As you can see, I'm still on a spring kick. I created this card specifically for Copic Color Challenge 60. The word, however, was donated by my husband. When we were dating, my daughter bought her first place; a mobile home in a local mobile home park. It was badly in need of repair which he volunteered to do because that's the kind of guy he is. My youngest grandson was two or three at the time and he followed Carl everywhere he went, stealing tools as often as he could get his hands on them. More than once I heard Carl running down the hallway chasing a laughing Cody who had Carl's hammer. While they worked, each time Carl would finish a job, he would stand, brush his hands together, and announce to the world,"TADAH". Since Cody was so small, one of the jobs he did was put a baby gate at the entrance to the kitchen. This served as a deterrent for a while but one day we heard a huge crash and as we ran into the living room, we could see Cody laying in the kitchen. He had obviously climbed the gate and fallen off of it onto the floor. Before we could get to him, he stood up, brushed his hands together and announced in a loud voice, "TADAH". We were in stitches while we were removing the baby gate. Tadah is still a special word in our house. It tells the world we have accomplished something to be proud of.
