Hi everyone!  The insert for June celebrates Father’s Day, Go Fly A Kite Day, Fishing Day, Flag Day, Graduations, and just a celebration of our men.   This insert introduces the new in-colors, using Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, along with Early Expresso, Marina Mist and Very Vanilla with our new designer paper and I just love those new buttons! I used another digital download and also used a very old Stampin’ Up! fishing stamp set that I just could not part with – do you have any of those??  I love how this one turned out – it has a feeling of action and movement with the fishing scene.

Here is the June insert everyone made:

Here is my personal family insert, celebrating both my husband’s B-day an our granddaughter Savannah’s 10th B-day – both in June!

Here are some close-ups of some of the squares:

Then, Carol commented on how the colors in the graduation card could be changed to reflect other school colors, and what a great idea that was! My husband’s niece is graduating from high school and we just got her graduation invitation and her school colors are green and white, so this is what I came up with for her graduation card using green! Thanks Carol!

And lastly, here is a card that you can change the greeting on it to use it as a “Thinking of You” or a “Sympathy” card as well – just change the greeting (even an upcoming retirement card…. and Gary – you lucky guy, you know who you are!)

Sorry for the shadow – but then I thought… hmmm – wonder what it would look like in blue, so I cased my case! LOL!
