For My Dad!

Hi All, Just a quick post tonight.  Hubby and I escaped last week to the beach in Maine and are just getting back.  It was great to get away and to get home despite the fact that we hit the road again tomorrow for the weekend.  Jim and I are heading to Yarmouth for my Dad's birthday, and of course seeing that we have been away, I had to make him a card tonight.  I asked him before we went away what he wanted for his birthday (what do you buy the man that has everything?????)...all he wanted was one of my handmade cards.  I thought that was very sweet but provided me with no help with a gift idea.  The card is a simple 5x5 card.  I used the Graphic 45 Proper Gentleman collection.  I used some of the paper and one of the die cut tags.  The black bling is from Recollections and the letters (D-A-D) are wooden letters from Michael's in the raw wood section.  I made the lollipop flower with some material that I got at a second hand store.  The stick pin was made with some beads from my stash.  I used a scrap of black lace with black satin ribbon over top of it. I hope he likes it!
Thanks for peeking in!
