It's finally summer weather here in New England!!! And time for another Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop!!! 
We are focusing on the guys this month! Anything masculine! I decided to go with a Father's Day card! I know it's a bit early for Father's Day, but I figured I'd get that done before I was up the night before creating it! lol Last-Minute-Lucy! That's me!

So here's mine:

The colors are somejwhat non-traditional! That's ok, so is my husband! lol  But I really wanted to feature some of the new items I have from the brand new Annual Catalog that went live TODAY!!!! Such exciting news! Already placed a second order!!! I hope this card wins the hubby's affection because once he sees the bill...!!! lol

So, what's new here? A couple of things.  First, theres the absolutely gorgeous Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP!  I.  Love.  This.  Paper!!!! The colors are so bold & bright! And as you can see, work for her or for him! 

Second new item is the Thoughtful Banners stamp set with the 
Duet Banners Punch. Comes in a bundle-which means SAVINGS!!!  I have a feeling this may be my new go-to set! There are so many different words in the stamp set! It's apropos for just about any occasion! And the punch makes it look so much fancier! I like to double it up like I did here. Totally not necessary though. Just the single would've been awesome!

"Oldie-but-goodies" here include the Brick Wall Embossing Folder, a Bow Paper Clip Embellishment, and the Basic Pearl Jewels.  The design is old-school! It just came to mind! lol Thought it was cute,

So hope you enjoyed this month's card! It's "dude-ish"!!! Now hop on over to Terri's  over at territerbear's stamp & scrap spot & see what great design she has for you! Then keep hopping until you get back to where you started! Everyone loves it when you leave a little note! It not only makes us feel good, but helps us decide as demonstrators what you would like to see from us!!!! Just click on Terri's name above or the icon below! Either way, you'll get there!!!

Happy Stampin'!
