happy father's day!!

sending {{BIG HUGS}} to Dads everywhere today!

My sweet daughter altered a plastic bucket with her artwork & filled it with all sorts of fun toys she hand picked for her Dad (a water balloon launcher, water balloons, beach balls, squirt guns, pool goggles, hershey kisses, rubber duckies, light up toys & more!) she had to give it to him the second they woke up this morning LOL!

here's the card we made that you can see in the photo above. it was inspired by all the MFT DT teasers that used the fun, new First Place Award Ribbon Set- you can find the list of blogs & be inspired too here!

once Mimi & i saw the teasers, we HAD to have this set & of course we used tons of our new fave--liquid pearls ;) Mimi chose all the papers & totally had fun building her award ribbon with me- she loves this fun set as much as i do & i just LOVE that!

here's the inside:

we think this purple cardstock is just gorgeous!

stamps: MFT First Place Award Ribbon & Die set, inside sentiment is from MFT Pure Innocence Heart Stripes
ink: memento tuxedo black
paper: Xpress-it blending cardstock, MFT cardstock (grape jelly, black licorice, fossil), pattern papers are BoBunny (Blast Off 6x6 pad)
accessories: ranger liquid pearls (buttercup), jody's dimensional boosters

we have lots of cooking to do today (and apparently lots of water balloons to fill)-DAD has requested quite a dinner so i better get crackin'!

Ah, I love it! Yep, I had to have this set too, but haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Thanks for the inspiration!

Mimi has great taste in cs and toys. I think every Dad would love that selection, especially in this heat.
Mimi's also got mom's artistic talent. It must be lots of fun crafting with her.
