My #1 Dad

Here is the Father's Day card I have created for my Dad.  I personally think he is the best dad in the world.  But we all should think that of our fathers, right?  Hope so!  He is not a golfer or a fisherman, he is the ultimate Handy Man.  When I went through all my carts, I didn't have anything that I could use for tools.  I went to MyCutSearch.com to see what carts had tools and low and behold there is a cart called "Handy Man".  Of course it is no longer available unless you want to pay $100 for it on Amazon or Ebay.  SO BUMMED!!!  That cart would have been so perfect for me to create a card for my dad.  He is a builder/carpenter/jack-of-all trades and I love him for it!  Anyway, I ended up using this cut from Celebrate with Flourish, it will definitely work.  The patterned paper is from The Guy Stack from DCWV, all the tools and masculine colors - awesome!  I will be entering this card in Paper Playtime (use two or more ribbons/twine/cord), CardzTV (Father's Day), My Craft Spot (Dad), and even though this card isn't exactly the sketch from Mojo Monday, I did draw inspiration from this week's sketch to create it.  Thanks for visiting!
