Hi Everyone!

It feels like I haven't posted anything for a long time now! My days are filled with work & I've been cherishing the time I have with my youngest in the evenings! Being divorced, means having to share my time with him this summer, it doesn't mean I have to like it though!!!

Anyway, on to my project. Today I wanted to share (see I like to share some things..lol) the card I made for my dad's Birthday! He's turns 84 today & I thought he would get a kick out this! I miss him sooo much, he's in WA & I'm in VA which is too far away!!! I think it turned out really cute, please let me know what you think. I, of course (since I'm still in the challenge mode) will be entering it in some challenges, which I will list below. I don't know about you all, but I really like challenges! Sometimes I'm not really sure where to go with a card & they help to inspire me!
