Congrats, Dad!

Hi there! Happy Veterans Day and a BIG THANK YOU to our military and their families (those currently serving and those who have served in the past)! We appreciate you and all of your sacrifices!!

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the most recent sketch over at Card Positioning Systems! Here's the sketch:

And since I decided to create a masculine card, I'm also entering this into the Young Crafters Unite challenge!

Here's my take on both of these challenges:

After many MANY years in the workforce, holding down at least one job full of LONG HOURS and HARD WORK and sometimes TWO JOBS, my Dad has officially RETIRED!!! WOOHOOO!!! So, this card is for him and will be included in a special little package that Tony and I have assembled for him! (Hopefully he's not reading this right now...HA!) My mom and dad plan to hook up the RV to the pickup and travel all around the U.S.! I am SOOOO excited for them as they embark on this next phase of life!

WAY TO GO, Dad!!! We're SO PROUD of you!!! (Oh...and if you happen to read this post before your package arrives, just pretend you didn't already see the card, okay?!?! LOVE YOU!!!)
