Glad you got to see me.
~ Clyde Black (Dad)
Sassy runs in our family.
Starting with my Dad. Well, Dad was just a great joker. Really, he had a joke for every occasion.
So, after every visit, when we got ready to leave, he got the last joke. With a hug and a peck on the cheek, he'd laugh and say: "Glad you got to see me."
Dad's been gone for several years but the sass lingers.
My kids and I keep his joke running. Whenever we get ready to go it's a contest to see who remembers to say it first – "Glad you got to see me."
But, my girl got the last say.
After a weekend visit, I gave her a hug, a peck on the cheek and then I beat her to it . . . . "Glad you got to see me."
With a sly smile, she hugged me back and said: "That makes one of us."
Oh, Smack Down! I laughed so hard I nearly cried.
My Dad would be so proud!
Tips & Techniques
The Grassy Edges Die-namics don't have a bottom edge cut, which means you can make the grass as tall as you like. It's perfect for cutting out the base to go on a embroidery hoop frame. I added just a little Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the grass to make it look like it still had some morning dew on it.
Cut out the Party Banner twice and layer it with plain, darker cardstock for a shadow effect (like the Black Licorice Cardstock I used). I grounded the flags with Black Licorice Buttons and Hemp Cord.
My sassy daughter helps me keep the pulse on what's trending in the Indie craft world, and embroidery hoops are hot, hot, hot. I wrote some tips for how to create an embroidery-hoop-framed project here.
