"I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

May Calendar Girls

Our May Calendar Girls challenge from April was as follows:

"Well, it is May and I always like to honor my father this month.
So, to celebrate him (and fathers every where) let us make a masculine celebratory card with any SCS sketch that ends in 25 (the year he was born).
Please let us know which sketch you used and a memory of a special man in your life!"

I used sketch 125 and I also used my new Paper Pumpkin kit from SU!  I made a card that I will use for one of my two sons at some point.  They are both incredible guys!!

Here's my masculine card:
