Calendar Girls -- One for the Guys (Riley *Sneak Peek* 4!)

Happy Wednesday! 
It's the 28th of the month and that means the Calendar Girls
 are posting our monthly cards with a chosen theme ...
it's Day 4 of the
Riley and Company 
*Sneak Peeks* 
so my card is sharing double duty today :)


 Okay, our hostess this month is April and this was her challenge for us:

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!
Thanks, April!
 My card reflects a very special man in my life -- my brother ♥
He's currently stationed overseas in the Army and he is LOVING it!
He was born to be a solider and we could not be more proud of the tours of
duty he's had and the service to our country that he has given with pride.
But he is also a perpetual clown! 
There isn't anyone on this planet that loves to laugh as much as him,
play pranks and he's an absolute NUT JOB!
With that in mind, I thought of him with this new sentiment being released
"When I was a kid ..."
{Truthfully I haven't grown up much, either!:)}

                                 I used SC325 which looks like this:


And my card!

 and of course, my card inside :)
This was a great sketch to work with, April - thank you!
