Happy Father's Day

Ok, I'm gonna admit it, right here, right now. I totally and completely, 100% blanked. June is just my 'what the heck?' month. What's my least favorite card to make? That's right, cards for guys. And what's in June? Oh, you have no idea. Yes, Father's Day is in June, but so are Shawn's dad's and 2 brothers' birthdays. (yikes! don't even say anything about the grammar/sentence structure/use of apostrophes in that sentence cuz you know what i was trying to say! and if, by some miracle, it's right - nevermind) And all those birthdays are a week apart. One is today, and then Father's Day is tomorrow. My mind is just bent over all this. And I think I did start out with the idea that they were all gonna get the same card. But for some reason it didn't happen that way. I'm not sure where I went wrong. I think I thought I could improve on the first one and then something, something...I have no idea. So, when it came to Father's Day, this was all I had left. Don't get me wrong. I like this card. I like it more than the birthday cards these poor guys got. And then I justified it by thinking, do guys really care? Naaahhh. Aren't they just amazed that someone remembered them? I say yes. And simple/classic is way more my style than the flannel sleeping bag inspired cards they got for their birthdays. *shudder* Sorry, guys. And Happy Father's Day!

I think it's perfect.
Don't they make stamps of women in bikinis? Or just of boobs? I'll see what I can find to add to your "guy-card" collection.

Rachel, girl, you are so funny! I'm not sure if Mint can pull off a simple, classic boob card, but if anyone can, she can. Hey, daughter of mine, this Father's Day card is terrific! Love the way you composed the sentiment. And I think you got the apostrophes right. Looks good to me. So ... flannel sleeping bag cards? Gotta see those. Sounds almost as odd as boob cards, but I'm sure they are wonderful. And yes, I'm also sure the guys will be thrilled you remembered them. Happy Father's Day to all you dads.
