Cards for the world's greatest Dad's!

Don't you find it insanely hard to make a card for a man?!?! Am I the only one?!?! Luckily the SCS challenges keep us on our toes and they teach us how to make fabulous folded shirts that make PERFECT Dad's Day cards!!! Don't ya think???

This card was inspired by Cambria Turnbow who makes some amazing cards! I just LOVED the cuttlebug embossing folder she used as a background, I never even thought to use them for a man's card!! I used the new cuttlebug design Traffic Jam, Certainly Celery cardstock with So Saffron and the argyle patterned paper from the SU Designer Paper Preview Pack...say that three times fast! HAHAHA

I think my brother-in-law(s) and my grumpy ol' dad might really enjoy this card. Finally something that fits them. Their birthday cards were Cosmobella saying "Cheers!" and they all had funny looking expressions when they opened them. I mean come on....the Bella was supposed to be ME!!! Duhh! ;)

A little vacation...

What a fabulous weekend I had! We left Thursday night and got down to Cayucos just before midnight, got settled into our beach condo and passed out.

Why is it when you're on vacation your body insists on waking up early?? The one time I can sleep in and my body says "WAKE UP!".

We took a tour of Hearst Castle, what an amazing place! I have way too many pics so just thought I'd pick my favorite....care to take a dip?
We spent 3 days wandering the coast between Cayucos, Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo and even Solvang (what a cute little Dutch town!). The plan was to leave on Sunday and head back home so we could use Monday to recoop. Yea, well....didn't happen. We stumbled into Carmel and that was the end of that!
It was so wonderful there! The shops, the restaurants, the homes, the beach, the people...the DOGS!!! Seriously, if you don't have a dog then you won't fit in Carmel. EVERYONE was walking around town with their pup, the restaurants even had separate Pet menus!!!! Once the shops close down everyone heads to the beach to walk along the gorgeous white sand and, you guessed it, let the dogs run free along the beach. So next time we visit Carmel, I'll have to rent a dog!

But you know what I noticed?! There is not one scrapbook/stamp store in the entire town!!! Can you believe it?!?! All those adorable stores, all that tourism...it would be the perfect fit!!

I can't wait to get back to some of my projects, I have a Stamp Play night coming up on Friday and then Stampers 10 club meeting is on Saturday....so much to look forward to. AND the new catty is almost here! Can you believe it?!?!?! Time is just flying by!
