I've taken a little deviation from crochet today to make a special father's day card for my dad. It took me ages to think of something interesting to put on the card - shifting from a drawing to random scraps of paper making a patchwork-like picture on the front. Eventually I decided that because I am so far away from him, that I would take a photo of me holding a sign that said 'Happy Father's Day" and stick it on a card with some embellishments.
I have some very masculine looking paper stock, so armed with a pencil and my craft knife I set to work. I drew out all of the letters first, then started to cut them out. Seven letters later, I was beginning to arrange them on my white paper sign and this is what I saw:
I'm delighted that I didn't give in and buy a pre-made card that would fail to capture the correct sentiment. Handmade is always much better and I would not be so smiley now if I hadn't spent this time making for my da.
I hope there are lots of happy da's about this weekend. :)
