Father's Day Cards

Ok, so it has been a long time since I posted and I am really sorry for that. I got a new camera and am trying to figure out all of this stuff. Well, here it goes! I made a Father's Day card for my Dad and my hubby (from our precious canine) as my Mom had my boys and they made theirs at their Grandparent's house. I came across this neat digi paper for Father's Day and decided I just had to use it for my Dad's card! Sorry, can't remember where I got it from but it is a wonderful download. I printed it on photo paper so I could get a better print. I have to tell you I found these banner stamps at Archivers and they are just great except it is very tedious to cut all these out free hand. Needless to say my Dad liked his card as he was reading all the words from the paper.

Now, for my hubby's card, I used a recent picture of our family princess, our precious Abigail/Abby! She couldn't rest until I finished this card for her as she just adores her Dad! Needless to say it was a hit and my Hubby loved it!

Thanks for stopping by! I really enjoy your comments and I promise to post more tomorrow! I made a birthday card for my FIL as his birthday is July 1st!

Off Topic-Met Tim Tebow

Today was a beautiful day outside and I was fortunate to spend it with my fellow employees in the Jockey International Park to meet with our new spokesman Tim Tebow. This young man really has his act together and is a wonderful humanitarian. His foundation is helping our orphaned kids down in the Phillipeans by supplying them with items that they need. His foundation has already started to build a hospital down there for them.

When asked the question: "If you could meet anyone in the world and who would it be?" He answered, "Jesus, of course! Doesn't everyone?" His second choice is Abraham Lincoln, since he was a man of integrity and honesty. I would just love to pick his brain." I just have to say that we could not have picked a better person to represent our company! Below are a few picture and I am in the pink shirt standing next to him.

Jockey is so passiate about helping the adoptive children here in the US. We currently are working with a few groups with Post Adoption Services. Employees, volunteers, girl scouts are even helping out with making no sew fleece blankets for the kid's back packs. I am an Embassador on the Jockey Being Family Team and it really touches my heart for all the things a child has to go through before being adopted. These children are fighters but mostly the are just looking for a forever family.

I would like to start up a group of people to start making cards for these family to embrace their forever family and remember just how important it is to this child to make things works. Thanks for letting me rave, Enjoy the pictures!
