More Father's Day!

Oh what a crappy way to wake up this morning - bad dreams.  I hate bad dreams - you know the kind that make you feel like crying your eyes out?  Not the scary nightmare kind, but the emotionally exhausting kind... I hate that.  But I've had my coffee and I think I've shaken it off - so let's get to the good stuff.  ;)

I have another Father's Day card today that I'd like to enter into a few appropriate challenges, and here they are:

This card is for my husband - we recently got chickens and we've all been teasing my husband calling him "Farmer Jeremy".  hee hee  So I had to purchase this adorable digi stamp (it comes in a set of 6 stamps including 4 farmers, one hen-house/coop, and a border of chickens for only $1.00!!!) from Digi Web Studio called Chicken Farmer.  The barn was from another set I already had from Digi Web Studio (also $1.00!) called Farm Animals 1.  I colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and a black fine-tip marker.  The feather (and that polka dot ribbon) has been in my stash (my hoarded supply) forever!  I knew some day the perfect project would come along and just scream for that feather!  LOL  The sentiment is from Jellypark - I used circle punches (1 3/8 and 1 3/4 inches) from Stampin' Up!  I added the wooden alpha beads as a little last-minute embellishment, as I hate to leave corners "empty".  hee hee  That pretty red and white gingham paper was a digi paper freebie that I found at MeinLila Park (digital freebies).  Oh - and the barn was a free coloring page I found online here.  Have a great day, my friends - I've got just a couple of projects to complete today and I plan to lay out in the sun with Cass for a bit.  We picked up some yummy-looking pastrami (local) yesterday, so we're going to keep it simple and have sandwiches for dinner tonight.  I made Jeremy's secret-recipe cole slaw to go along with it - sooooo good (if you don't like cole slaw, you have to try mine before you give up forever!).  Peace.


  1. Oh Jen this is such an adorable creation! Hubby's going to love it! The added feather and the DAD pieces are fabulous embellishments! Great job!
    Hope you've gotten past those terrible dreams ... I know exactly what you mean ... I've had the same dream several times over the past few weeks that someone has stolen my car ... Uuugh ... really upsets your day!
    Anyway ... Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood ‘One For The Boy’s’ challenge and please come back again soon!

  2. Such a sweet card! Thanks for playing along with our Father's Day challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters.

    On a side note I want to say what admiration I have for you to be a Chemo Angel. I am going to check into that. I lost my two children in a car crash at the ages of 3&5. It is horrible road to walk. After that crash my sister changed her life around and just graduated last year and is now a Radiation Technician/Therapist so she can help and reach out to people. Once you go thru any sort of loss you view the world in a different way. I may have to copy that tattoo because I am planning on getting one in memory of my children. God bless and RIP your dear friend Melanie. Sorry for your loss especially at such a young age. Sending many hugs.
