Char is now a Senior and a Father's Day Card for Freshly Made Sketches

Happy Father's Day!! It is Sunday and though the weather could be better, I am enjoying listening to my husband playing video games to relax. He works so hard and has traveled A LOT this last month that it is nice to know that he can enjoy himself doing whatever he wants today.

Last night we celebrated Father's Day with my Dad. We went to dinner with my sister and family. I created a card for him using Freshly Made Sketches #292 as my inspiration.

I used Kuretake Gansai watercolor for my blue background and used scraps of blue paper from my scrap drawer to die cut the circles. The sketch below was my inspiration.

I also stamped and die cut images from Altenew's "Best Dad" set for the focal point. This set made it easy to make this masculine card!!

My nephew cracked me up last night asking why I hadn't posted it on instagram yet!!! It is nice to know I have at least one fan!!

To follow me on IG, my name is hobbitnoll. You have to request to follow me, which is kind of a pain, but since I work in a high school I have to be careful. We have a social media policy and students are not supposed to be your "friends" until they graduate.

In other news, I am OFFICIALLY on vacation. Whoot! Whoot!! Charlotte is also now officially a SENIOR and I have to tell you, it is killing me!!

This kid is my shopping partner, my television pal, and the one that I can get to laugh at me when I need it!! It scares me to think that this year will be her last year of high school. How did that happen?

She takes her driving test in a couple weeks and yesterday she drove Chris and I to the Father's Day dinner. (She turned sixteen in December.)

I sat in the back biting my nails the whole time!! Okay, not really but I played on my phone so I didn't pay attention. Chris is the coach in this area. I have no desire to be a driving instructor!!

That is all for today. I am hoping to be blogging more often now that it is summer. I also have BIG plans for learning to do videos. There is a pile of stuff just itching to be used!!

Thank you for stopping by and have a FABULOUS day!!
