Well, after 17 years of marriage, my husband finally decided he would trust me enough to cut his hair! It's a simple cut, a buzz thingy, not a high and tight, but simple. It's skin to the almost the top and a patch of hair that barely sticks up on the top. How difficult could that be? The price of haircuts keep going up and I thought it was ridiculous to pay $10 every two weeks for something I could do at home! OH MY WORD! What was I thinking??? What took the hairdresser 5 minutes, took me over an hour. It's not so simple at all. There's the setting you have to do at 1 all the way around the head and then change the setting to 2 on the top and then skin up to the 1 and then fade the skin to the 1 and then fade the 1 to the 2 and then angle the fade and........AHHHHH!
By the first half hour I had him looking the rapper MC Hammer, just needed to put him in some parachute pants and he was ready to shoot a video. At this point I really began to give more credit to the hairdresser who did this for a living, but by the last half hour, I was getting the hang of it and was pretty sure I could send him out into public looking fairly respectable.
In the end, he was happy and thankful that I didn't completely botch is head up and I was thankful that he had enough faith in me to try!
So, after that I needed some "down time" to relax and thought this card would be perfect for a give thanks or a funny masculine birthday card...what's your thoughts?
Would you like to make a Thankful card? After all Thanksgiving is just around the corner. If you do, Dutch Dare is hosting that very challenge. We'd love to see what you are thankful for or to (I'm thankful to hairdressers all around the world). It could even be just a "thank you" card.
I'd also like to thank Robyn's Fetish for this wonderful image, My First Haircut. Pretty sure this isn't the intention of the image; BUT..I think it totally works. Secondly, I'd like to thank Tracy for the much needed mojo and allowing me to "case" her card layout here. Lastly, I would love to give thanks to all of you who stop in so often to see what my weird and quirky brain has come up with this time. You all are so very much appreciated.
