Just got back from a vacation where I got to spend a week with my dad and other family members at the beach.  Every time I get to spend time with my dad, I am reminded of how lucky I am that he is healthy and here.  My dad has had a tough 10 years of health problems.  He is one tough cookie! I am so thankful for the protection God has provided him.  I know my dad grows frustrated with these obstacles, but I am so thankful that he's never given up!

Some fun facts about my dad....

*He is a Cubs fan through thick and thin.  Even though they seem to struggle, he will always tune in to watch a game! 

*I have never seen my dad without his beard...and because of this beard he plays Santa Claus at the preschool my mom teaches at every year! Not many can say their dad is Santa, right? 

*My dad was one of my softball coaches in jr. high and high school.  One year, I was on a team named the PIP's.  PIP stood for, "pretty in pink." Dad wore his pink coaches shirt proudly that year! 

*My dad runs his own business from home alongside their three dogs Wrigley, Amos and Rookie.  
 This card is entered in Cricut Cardz Challenge #79 where they called for Father's Day cards using any cartridge.  I used the Beyond Birthday cartridge to cut out "DAD." On the cream colored cardstock are pinstripes using the Hero Arts stamp CG196 (Canvas Stripes) and "Family" using a Studio G stamp. The argyle paper is from Me and My Big Ideas.

 The card is also entered in 365 Cards Day 107.  The inspiration comes from a movie poster for the movie, "Green Lantern."

Happy early Father's Day to my dad, Terry, and my father in-law, Eldon, as well as to my grandfather in-law, Elmer!
