I miss you dad!

Thinkin' of Oregon

Michaela and I went to visit my dad and step-mom a few weeks ago. (See pics here and here.) It was the first time I had been to their new place in Oregon. I just don't get to see my dad often enough :( I really wish he lived closer. My dad is so funny! I give him all the credit for my sense of humor. Thanks dad!! My step mom is an awesome crafter. And yes...she is addicted to rubber stamping! The big joke is that dad sold his boat so she could buy more stamps. Wonder what he will need to sell next? Maybe his tractor? (just kiddin' dad!)

I though I would share this card I made using The Saltbox Studio stamps. I'm sending this to my folks because I MISS THEM! Since they have a bunch of cute little farm animals - I think this card totally fits. And the sentiment has that little twist of humor....cause you know I gotta have some humor in there :) hee hee hee

The stamp I used to make
the cloud is from A Muse. I bought it up in Oregon. That grass is Spring Meadows Speckles from Judi Kins. Cool stuff huh!

Stamps - The Saltbox Studio Sheep, Sheep Sayings, Fences (all clear stamps), A Muse Art Stamps Scallop Label
Paper - SU Wild Wasabi; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Bazzill Brown Textured CS
Ink - Tsukineko Memento Rich Cocoa;
Misc - Copic Markers, Judi Kins Spring Meadows Speckles; Art Institute Designer Dry Clear Glue, Prima Flower, Dimensionals; Misc Brad

I am sorry your Dad is so far away! Mine is close and is a retired farmer, who after 8 years just bought a tractor to mow and work around the yard with. And my Mom stamps. So funny! I like your card-you are a good daughter!
