WD-40 and Duct Tape.....

Hello everyone -thanks for stopping by today!
Have you even looked at a stamp for the first time and just immediately knew what you were going to create with it?  Well, when our Peachy Queen, Kathy, shared the Made on Planet Earth stamp set with the Design Team, I knew exactly what to do with one sentiment in particular....

So, how many of you have a Daddy or a hubby who can fix "all things" with either WD-40 and/or Duct Tape?  Let me tell you, those were 2 things my Daddy was never without -especially the Duct Tape!  We used to give him such grief over the fact that he thought anything could be fixed with a roll of Duct Tape.  Today happens to mark the 6 year anniversary of my sweet Daddy's passing and I wish with all my heart that he were still with us so that I could give him this card. He had the best sense of humor and I know he would get such a kick out of this card!  I can just see that goofy little grin of his and imagine that wonderful laugh of his!

So, before I get too mushy, let me tell you how I put this one together:

*The fun, printed papers are from the "Monsters and Robots" paper stack by Recollections
* I used the Spellbinders die "Small Deckled Rectangles" for the small mat
* The WD-40 can is actually an SVG file of a hairspray can that I re-vamped.  I googled WD-40 to find out what colors to use and went from there!
* My banners were cut from cardstock then covered with duct tape
*I stamped my sentiment on cardstock then layered it onto more cardstock covered with duct tape
*A few silver brads added to the metallic look of this card

And, here's a pic of my Daddy "back in the day".  Good lookin' fella, huh?

Today's post is no way meant to be sad.  My Daddy was truly one of a kind and the first man I ever loved. He taught me many wonderful life lessons in the way he lived his life and I will always be honored to be called his daughter.  I know that he is pain-free and sitting at the feet of his Lord, waiting for his family to join him again one day and that makes me smile.  So....thanks for joining me today for my kinda funny/happy/mushy post and I'll be seeing you soon....

Until next time,

    I think you and I could have some belly laughs about these two items - my Grandpa practically slept with them. I'm pretty sure every item in his house had been touched by wd40, duct tape, or windex. This post put a great big smile on my face :)
