Hey y'all. Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one and that it flew by quicker than mine did, lol. Do you have plans for the weekend? I've got a busy one planned. A big team meeting tomorrow morning, gotta go home and emboss the heck out of my swaps. Then tomorrow afternoon, our yearly girls get together for DMB. Yep, Dave. Matthews. Baby.!!!! (Ok, seriously I know the "B" is for band) My sis and I see them every year. On good years two or three times. :) Tomorrow our other best friend Penny is coming up from Richmond to join us. We've been doing this together for about 12 (maybe longer) years now. It's the one day a year that we are guaranteed to just have girl time. Sunday, it's time for us to show all the Great Dads in our life just how wonderful we think they are.
Sadly, I know not everyone has a great relationship with their dads. It's a sad fact that some men make better "donors" than dad's. I initially had one of those "donors". Sad but true. Then by some Amazing Blessing from God himself, my mom met my "Dad" when I was about 12. We always said he was an "Angel" sent from heaven.
No. Really. He's an Angel. Seriously, that's his last name, my last name. But, he's a real "Angel" of a man too, so it all works. Well, God Bless Him, he took on a pre-teen me and was brave enough to not only keep me but make me his by adopting me. Like I said, truly an Angel. Now I was a pretty good kid but, let's face it, he did get me at the worst time he could have. And poor daddy, nothing really to prepare him for me. I'm sure he can thank me for the majority of his grey hairs. On the other hand, at least I prepared him, mostly, for dealing with my two baby brothers Ethan and Eion. BTW- I love those sweet little guys. It's so sweet when I call and talk to the youngest Eion, he always calls me "sister", as in "Hey Sister". Too cute! On a side note- want to know what's not cute? Him telling his classmates about me...as in when all of his friends say they have sisters in such & such grade and Eion goes "Well I have a sister too and she's..... Let's just say Eion doesn't quite have the concept of me still being 29! ROFL!!!!! Kids say the darnedest things! Sweet Ethan however doesn't out me. Love you boys if someones reading this for you! MWAH!!!!
So here's the card I made for daddy this year-
|Easy Shirt card with Tie|
It's pretty clean and simple, but that's the kind of guy my dad is. This is a CASE of Brenda Keenan (she did her shirts with DSP) that I saw on Stampin Connection a web site just for SU Demonstrators. I was going to send him a different shirt card that I made and then I saw how to do this one and knew it was the one.
