♥JustRite Challenge #074 - Vintage Masculine♥

♥For today's Simon Says Post, please scroll down!♥

Happy Hump Day! Today is the last day of school for my little Antonio! He is officially a BIG boy now! A 1st Grader! ;) He is so excited! Kindergarten is for little kids, you know!! So glad to have him home all day with me now. At least for a couple of weeks anyway! In July he is enrolled in a Summer Reading Program in the school and then he has a week of Summer Bible School. So then in August it will be complete play time, swimming, playing with friends, BBQ'ing and all the fun stuff kids do! Can't wait!


 And with the start of summer comes Father's Day. Yikes! It's this Sunday!! Good thing I made a card for the current JustRite Friday Challenge! It's called Vintage Masculine. I used a fantastic Background stamp by JustRite called Vintage Map Collage. I stamped it in several different browns and blues onto some cream colored cardstock.

 I also used another fun stamp set by JustRite called "You are the Best". Love the fun ribbons in this one! I then finished off the card with some teal ribbon, papers by Bazzill Basics called "Wayfarer" and some screw brads.

 I hope you all have a fabulous night or day, depending on where you are!! ;)

 Hugs...

What a fabulous Fathers Day card. I love the colours and design. My Mammy just loved it when we were off school too. Mind you, out of the 5 of us there is only one left at home and he's 11 but she just loves having him at home too. She was just born to be a Mammy, lol. Lee x
