Funny Father's Day Card, Craft Shows (?) and Glitter Earrings

So this card isn't really blog worthy, but it's fun, so I wanted to share. I made this for my dad for Father's Day. I wanted to hand make a card but he's more of a "funny card" kind of guy. And he farts a lot. So, this is what I came up with:

I used the outline4letters alphabet stamp from The Stamps of Life for the 'Father,' and colored them with my Copic markers. The smaller letters are the miniabc2stamp set. And I just put the card panel on a base of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.

In other crafty news, I applied for two craft fairs this fall. I'm currently waiting to be accepted. They weren't cheap - the two together are costing me $175 to sign up for. And I'm really hoping they'll approve both handmade greeting cards and earrings, but I know jewelry tends to fill up fast, and I'm nervous they won't. But I can't get myself out there unless I try, so here's hoping! I haven't done a craft fair since before Austin was born, I don't think. I might have done a couple here and there but I don't remember consistently doing them since then.

And finally, I made up some new earrings last night with GLITTER! Glitter is my favorite and I've found this thick glitter canvas with chunky glitter that is just gorgeous. The glitter doesn't shed off and it looks great against the faux leather I paired it with. I'll also be pairing some with genuine leather in the future. Check them out here in my Etsy shop.

I have more of this canvas on the way in more colors and I am just SO excited to be making these. They're new, and fun, and I love that it's a bit of a mix between my jewelry making I used to do and my paper crafting I do now. :)
