Stamping with Dad

This is my dad.  He has a workshop behind our house, where he makes birdhouses, bow makers, heat tool holders, and holders for Dazzling Details.  He’s always asking what I’m doing and watching me get ready for classes.


He came into my studio a couple of weeks ago, and asked me if I had a birthday card he could send to his sister.  Do I have a card?  I have a hundred cards, but where’s the fun in that?

So, we sat down to make a card.  I made one along with him, so he could see how to do each step.  Originally, the greeting was supposed to be on the right, but he had a little trouble with that, so we covered it up with the balloons and he re-stamped the greeting on the left.

Then he got his hand in the black ink pad and smudged his card.  We covered the smudge with the yellow balloon that looks like it’s floating off the top of the card.  It just proves that THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, ONLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR CREATIVITY!!

Oh, and by the way, my dad is 92.

Didn’t he do a great job?  Way to go, Dad!

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you need a demonstrator, I’m happy to help!

  1. Your dad is so cute here! He did a great job and I love the design! He and I may have to talk about bird houses…I could use a few next year depending on if we get a chance to redesign the back yard.
    Bet your dad becomes a regular in your basement card making area soon!

  2. I love it, what a special fun time with your Dad, I am trying to get my Dad (84) to put his photo’s in an album and write his stories but what ever he is doing I love spending some time with him.
