"SweetStampin" Challenge Blog's #7 challenge has to do with Family First!

This week your card or crafty creation has to do with family and needs to have something on it that is based on a family member! Any family member!! You can enter a card, 3D object, Srap Book Page or whatever your crafty heart desires and creates!

This is my card for challenge #7!
It was for my Dad's 61st B-Day on Dec 13, 2009!

Here is something you don't know about me.... I am a huge cowgirl, but I come from a huge surfing family. My Dad shaped boards for the big guys when I was little and is an incredible surfer. My brother was a competitive sufer when we were younger and lives on a Hawaiian Island now. I surfed until I was about 15. I had a surf accident. (Long story short, my Mom used to call me calamity Jane). I figured out then that if I fell off of my horse at least I wouldn't drownd!! LOL ~ Well not really funny. So I stuck with my horses!! My Dad still surfs and shapes surf boards as much as he can!! (He is also a Chiropractic Doctor, so time is limited.) He's still awesome ~ As the paper read's "Old Guy's Rule!!"

The surfers are standing up off of the back ground papers. I created the HBDAYDAD with single stamps and smudged the edges to match. The old woody, I just love. We see a lot of those here!Well, that's just s tidbit about me!! LOLOLOL

Is everyone having a Happy New Year so far??? Yeah!

Hop on over to "SweetStampin" Challenge Blog and enter!!!

  2. I just love all your cards, they are so imaginative, you're brilliant! xxx

  3. This is a fantastic card for a man - great papers.

    Jack Russells are such characters and I'd be lost without him now - he is such fun to have around and great company.

  4. Very cool card. I've always wanted to try surfing but in New Mexico we don't have any waves... very little water at all. :) I tried to email you but just couldn't figure out how to. My email address is sumnne at yahoo dot com. Hope your having a wonderful day, V

  5. Always difficult for me to make a card for a man, but your card can represents a man card. Thank you for the inspiration.

  6. Hi Rachel Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. Really love your card. Wow Barrel Racing - have seen it at Houston Rodeo (one of my daughters lives there)
