Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my dad and father-in-law!  Here are the cards I made especially for each one of them!  Since Jimmy Joe is a cowboy at heart, I had to make him a cowboy boot card.  I found a template online and printed it the size I wanted.  I had a lot of fun with this one!!!!!
Next up is the one that I made for my dad is a tribute to his life on a far and a familiar saying we heard growing up!  Opening up the barn doors you read the saying "I'd Walk 10 Miles in the Snow Uphill Both Ways".  The inside of the card says "to Wish You a Happy Father's Day"
The should have received the cards in the mail Friday or Saturday.

Latest Crochet Project

When I look at this picture I think, "Wow!  That looks like it came right out of a catalog."

Guess what!  I made that blanket.  That room that it's in is the babies room for one of my coworkers.  I cannot believe how awesome this picture is!!!!

We had a baby shower at work a few weeks ago for our Student Services coordinator.  Him and his partner are having a little baby here in a few weeks.  I was able to get him to talk about the decor in the babies room one day at work when the power went out for 15 minutes.  It was too easy!  Here is the picture I took for keepsake purposes.
After I finished the main portion of the blanket, I was contemplating how I wanted to finish the edging.  I was wondering what it would look like to use both the white and tan yarn and I alternated the stitches.  One tan, one white, one tan, one white...................  It took awhile, but it was well worth it.  To me, it brought the right finishing touches to the blanket!
