Thinking ahead to Father's Day on this Mother's Day weekend

Not to neglect you Mom's out there for sure!  You deserve props as well!  In fact, I have a card, a little cartoon AND a fun video to share.  So if that doesn't make you feel special, well I don't know what will. :)  So here goes...

First is my little card that I made for my Ma.  I'll note that I used my Green Acres set from Paper Smooches on this card.  I just love the little chicky looking up at Mama, so sweet.  My own Mama, she is a VERY special woman and deserves so much happiness!  I wish I could spend MD with her.  I will get to see her in about a month though and really looking forward to that!  I love you mom!  And here is the cartoon and the video, enjoy!

Next is a Daddy's Day card.  In truth, I didn't originally make it for Father's Day, just a card for any old person.  But then I was thinking about how you could play up the word "Pop" and make it into a father's day card and how perfect!  There is a pocket on the inside that would fit a pair of movie tickets or a gift card perfectly!  My dad LOVES movies and popcorn, so this might be just what I make for him.  :)  But for now, since I have a month plus until FD, I'll just enter it into the Moxie Fab World Challenge for Gift Card Holders- here.

I haven't made many shaped cards, but the little cloud in the Paper Smooches Cut Loose kite stamp looked just like a popcorn kernel and I couldn't resist!  The words come from the Lawn Fawn Quinn's ABC's set.  It looks so good to me I could eat it!  That might be because I haven't been eating carbs for the last week though and I REALLY want to. :) 

So, to all you Mom's and Dad's out there, enjoy your day!
