Daddy has my Heart

Well hello all, hope you are enjoying the summer so far.  It has been unbelievable hot this year in Arizona.  Our monsoon rain storms have been building over the mountains over the last few days so that means we should have some storms soon.  It cools us down however it does make us humid.

One of the reasons I have not been posting too much we had our Granddaughter-in-law and 2 year old great-granddaughter staying with us while Miss Emma's daddy was deployed on a submarine.  As you an imagine it is hard to get much done with a very active 2 year old running around.
One of my other granddaughters saw this somewhere so I told her instead of buying it I would make one for Emma to wear when she saw her Daddy.
This was my first project using iron-on vinyl and I loved it!  I think I have a new addiction, Miss Emma may get many new shirts.  LOL
It is hard to see in the picture but the anchor and swirls on the heart are silver glitter vinyl. 
I used Silhouette Design Studio to set up and cut the file.  I played around with different fonts till I got ones that I was happy with.
I tried to get a picture of Miss Emma wearing it but she would not stand still and kept turning away from the camera.   The poor child has had a camera in her first since the minute she was born so now that she is a bit older she is now very cooperative.
Well now they have moved back to Maine to be together as a family, so it sure is lonely and quiet around here. :(, we miss them terribly but I know her Daddy is enjoying her.

Thank you for stopping by today and hope you all have a very Happy 4th of July, be safe and Gold Bless the USA.
