Birthday Card - Dad

Last week my dad celebrated his birthday. Unfortunately I didn't organise myself well enough and make his card in time. On the weekend I spent time in the craft room and decided to make his card. I had an idea in mind, especially the image I wanted to use.  I think the card came together really well. Tonight my dad rang to say he had received the card and that he really liked it.  My dad has a great sense of humour, so I knew he would appreciate the saying that goes with the image.  Here is the card I made.
