I've been really busy the past couple of days and while I've done some crafting, it's been more on the lines of coloring and Zentangle. So, I'm sharing a card I made a couple of weeks ago when I was playing with some Kanban images. Love the coffee/chocolate theme of this set. Almost felt like cheating because the images are all ready to go...just punch out. I added some gold Krylon paint pen around the edges of the layers and all the top elements are popped up. Have a great Father's Day weekend with your special guys!!!

Wow...posting two days in a row!! It must be summer! I found this little girl all stamped up and colored hiding in my stash of supplies. I had colored her for a particular project and ended up using a different image for the project. So here she is today. Magnolia image, SU! papers, sentiment and punch, MS border punch. Colored with Copic markers. Thanks for stopping in.

My Father's Day card for my dad this year. The image is a digi from Mo's Digital Pencil. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The paper with the tools on it is from DCWV but as yet, I have been unable to get my hands on a whole stack. One of my stampin' sistahs was checking out what I was working on while I was coloring and said she had the perfect paper for my image. Thanks, Penny!! My dad has always been one to tinker and do all the fix ups around the house. Even at 84, he is still quite the handy man!

The refreshments were all sorts of junk food, complete with a chocolate fountain and lots of dippers. The lady in the black dress behind the table, is our fabulous art teacher and creator of the city skyline, Tasha Strigle!!
Here's the team, along with my granddaughter Kyli, who manages to find her way into most pictures...what a cheeser! From left to right, Verlinda Colding (reading para), Tasha Strigle (art), me (invites, tea light roses and general labor), and our leader Pattie Stanley (classroom sub doesn't even begin to describe her talents...she does it ALL!).
And just me! It was fun, but so glad it's behind us. Only three more days with the kids and one work day. The years just go by faster with each one. I will say good-bye to ten eighth graders this year from my class. They are a great group. Four of them came to the dance, the most ever from my class!
Well, the rest of my day is to be spent with granddaughter Kyli and maybe a little stamping later on. Have a great Sunday!

The theme is "A Sweet Formal Affair" and everything is done in candy, cupcakes, and lots of formal black and white against a dramatic city skyline. I'll post more pictures of the decorating tomorrow. We were at the school until ten last night decorating the cafeteria and will be back up there in a few hours to put on the finishing touches, get the food ready, and, of course, get all dolled up ourselves to be ready by 7 this evening.
