Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Good Morning and Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there who are being neglected today cuz their wives are crafting, haha.  I asked my hubby what he wanted for dinner since it is his special day and he said he was going to grill- have at it!!   I just have to make a dessert-easy enough!

My card today is for a fun little challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The challenge is to make a step ladder card and they are much easier than they look.
I am also playing along with Paper Play and their challenge is to use something old. Well that was easy -I used scraps from my scrap drawer- red cardstock strips that I dotted with my cuttlebug, the dp which is from Cosmo Cricket, and the white applique for the icing.  I bought the applique last winter and today was only the 2nd time it's been used!
My cute little monkey image comes from Paper Addictions and you can get this little freebie here.  If you would like to play along with Tuesday Morning sketches Melissa has a link for instruction on the step ladder card.

See you tomorrow :)
