June is a busy month in our family with two birthdays, and anniversary, and Father's Day. I've been busy working on cards, especially since we'll be gone for a week right around the time I would ordinarily sit down to make most of these cards.

For this card, I used Dawn's Raspberry Suite #4 color combo b/c it really gives the masculine feel I was going for. I realize that may seem a little surprising, but I think (hope?) you'll see what I mean. I also used Jen del Muro's SFYTT sketch from the end of April to build the layout. The stamps are some of my favorite critter sets: Wise Owl from Papertrey Ink.

You maybe should block comments from this blog, too.

You'll notice that Derek's b'day card from me fits the color challenge, too. That's funny.
