A Card before a Crazy Week!

I had a chance late last night to whip up a card for my father in law's birthday on Thursday. Actually, I didn't really have a chance, so I made one - late. I had a great, busy weekend volunteering for the Underwear Affair on Saturday afternoon after a whole bunch of errands in the morning (including getting my cell back and returning the horrendous thing they loaned me while mine was away. Note to self - I will never own a soft keyboard phone!)

Sunday I finally slept in for the first time in about a month, got some yardwork done and a 34km bike ride with the girls. I've now gotten myself involved with a 60K ride on July 3rd (two days after a 15K walk/jog for Canada Day) and a 100K ride on July 25th.  Really have to work on saying "No!" =)

This week is my last week of bootcamp for this session, a horse jumping lesson, a 5K walk, and ends with my Financial Accounting final exam (thank goodness!!).

Anyways, this card used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch 74 and I tried to use manly colors - black, white, grey & olive. I used my favorite birthday stamp from Verve for the sentiment and kept it clean & simple. MrP liked it, so I hope his Pa does, too!

Have a wonderful Monday! I'm participating in the TE Blast from the Past Blog Hop tomorrow - hope you can check 'em out!

Actually good on you for getting involved in so many wonderful causes. You must be one lean, mean athletic machine at this pace - enough to take Jillian from The Biggest Loser on I'm sure ;D
