A Year In Review – Day 2

As I look back on all 282 posts of 2011 to choose my favorites, I am finding that my favorite ones are personal ones I have written that incorporate some designs into it. Like this one from June 2011 in anticipation of father's day… I had just finished reading James Dobson's, Bringing Up Girls who writes that a daughter's sense of self-worth and confidence is linked directly to her relationship with her dad.  If this is true, then my daughter Molly's going to be one confident lady!   He is always complimenting Molly on how pretty she looks and telling her how smart she is, but more importantly he is always interacting with her.   He is always explaining, always teaching, always entertaining.  

Our design team came up with wonderful ways to celebrate Father's with great cards. Jennifer Holmes has stamped the martini glass from PSA Frenchie here. I love a good series of three!

Our talented design team member Anthonette Chavez, stamped with PSA Rosettas here to create a beautiful pattern on the bottom portion of this card. She colored up the Rosettas and matched it to cardstock. The "Happy Father's Day" in black against the yellow really stands out. I love this card!

This very clean and simple card was done months ago by former design team member, Carly Robertson. The crown is stamped from PSA Cupcake. She's used only half of the outer ring to stamp and create the half-moon of dots. Looks great and is real visual surprise for me.

These cards were great Father's Day 2011 cards – don't you think!?
