This is the Father’s Day card my husband would be getting this year from his 11/2 yr old daughter and his 5 yr old son.
Making something in my craft room always relaxes me but this is a card that made me think.
Would any self-respecting man like to get this card?? Probably not. But would a dad like to get this card from his little girlie girl who thinks a card should wear a skirt – I know he would.
Then I contemplated even longer and harder whether I should post it on my blog AND submit it for a challenge – my reputation as a card maker/designer is at stake here if I put this out there and call it a masculine card. My kids are thrilled with this card, my husband would be tickled pink to receive it so why shouldn’t I be happy to give it to a man?
So I’m done thinking about this card and here is a shout out to all the craftswomen out there – who cares if your masculine card has some ribbon on it or a fancy flourish … Art should be fun and I love my fun, bordering on ridiculous looking, card.
Enjoy and have a Happy Father’s Day!
