Confessions of a distracted crafter today. As much as I enjoy my cardmaking and scrapbooking, I can't seem to get ahead of the game so to speak. This winter has been filled with some health challenges and other roadblocks in life. Most recently it has been a rare happening indeed when I send out my handmade creations to family or friends on time. In fact, lately, I have even been guilty of just plain missing some important family occasions.
Case in point for today's blog post is this card I created to honor my dad on his 65th birthday. It didn't reach him until more than a month past the happy day. My bad!!!
I found inspiration for my card on Pinterest. Don't you just love all the crazy cool ideas you can find there!?! You can take a peek at the inspiration card.
Here is what I made with for my dad, who spent the first half of his professional life on the Great Lakes. I loved the nautical theme of the Tommy paper pack for this card:
