School's Almost Out

My 6 yr. old grandson didn't have school yesterday and came here for the day.  We were very busy.  He colored 2 monster truck pictures, which we then scanned.  With one we printed a transfer and made a shirt.


The other we made smaller and printed to make a Father's Day Card.  

We also made teacher cards for his 3 teachers (someone loves to use my Cuttlebug).

And in between we built and painted a wood monster truck.

He did watch a bit of TV; played some games on my Kindle; had breakfast, lunch and a few snacks; made himself a mailbox from the craft box for the truck and we corresponded several times; and complained that he was bored.

So for all you moms out there here is my card for today:

The inside simply reads, in very large bold print,   
The cute little possoms are some of Katie's digital critters available from Whimsy Stamps.

These are the challenges into which I am entering this card:
