First Fathers’ Day

on June 17, 2013

Yeah, I’m a day late, I’m also the tired mother of a newborn so daddy hasn’t received his first fathers’ day present and card yet.

Ok so the present still isn’t ready. I need to print a picture for a photo frame for daddy to put on his desk at work. It’s the photo the midwife took of daddy in his blue scrubs holding Elvis moments after he was born.

The card, though, that’s what took the effort. On the front of the card is a plain box with the title My Masterpiece and space to draw in the box, labelling it underneath with name and age.

Today I had the time to enact my plan. I have these tiny mini inkpads and I took the blue and yellow (daddy’s football team colours) and carefully inked up Elvis’ hand and foot seperately before pressing them onto the card. With the hand, I did a finger or two at a time and wet-wiped them immediately. With his foot, I inked up a whole section and the toes – feet don’t curl into a ball like hands!

Oh and he was asleep through this!

The inks came off straight away with the first wetwipes I reached (happened to be Huggies). I’m quite proud of Elvis’ artwork. It truly is a masterpiece!

    Oh so cute! I can’t wait to post the present we made for daddy! But it still hasn’t reached his ship so we can’t spoil the surprise posting it on the blog yet! 😛

      Bless. My hubby was in the navy when we first met, glad he left and doesn’t miss these things so I can only imagine how difficult it is for you and Ethan. Can’t wait to find out what you guys made 🙂
