Well another weekend has come and gone and I figured that I needed to try and get caught up with some of my blogging. I have had this card done for over a week now and am just now blogging about it. My mom approached me the Wednesday before Father’s Day and asked if it would be possible for me to do up a card for her to be able to give my dad from her for Father’s Day. Well what could I say, it was my mom asking for my dad! Of course I said “No problem mom”. So I went looking for ideas of what to make for her to give to dad. And I came across this adorable image that I had just recently gotten from Digistamps4Joy. The first thing that went through my head was “My favourite thing to do is to cuddle with you”. Of course the old saying of the best laid plans of mice and men applied to this. You see I was making this card in the wee hours of the morning and by the time I got to the sentiment part I had forgotten what I wanted to put on it lol. So this is what I came up with.

Isn’t this just the most adorable image you have ever seen? I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. It’s called “Friendship is” and you can find it here. The fold I did for it is called a Stand Up card and you can find the instructions for it at Photobucket here. The sentiment is from Shannon’s Sentiments (Unfortunately she has closed her store for the time being). I added blue stickles to the flowers just to jazz them up a bit…and I was done.
