- I had a complication after my c-section that caused me to end up need a lot more recovery time - but luckily now I'm healthy!
- Sammy is healthy! She'll be 8 months tomorrow and she's absolutely just the most fabulous baby ever! Being a Mom is the absolute biggest change but best thing about life!
- By Husband switched jobs, which was stressful but now he is MUCH happier in his new situation!
Needless to say, it's been a stressful few months! I really didn't do much crafting during this time, but I did get back in the saddle for Father's Day!
First - this I made a month before Father's Day but I couldn't wait to put it up in our house! It's a shadowbox that holds bottlecaps! I saw it in Pinterest and figured I could make a nice one for a LOT less than the one that I saw had cost. I was able to make the entire thing for about $32! =) I got the vinyl lettering on Etsy for $9 and the shadowbox at Michael's with a 40% off coupon for $20! Then my husband cut a hole in the top of the box for us to toss the caps in! I love how it turned out:
In addition to the shadowbox, I made some Father's Day cards for my husband's first Father's Day and my dad's first as a Grandpa! We had a LOVELY weekend of friends and family! Here's the first card:
Then onto the next card:
On this one I freehand cut out the tree and used mostly Lawn Fawn stamps to create the sentiment and cloud background! I had the owl rubber stamp from ages ago (an oldie but a goodie!) and I colored everything with copics! Grandpa definitely thought it was "Owlsome" hehe!
It's been a long time since I got inky and I must say that it felt REALLY good! I'm hoping to have more time to work on stuff in the future - both including cards and scrapbooking stuff!
I hope you enjoyed these cards today! =D Have a crafty week!
