Happy Father's Day! (card)

Happy Thursday! Yesterday was a great day, we had Nicki's Graduation Ceremony and then the rest of the day just hung out.

So I decided to apply for a job, part time at the college. I did this over a week ago and I started to think for some reason that I wasn't going to get a call. I also applied at the animal shelter around the same time. I need a job to help pay for an unexpected financial situation that will come up next month. On top of that I want to save for our move next year. So as of yesterday morning I had not heard from anyone. Now on Monday I won an Elmer's Glue prize pack from a blog hop that was going on over at Nikki Sivils blog, I was EXCITED to say the least. I knew at that moment that good things would happen this week. LOL! Well yesterday I got the call from the college asking for an interview. I won't make much but they are willing to work around my schedule. So if I want to work a couple hours here and there in between classes and such then I can. I am SUPER excited. :-)

So today I have a card to share with you that I made for my dad. I used papers from Artful Delight's March monthly kit (sold out).

I used my Cricut and an svg file that I purchased from SVGcuts.com. Since I don't have many cartridges I usually purchase svg files from either SVGcuts.com or MyGrafico.com. There are so many cartridges out there that I want and I just can't afford to buy them. My next best alternative is buying individual files as needed from those two sites. :-)

I made a few changes to the card. Well nothing to the svg cuts just added some extra touches. I cut some clouds with my Cricut and used the as a mask for the sky. I used some removable adhesive, adhered them and then sponged around them with Broken China distress ink. Then for the patch of "grass" I just sponged some Peeled Paint distress ink.

For the inside of the card I used a font pre-programmed in my Cricut and welded the letters together.

I have to get this card in the mail today so it can hopefully (fingers crossed) can reach my dad by Saturday's mail delivery.

That's all I have for you today but be sure to stop by tomorrow because I will have a fabulous LO to share with you that DT member Debbie created. :-)

Happy Crafting!!

Fabulous card! I am sorry to hear about whatever is coming up next month. Financial stuff sucks and you certainly aren't the only one going through it. Hang tight. I'm so glad this week is going so well for you! Congrats on the job! Sometimes flexibility is so much more important than the amount you make. :) HUGS
