Well, Father's Day is fast approaching and the pressure was on to create a Father's Day card worthy of my Dad! The problem was that I don't do well without my pink, lace, bling and foofy style! I have to say though that I did compromise on this card. I still have my girly image and a ribbon at the top yet I think it can pass for a Father's Day Card.
Any of you who are loyal Glee fans will recognize the sentiment on my card immediately! My daughters are die hard Glee fans and when I heard this song last night on the season finale, inspiration hit! The 1967 hit song and movie "To Sir With Love" featured a song dedicated to a great teacher but I knew that I could easily dedicate it to my Dad. The singer was a gal named Lulu and I just love the line
"How do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?"
It's just such a fitting line for my Dad! I can't possibly thank him enough for all he's done and continues to do for me everyday! He's the babysitter, bug killer, a/c filter changer, plumber and oh so much more! He's just there when I need him... NO QUESTIONS ASKED! I'm a very lucky "little girl" (at heart) to have such a wonderful father. So on Father's Day and always, I Love You DAD!!! Thank you for all you do!
The Shabby Tea Room is of course holding a challenge this week honoring fathers so I am submitting this card tonight over there with all of the other wonderful cards. The image on the front of the card is a cute little gal named Meeshelle from the Polkadoodle's stamp set. She is just soooo cute, I thought she brought that sentiment home well!
Goodnight everyone and sweet dreams!
