Hope all the fathers out there had a wonderful father's day. Below is the card I made my dad to go with his gift. It was a quick one using some scraps from the Kaisercraft Rock Pool collection.
Somewhere online a while ago I saw a card idea for father's to be for father's day and decided to do something a bit similar for my husband knowing this is his last father's day before he becomes a dad. So I made him a card stating: "You are being promoted", with a pull tab that states "To Dad". The card I saw simply stated you've been promoted but I wanted to make it a bit more interactive and I know Simon. He would have said not yet if I'd stuck with the wording of the card I saw lol
To go with the card, I also made him a Dad survival kit for fathers-to-be lol
In it I have placed the following items and included the below inside the card in case the photo above is not clear:
Dad Survival Kit for the Father-To-Be
Toothpick – To help pick the good out of all situations
Candle – For when you are burning at both ends
Pencil – To help write their wrongs
Eraser – To remind you that all parents make mistakes
Peg – For when it’s your turn to change the nappy
Matchstick – To help keep your eyes open
Dice – To remind you how unpredictable your life will be
Rubber band – To help you stay flexible
Tissue – For cleaning up their little messes
We had a mammoth weekend of celebrating a friend's wedding Saturday night then visits to both dad's on Sunday so I got to give him his card in between father's day visits. I think he really liked it so it was so worth it to make him smile!
And here is the card I made for Saturday's wedding:
But today is also a special day. My Dexter's 1st birthday! Cannot believe our first baby is already a year old. He is currently enjoying a special treat all on his own while his brother has a snooze. And Simon and I did have a bit of fun making him a quickie party hat yesterday. He was most unimpressed lol
Look at how little he once was...
