Boys Become Men

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you had a great and relaxing holiday weekend. I want to take a quick moment to thank all of our active and retired military for their service.
We spent the week-end in Ruther Glen, Virginia visiting our friends that just moved there. It  was an easy drive from Pittsburgh and we didn't have a lot of road traffic. That was a real plus.
Elaine made us feel so welcome with all the little feminine touches. It was such a quick visit and I am already looking forward to the next time we go.
Now onto my card for today. I am making Father's Day cards and this one uses the Waltzingmouse set "man of the hour". I stamped the sentiment and used a Spellbinders oval die to cut it out.
The layout is from the Splitcoaststampers Wednesday sketch #437 I stamped and cut it out with the Spellbinders oval die.

I used a bold color palette with cherry cobbler, midnight muse and daffodil delight. The designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "parker's patterns" collection. This is a great collection of masculine papers. I used the Stampin-Up embossing folder "stripes" on my daffodil delight panel.

Since this is a masculine card, I added some pennant flags cut from the Verve pennant trim die. And that completes this card.
Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
