Dear Father


Some days just don't follow the plans you have made, this is one of those days.{Are you sure its Tuesday?}  I only hit the snooze button once, trust me...that is pretty good for a multi-snoozer like me. I knew I had to get up and get the day started, I had a 9:00AM baby shower and a 12:00PM memorial service facing me.No more snooze button allowed! The morning went awry the moment I stepped into Chellas' room...she is an even bigger snooze function fan than I am! She did NOT get up.......

 She missed the bus......I was late for the pink elephants on parade shower......and late for the memorial service. yep.

On the plus side my homemade mac and cheese was the favorite at the memorial lunch, the shower was a pink masterpiece :) and I managed to pull together this card for todays SCS color challenge.

I used mojo Mondays sketch for this "could be fathers day" card...I could also use it as a birthday card dontcha' think? I like these colors together soft suede, certainly celery, and tempting turquoise. I really need a supply of "man cards" in stock. It seems they are the hardest to make. {at least for me}

I think any father would be well pleased to recieve this very creative card and if he's not, well then, he didn't deserve it in the first place.
