I had to work with something PINK after all the Male Cards from the Series!!!

All kidding aside, I did enjoy making the Father’s Day Cards for all my Brothers, Brothers-in-law, and Nephews. I also made one for the Father my BFF…I call him Dad#2.

When I was a Senior in High School, our Family experienced a Fire. We only lost material things…we were all split up amongst relatives and friends. I lived with my BFF and her Family from mid-March till the day after we graduated in about mid-June. My BFF’s Parents became my second Parents during that time. We still chat to this day!

I hope this finds you all well…I leave tomorrow to go up to New England for my Dad’s Service and the Internment of both my Parents now, also my Grandmother (Dad’s Mom). Gramma passed away quite a few years back and we decided to do this all at the same time, since we are all together for Mom and Dad, why not take care of Gramma too.

I have cards in line automatically ready to be posted, while I am gone.

Until the next Post…Many Blessings to you ALL!

Let me know what you think!
