Father’s Day Card #1, Woodgrain!

Hello Everyone!

Happy June 1st!

This is the FIRST CARD in a series

  of Father’s Day Cards…featuring

the True Gentleman Suite

from the, now retired, Occasions Catalog!

Father’s Day is June 17th!

I have 3 Brother’s, and 3 Brother-in-laws…also, nephews and nephews-in-law…

I send Cards out to them all.

My Dad, passed away this year and although it’s fresh, my peace is

knowing where he is, with the Lord, and my Mom again!

I can only imagine…


Today’s Card and the rest of the cards in the series, are not for any Challenges!

Here is Today’s Card!

I liked this True Gentleman Suite from the Occasions Catalog!

My only feeling, is that too bad it was discontinued, before Father’s Day.

If you have this DSP…go ahead and CASE (Copy And Share Everything)!

Use the layout as a guide and use what you have on hand!
