Try It Out Tuesday - Happy Father's Day

The head of the SCACD design team is the one & only Suzanne Dean (check out her yummy blog). She gave me a heads up on the challenge for my SCACD Stampers Spotlight week. Each week the design team posts their lovely challenge creations on the store's blog, Follow Your Heart. I needed to make a Father's Day card & small gift. What great timing for me. With my busy schedule I am so happy to have my Dad all taken care of before his special day...and I even have time to pop it in the mail. Suzanne had posted a gift using these great popcorn boxes she found at Michales. They are perfect. Well I was inspired so I stopped by JoAnns & found them on clearance. Score!!
My dad is a total kid at heart & the biggest tease of them all. I remember as a kid I had to tell him to "stop teasin' me". It never worked & I am grateful he never did. I love those memories. Well my dad never got a boy...just me but I was a total tomboy so I made up for it.

This wonderful cutie Stuart & puppy is by Eat Cake Graphics. Susana has this guy along with a ton of other wonderful stamps. You have your choice of Lockhart's, Anki's Sweethearts, Victoria Case, Fairy Song Art Stamp & she will have some exclusive Elizabeth Bell stamps next month! So exciting. I used some of my Close To My Heart stash of paper and colored these guys with a combo of CTMH markers & copics. The more I use my copics...the more I fall in love with them. I am slowly growing my collection.I will be filling that popcorn bucket with my dad's favorite candy, Boston Baked beans along with some yummy popcorn. I was going to add his fav, Mountain Dew but I knew the post office might have issues with liquids and I mail all my packages after they close. Oh well...I will include a coupon for him to use. Make sure you stop by the store blog tomorrow....some very exciting things will be happening. Susana has been planning some really BIG FUN and you don't want to miss it!! Word just in...the baby's breath spritz in now in stock. How is that for superb customer service.
