You Tie Us Together Teal Tie -- Happy Father's Day

If you're here for the blog hop and giveaway, please click here!

This is a quick card I made for Father's Day this weekend. Tie was cut out and painted with teal acrylic paint. "You Tie Us Together" was laser printed. It'll be entered in 365 Cards Day # 105 All Tied Up, CRAFT #159 Father's Day, DYSU #76 Boys/Men, and Charisma Cardz #23 Male Cards.

Do you have any special plans for daddy? My dad lives in another borough of NYC, Brooklyn, so we are driving to see him and will go "yum cha." This is a Cantonese term that literally translates to drink tea, but you actually go to a Chinese restaurant and sit down for breakfast/brunch to, yes, drink tea and eat what we call "dim sum." Dim sum, translated as "touch heart," refers to the appetizer-type dishes that are served. Usually they push a cart and you pick out what you like. It's a very common thing to do for Chinese families and my generation of ABC (American born Chinese) now gets together with friends to go. My bf loves it even though he was only introduced to it around college. Wikipedia elaborates in a lot more detail if you're interested in learning more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dim_sum.

Have a lovely weekend as always! :)

  1. Hello Eleen! This card is so simple but great and I love the "story"! I am always waiting to learn new things about you! It shows what a sincere and good person you are-I hope you'll never be hurt as I live here with a new kind of behaviour that I don't like at all! People are so selfish and use you for their own purpose ! I don't even know how to react or to teach Dana what's the best way to deal with this kind of situations! She's a sensitive person,loving animals more than people ,I guess, as friendship is a thing you cannot describe anymore! DANA posted few photos from her trip and will be more! Thanks for "tying us together! All the best to you and Dmitri! hugs for a million times!
