MFT "Baby Shark" Die

 Hello everyone.  

My card this month is dedicated to my son-in-law.  As soon as I saw this die in the shop I just knew I had to have it.  I would always try and give my son-in-law, now deceased, a card special to him when it was his birthday.  I remember doing a sloth one year because my grandchildren and daughter would often call him one when he was a bit slow to do things, mind you his shift work as a dump truck and dozer driver for the mines contributed to some of that .  Luke had a tattoo of a shark on his shoulder blade that he was very proud of and once told me he would have loved to have been a marine biologist so he could study sharks.  There wasn't a shark documentary he hadn't seen.

After I bought this die, I thought, what are you going to do with it now - Luke has gone but not forgotten; losing his life in a tragic accident last year five days after Christmas.  I came to my senses and thought why should that stop me from giving him a birthday card.

My daughter and grandchildren have a cabinet with memorabilia from Luke's life  and I decided I would make the card and hope my daughter would put it there.  Of course, it's in the special cabinet and everyone loved it.

What am I doing, the tears are flowing while I write this.  I wasn't going to get this personal on this blog.  I should have penned my own first.

Anyhow I had better show you the card and get over to my personal blog.  I hope I didn't upset anyone by going off track here.

The first thing that you need to think about when planning birthday parties for kids is what theme you are going to go with. baby shark party entertainer near me
