Welcome to SpantastiKreations 
This is the My Heart Belongs To Daddy Blog Hop
hosted by Jennifer from Scrappin Lil Turtle.
If you have arrived here from Tanya's blog
you are scooting along in the right direction. If you are just visiting my blog today and would like to start at the beginning of the hop you can start at Jennifer's blog. 
 
Jennifer organized this hop in honor of her father who
has passed and who she loved very dearly. 
She asked that we either honor our fathers or create a masculine project.

My father passed away when I was 4 so I don't remember too much about him but I did create a masculine birthday card. 

I designed this shape card using my Gypsy and my Simply Charmed cartridge. 
I LOVE how it turned out. Thanks to the fabulous hide feature on the Gypsy I was able to avoid cutting the cutsie smiley face that was originally intended for the tie. 
I sent this card to my brother (from another mother) for his birthday and being a 39 yr old man I didn't think he'd be into the cute smiley face, lol. 
I inked the edges on both the shirt and the collar. I added tiny collar buttons and a pearl tie "pin".
I certainly hopes he likes it half as much as I do. 

Your next stop along the hop is the fabulous Pam from Scrapbook Flair


Happy Hopping
Keep Kreating,
Erin
