This is the grand finale of our Cricut Everywhere series. What a fun week it’s been sharing lots of my inspiration with you and giving away fabulous prizes!
For some reason it seemed appropriate to save this video for last. I thought you’d enjoy seeing a few outtakes from the shoot along with my father’s unique sayings. He is a hoot!
Here’s a great picture of my Dad. Chocolate cake makes him happy!
One of my Dad’s other passions is restoring antique cars. He has done this as long as I can remember. Griffin Lumber Company was the family business, yet my Dad’s second love was his garage. Most people retire from work, but not Charles. He built himself a dealership! At one point in time, there were over 30 antique cars in his showroom.
For my sixteenth birthday, he gave me a 1965 Mustang convertible.
I still have it and drive it on sunny days. I get transported back to high school every time I sit behind the wheel!
When I first got my Cricut Explore, there were a few times where I had to “lay my ears back” and just do it (thanks Dad)! New technology can be intimidating at first, especially for an old school crafter like me. But boy oh boy how wrong I was. This machine is not only the very best in the industry, but it is so easy to use. It is so easy, it’s “stupid” easy! (to quote Fan Tom Gingras!)
With Father’s Day coming up on June 21st, I think it’s important we all take time to put together a heartfelt handmade card for Dad. Click here to make this gatefold card project using our Splendid Soirees cartridge: https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/28134914
There is one more giveaway for you to enter, and naturally we saved the best for last. Ready? Today you can enter to win the ultimate Cricut Everywhere starter kit: A Cricut Explore Air Machine, iPad Mini, a 1 Year Design Space subscription, new Anna Griffin Washi Sheets and all the materials to make the Father’s Day card above. Yes, that’s ONE prize! http://bit.ly/1K3tCnT
Just like the last four days, the contest will run from 2:00 p.m. EST today to 2:00 p.m. EST Monday, giving you lots of hours to enter. Cricut will select a winner at 4:30 EST Monday and the results will be posted on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OfficialCricut).
Good luck and thank you for joining me for this fun week of blog posts!
