Father's Day card

My 4 year old son stamped this card to give to my husband for Father's Day. He picked the pink cardstock and amazingly stamped the "print pattern" background stamp straight all by himself!! Sadly, that stamp set will be retiring at the end of July.
He and his 2 year old sister both took part in the stamping and decorating of the card. She stamped the flowers and the sentiment and glued on the circles after I punched them out with my 3/4" circle punch. My son cut out the sentiment and highlighted it with the yellow marker. I folded over the pumkin pie paper edge and pierced the holes, while my son picked out the brads and then proceeded to put them in the holes and fold over the backs himself. He also stamped the hedge hog image from the "Moose You" stamp set.

The inside of the card is beautifully scribbled with my daughter's artwork in a multiple colour design using my SU markers. My son printed his name by himself across the middle of the inside of the card.

Their Daddy loved it!

We had a great two week holiday in Victoria, then in Mission, then camping in Golden Ears Provincial Park (with a few too many black flies for our liking, of which most loved the taste of our children - especially that tender tasty spot behind their ears!). In the middle of all that, my husband and I enjoyed a Cirque du Soleil perfomance of Corteo in Vancouver...absolutely phenomenal!! I highly recommend it to everyone. It was amazing and shocking and beautiful!

I hope to post a few things now that I'm back. Thanks for looking today!
