My Dad's a Sweetie

Time for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz and we are giving you the chance to get ahead for father's day here in the UK.  Now I know that I'm OK posting my father's day card 'cause I'm pretty sure that my dad wouldn't know a blog if it jumped up and gave him a hair cut!  He's not great with the technology stuff.  He's got a mobile phone but I can't text him 'cause he wouldn't know what to do with a text.  Technology may not be his thing but he's pretty awesome in other ways.  I won't be indiscreet and tell you his actual age but you ask the grand kids or great grand kids and I reckon they will say he's about 5.  He's constantly crawling around the floor with them or playing silly games.  He sneaks around behind the furniture and jumps out at them and they all adore him (me and my sister's think he's a sweetie too).  And talking of sweeties that's the other thing he can be relied on.  He's a constant source of sweets for the kids. He also has his own particular favourites and, as his birthday and father's day are in the same week, I can guarantee he will be inundated with Liquorice Allsorts and Chocolate Limes.  So that's what I've put on his card.  It's my first attempt at colouring on craft.  I'm not sure if alcohol markers really do the trick but I think it made it look a little vintage...just like my dad.

The stamp is a freebie from Dr Digi's House of Stamps.  I think it's perfect for my dad and he can keep these sweets to himself and not have to share.

I hope you'll join us for the challenge.

Thanks for reading.
