Monochromatic Monogram Cards + Happy Father's Day

Let's celebrate Dad today!  Dennis and I met my parents for lunch .  It's kind of funny, but since my daughter has grown up, we really don't go all out on holidays (or birthdays) like we used to.  

But it was fun to get together at a local pizza place and no one had to wash dishes!

I used a vintage valentine to make this card.  My friend, Souna, (who is a first grade teacher) had me change the wording on this, so that she could use it as a thank you card to give to parents at the end of the year who had volunteered in the classroom. 

I rather like these monochromatic monogram notecards. 

I think they work great for Dad and I'm thinking with a curvier alphabet, they would be great for me, too!
