My idea of fun/relaxation is making cards. This past week I made a set of 8 to give as a gift, and I was pleased with how they turned out. Here are a few of them:
This was my absolute favorite:
And I liked this:
But now I am in the midst of a dilemma. My Dad's birthday is this week and I am fairly (but not entirely) certain this will be his last birthday. I so badly want to make him a perfect card. It's important to me. But I greatly struggle with making masculine cards. I made the card below for him, but it is miles from perfect. It made me cry. I have time to try again, but I fear I will fail.
I know perfection is an unreasonable expectation, but I hope I can at least create something I am pleased with. I know Dad will appreciate anything because he's my Dad, but for some reason I need to be unashamed of this, his last birthday card. So, yes, I am looking for perfection.
