Ah, Sunday afternoon. What words describe it best? Rest, relaxing, family, reading, crafting.  What words do you use to describe Sunday afternoon? Although I am retired, I still LOVE my Sunday afternoons. As a child, nothing was open on Sunday. You went to church, visited family and played with friends.  There was a “Blue Law” that kept all stores closed.  I know I am dating myself, but I just cannot get over how much our lives have changed, particularly on Sunday. Sometimes, it is hard to remember that nothing was open on Sunday…..absolutely nothing! And there was nothing on TV for kids, at least no cartoons, so we really had to be innovative to come up with things to do. I remember going to my grandparents’ houses on Sunday and playing with cousins, or with my brother.  Wow, so long ago!!

Today’s cards are for the Operation Write Home* Stars and Stamps blog challenge Midweek Throw Down – Father’s Day.  LOL I was just looking at the submissions for the challenge and realize I am going overboard. Please forgive me for posting so many, I just want to make sure I get all of my cards made in time for the Muscle Card challenge and Sandy opened the door with this Father’s Day challenge!

The papers are digital from Doodle Pantry’s Vintage Auto Digital Paper Pack and the car is from the Vintage Auto Color Plus pack. The brown paper is Craftwell.
