If you happen to live near a Krispy Kreme, make sure you stop by today–you get a FREE donut to celebrate! I actually took my kids after school today. The line was a little long, but it was definitely a great way to end the week!
Father’s Day is right around the corner. Honestly, I can’t believe today is June 1st! How did that happen?!?
So if you are looking for a quick and easy (and great looking!) card to use for Father’s Day, look no further than Close To My Heart’s Father’s Day Cardmaking Kit!
Now don’t let the name of this kit fool you. It has much more to offer than just making Father’s Day cards. I mean how many of those do you really need, right? The kit comes with 2 different card designs that you can make 2 different ways–meaning you have a total of 4 options if you wanted! You receive enough supplies to create 12 cards which is pretty awesome.
These first 2 pictures are of the 2 layout designs for this kit. The first picture is what I created. You’ll notice that I tweaked it a bit from the original designed one.
I kept a white border around the entire card. This allowed me to raise up the layers with some 3-D Foam Tapeand wrap the twine around without creating a bulky bulge to my card. I also decided that a bow didn’t seem as manly to me so I did a couple of knots instead. The final difference was that I used less of the Black Dots. I really like how it turned out. But I also really like the original, too!
So if you’d like a fun card kit that has wonderful interchangeable designs perfect for Father’s Day and beyond, grab yourself a Father’s Day Cardmaking Kiton MY ONLINE CTMH STORE. There’s still time to make a homemade Father’s Day card!

Did you know today is National Cat Lady Day? I actually didn’t until I heard it on the radio this morning. My daughter, a HUGE fan of cats, was delighted to hear the news. So in honor of the day, I whipped up this cute card.

My kids have already been pondering what type of shenanigans the leprechauns will be up to this year. If you are looking for some last-minute ideas, check out my post on Leprechaun Tricks.
And then there are the variety of plans to trap a leprechaun.
One of the first leprechaun traps we made was this hat. You can follow my step-by-step tutorial on how to create this trap if you’d like. This year it seems like homemade slime is going to play a part in our trap. My daughter is obsessed with making her own slime. Michaels has some great tutorials for DIY slime if you are interested.
