Happy Father's Day!

I thought this card was appropriate for our two little guys (monkeys) to give to their Dad for Father's Day.



The stamp is one of the Changito Monkeys from Stampendous. The saying is one I created on the computer. I found a free font and downloaded it to use. The coloring is done with prismacolor pencils.

I've made three other cards this weekend but can't share them yet (top secret work in progress!)

There is a park near here called Children's Memorial Park. When my daughters died almost 11 years ago I had their names engraved on the wall at the park. I don't go visit often. But today I did. They have added new walls and a statue. As I read the names on the walls I noticed a few that would have two or three in a row with the same last name. I wondered if they were part of a set of multiples (or all of a set of multiples) like mine. It's 108 degrees here today so I didn't stay long but was feeling the need to visit. We cremated our daughters' remains so there is no grave to go visit. When I'm feeling that need I go to the park. Sometimes I wish we had something more personal to visit but I've never been willing to actually bury the ashes in a cemetary. I thought about burying the ashes with my folks but that's three hours away and I never make it up there. So...nope!

Anyways, hope everyone is staying cool whereever you are. And hope you are getting lots of stamping done!
