Just Like Daddy

      Those of you with sons will recognize this situation immediately - your little guy clumping around in daddy's boots.  lol  It was adorable and we all said to ourselves, "Someday he'll really be walking in his dad's steps."  Little did we know that it would seem only days later that he was marching out of the house, headed for college or maybe his first real job, looking just like dad!

     This fun image is from Conie Fong and is called "Just Like Daddy."  I colored it with ProMarkers (including the smudge on his t-shirt because we all know that boys get dirty without even trying), and I cut the image with a Gina Marie die.  To cut it as a long, narrow rectangle, I had to cut once, then move the die and cut it a second time.  The die I used is actually about half again as wide.  That's just a tip for how to make your framing dies more versatile.  :-D

     I used two blue dp from a Recollections stack and the solid blue background has been embossed with my 'Linen' EF.  I added a wrap of baker's twine as the finishing touch on this CAS and masculine card.

As You Like It (see 2nd paragraph)

     That's all I have for today.  Be sure to spoil the dads in your family this coming Sunday.  Or better yet, spoil them every day just because they deserve it and we love them!  :-D  Happy Crafting  NanaConnie

Great card NanaConnie. That dirt patch on the shirt is a really inspired idea because as you say what boy ever has a clean shirt even 5 minutes after they have put it on! Thank you for entering the Anything Goes Challenge at Scribbles Designs.
