Happy Father's Day

On Mother's Day and Father's day we like to enjoy the simple pleasures and the sweet sentiments. As far as gifts, we can buy ourselves what we like, but we enjoy the thoughtful homemade kind that the kids make.

My little girl made this candy bar wrapper for her daddy. She used her Stampin' Up Sock Monkey Stamp. She just loves that stamp.

The bag is something the kids made last year for my husband. We saw it in a craft magazine. We just refilled it again this year with peanuts! I also have a darling little boy. He is just not mentioned as much and that is because he does not craft! He does make very nice cards but likes to make computer generated cards, so I guess he is more into the Digital stuff!!! He does come up with some darling stuff though.

Check out these darling cupcakes! The recipe is from Disney Family Entertainment

Too bad I did not see this sooner. I am so tired of baking and still have to bake one more cake tomorrow for class on Monday. These are darling. I think I am kind of getting into this cake making stuff. I have subscribed to some really fun cupcake blogs!! For a girl who disliked cake, yes disliked it, I have gained weight over the past two weeks with all this baking! p.s. we did not make these, this is from the recipe site!

Here is a quick card I whipped up from the dogs. It is just K&Company stickers on some cardstock. Inside sentiment is Stampin'Up

How sweet the candy bar wrapper is. She did a good job on it. Same for the bag of nuts. I let time get away from me this yr. we usually make things too. That cupcake is adorable. Are you going to make them? I might try that for DH's birthday. Hope your husband has a wonderful Fathers day.

HI Bridget! I just checked to see if you had added anything but you had not. I will go back and look. No we are not making them because of all the stuff we have been making. Good idea to make them for his birthday!!
Have a fun day, tomorrow!!
