I demand a recount!

     June is a really busy month for us around here.  Both my dad and I have a birthday this month and this year my uncle's birthday fell on Father's Day.  I whipped up this fun Gus card for him cause he adores humor cards.  I never know what kind of smart aleck card I'll get.  :-)  This is pretty CAS but he's a CAS kinda guy.  Hope it gives you a chuckle too.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Dream Valley Challenge--for that special guy
Stella Says Sketch--sketch
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days--Father's Day/masculine
Guylou's Inimitability--CAS with kraft
Charisma Cardz--male cards
Do You Stack Up--masculine
Crafting for All Seasons--for men

     Be blessed!

  • Stamp:  Bugaboo Stamps "Gus B-Day Recount"

  • Tools:  Nestabilites Classic Ovals, sewing machine
