Happy Father's Day

Woohoo!!! Weekend!!!

I don't have anything that's suitable for a Father's Day card so yeserday, I drew this chef girly and the grill. I gave them a home, in my hard drive along with my other hand-drawn images. :) Why the girl and the grill? :) Well, here's what was on my mind. Since a majority of the dads usually take control of the grill when there's a BBQ, I thought mom/wife can switch placde for a change. I know some of us do that anyway but I thought it would be cool to actually see it in a card. :) And the star represents all the dads to the kids. Our dads are the star/hero to our children.

The picture didn't come out too well but here was what I did with it. I made an abstract star with my Stika cutting machine and then stenciled it onto the black cardstock with glitter pen. I then use the same star and added a button on it. The card itself is plain and simple but then card means a whole lot.

This card is for Crystal's blog candy, to make a Father's Day card (really cool idea!), Roses on Paper Challenge and DU2DS, One for the Boys.
