My Time Made Easy - A Day for Dad!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to the first day of peeks for the amazing May Release at My Time Made Easy!!  I'm super excited to share all the projects I've created with the new goodies that will be available in the shop beginning on May 1st ... Lauren continues to out-do herself each and every month!

Today's peek project had me going WAY outside my usual feminine, pink, frilly, shabby and vintage comfort zone to create this ultra masculine and SUPER CA-UTE gift set for my hubby!

Introducing ... BLUE COLLAR!

Unbelievably CUTE, right???  This template was easy peesy to assemble -- mine came together in less than five minutes and then I spent a couple more minutes decorating the top to look like my hubby's favorite Corvette Camp Shirt!  His 'baby' is his 2008 Black Corvette, so for the first Christmas after he purchased his car, I got him a shirt that looks almost identical to this!  I went onto one of the Corvette websites and downloaded a racing emblem graphic, resized it to fit my camp shirt gift box and adhered it onto the front of the shirt!!

{This was us last Halloween heading out to a costume party!}

My hubby's second love after his car is his golf game, so I thought it was perfect to include a couple sleeves of golf balls and tees inside his cute little Corvette Camp Shirt gift box!!

It'll be hard to wait until June for Father's Day to roll around to give this to him!

This template is BEYOND perfect for any gift you need for any man in your life -- I'm lovin' it!

Next, I needed a matching masculine card to go along with the little gift set, so I printed off a sentiment sheet from the new Dad's Day to Relax stamp set and used this perfect golf themed sentiment.   I die cut a circle and them embossed it with tiny polka dots to resemble a golf ball, adhered a golf tee and a couple of ribbons and a tag to complete the design!

It's a perfect match to my Blue Collar gift set!

I just know he'll get a kick out of it all and display the gift set pieces on his desk to admire for the future after he enjoys using the contents!!

I'm completely smitten ... how about you??!!??
