Happy Father's Day!

We've made it through another week of running here and there and everywhere!! lol Even with our sons gone this week, it seems like we still had plenty to do. The major "excitement" was on Wednesday night of this past week - we spent about an hour in our basement while the wind blew, the rain came pouring down and the tornado sirens sounded. Thankfully, the most severe weather missed us. However, it did not miss the Little Sioux Boy Scout camp site. Our prayers go out to all of the people affected by the tornado that swept through the camp site killing four boys and injuring dozens of other Boy Scouts. Both of our boys are Boy Scouts now and our middle son was actually at a different week-long Boy Scout camp. We were glad he was safe and, boy, did I give him a big hug when we went out for Parent Night.

For Father's Day today, we treated my DH to a nice breakfast after Church. I hope he enjoyed it, because not often am I going to spring $60 for breakfast!! I knew I should have never let our middle son pick where we went!! lol I guess I've instilled good taste in him, but sheesh!!! After that we came home so Dad could open his gifts. Yes, he got the much made fun of Father's Day gift ---- ties and dress shirts! But honestly, it's what he likes now that he's wearing suits to work most of the time.

This past week I've been spending quite a bit of time in the craft room working on a project that middle son and I wanted to get done. We've made 8x8 scrapbook albums for our boys' friends whose dad passed away. The two boys are the same ages as our boys and then they also have a sister who is going to be in the 3rd grade. The albums were pretty simple - mostly we just wanted to give them something that they could have to put special pictures in and a place to write down some memories. I hope they like them! I did find some time to get some cards done too. My mom has reminded me that I still owe her some cards from the trip we took this past March. We bartered cards for her paying my share of our hotel bill when we went to new York City. Not a bad deal, in my opinion!

The card I uploaded is pretty simple. Again, that's the way I like doing them. Sure - I like looking at all the cards out there on people's blogs that are all embellished up, but I just don't seem to have the time for that. Maybe one of these days I will get out my mini-sewing machine and see what I can do with that!! All the stamps and paper from this card are SU! I made it for a swap at a SU! Demo event that my upline sponsored.

Well, our baseball tournament was rained out for this afternoon - so I'm going to get busy getting some household chores done around here. DH and our middle son are probably going to down to the NCAA College World Series and hang out there for a while later. Sounds likes a good end to our nice Father's Day!

Have a great week!

Great color combination. Simple designing is always the best. Keep the creative juices going...at least until you get the balance of my cards completed . :)
