probably toddler aged.
So, onto my card, which is my husband's father's day card from our 1 year old. Front cover:
