Hopefully by the time this posts, I will be out of the dentist chair (only a cleaning this time ~ thank heavens) and on my way to school to be a helper for Trevor's class agricultural visit.  The kids have so much fun with this ~ I've helped with my other 3 kids previously and now this will be the last time I get to do this ~ it's kind of sad, my little guy is really growing up :( 

It is time for another InStyle Stamps "Over the Hump Blog Candy Giveaway".  Since Father's Day will be here soon enough, that is the theme we have this month.   
I used Richard for my card and kept the embellishments to a bare minimum.  I always seem to have a hard time using embellishments on cards for men because I don't want them to look to girlie.  I did use satin ribbon, but since it is an olive green, I thought I could get away with that one.  To make the sentiment a little more interesting, I added two circles of DP behind it and then just added a photo corner to the top right side.     

We'd love to see what you come up with for Dad, so go visit the InStyle Stamps blog for more information and to link your project when you've finished.
