For You Dad

Good morning my lovely crafty friends and welcome to the weekend :o)
It's my DH birthday today - just made him breakfast in bed and later this evening we are going out for an
 'all you can eat' Chinese meal with the family - it's really scrummy as they cook it all fresh and you choose what dishes you want - and as many as you like - perfect!!

So I thought I would share the card I made for Jack to give to his Dad today - I asked him to choose the image - either from my selection of stamps or from the LOTV pre-coloured Art Pads and this is the one he picked:

When Jack was little he and John used to play a made up game where one would say dog and the other would say doggy - they would say it over and over for ages - used to drive me mad really - but when I think about it now it brings a smile to my face :o)
 I think that might be why he picked this particular image!!!

Card Ingredients:
Ribbon from stash 
Memory Box: 'Cosmic Stars' and 'Simple Banner'
