JustRite for Father’s Day

Today I used a new set from JustRite’s June release for a card for my Dad for Father’s Day.  I started out planning to use the new Nested Frames, but once the card took shape, I changed my mind — it’s a woman’s prerogative, you know!  I liked just the sentiment cut with the dies on […]
