You're the Best Dad! TESC#159

 Hello Delightful friends and family!
 Can you believe how fast this month has flown by! Tomorrow is the last day of May!  This morning, two of my grandkids (Jake & Addy) went with me to take my mom to have her cataract removed and while that was happening. the zoo is just a couple of blocks away so we headed over there. It was a gorgeous morning, the sun was out (a rarity in Eureka) and no wind. Perfect conditions! Well, almost... the zoo wasn't open when we got there so we headed over to Sequoia Park (walking distance) and as Addy (almost 3) got to the top of the slide, announced that she had to go potty, but alas, it was too late, she pee'd her pants! So we hiked back to the car and thankfully had a change of clothes in her bag. Did I mention she also stepped in dog doo? So I had that to contend with as well.... Just a perfect day, a normal day, a day that the Lord has made and I WILL rejoice in it, kind of day! Now we are back at home, Addy is napping, Jakob is "resting" and my mom is back at her home taking a nap (valium will do that to a person) and I'm here on the computer ready to share another card. Perhaps when I finish, I may take a little nap, too. But, what usually happens when I want to do that the phone rings or the kids are wide awake. So..... I'll be content with just folding the clothes and hanging out in cyberland.

Here is my card for the Taylored Expressions final sketch challenges (4 total) This is my second entry and I have two more to make before Friday to qualify for the grand prize! 

I used this Loyal (Authentique designer papers Bazzill card stock) Project Pantry Card Kit from Taylored Expressions.


Other ingredients: Ink - Memento, Nautical blue; Mini Twinkles for the tie pin. I've paper pieced the ties and the finished card is A2.

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a sunny Spring day!

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.  Psalm 34:7



  1. Wow, Natalie what a day. Sounded a little like my weekend. I kept my oldest daughter's kids so her and her hubby could have a nice weekend and boy did that little boy keep me awake. But I loved every minute of it.

    By the way looks as though we were on the same wave length getting those father's day cards ready. Love the ties and the paper you used. Very pretty my dear friend.

  2. Incredible! I love life with kids! LOL I'm sure there were also many other wonderful things you remember about the day to! There is always something to Praise the Lord about! Hope you got a nice little nap in! Those for me are special little treasures!
    Love your card you've shared! Great rhinestones on the ties as tie pins!

  3. WOW, all four!!! They are ALL amazing! You rocked this masculine themed card. Way to go Natalie! Thanks for playing with TESC!
