Hiya Gramps


I made this birthday card for my daughter Candace's grandpa's birthday (mouthful).

I love that man.  Whenever I think of him, I smile.  And he was a tough cookie.
He's not my dad.  He's my daughter's father's dad (another mouthful).

I hope he likes this card.

 I have a really difficult time making cards suitable for men...and this one barely fits the bill...the little bow on that button just might cross the line a bit, but I don't think he'll mind.  He's really old. HA! Don't worry, he wouldn't mind the tease...it's a thing we have...insulting each other.   I know.  Disturbing.

You know he's one of these guys that comes across as crotchety, hard, tough.  And he is.  I remember being youngER.  I never wanted him angry at me.  He is scary direct.  You don't want to disappoint this man.

He tells you what makes him proud. And it's genuine.
He is just as genuine when he's upset.

So you never want to disturb that.

Yikes, right!?

Anyway, he really is amazing and this was for him.
And I really hope he likes it.

He WILL definitely call it a pansy-ass card...and then launch into our normal dialogue...

Oh, aren't you an electrical engineer, why are you making stuff like this when you could be engineering  the next amazing thing...and why aren't you working electrical engineering?  What is it exactly what you do? 

Hey, it's my hobby!  You know, like when you testosterone your way into the wood to conquer the Moose!

Yeah, exactly..you get the picture. That's our dialogue...with a smile and a hug.

He'll like it anyway.  Damn curmudgeon that he is.

Cheers all.

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets
