Missing You Dad!!!

Hello Everyone,

I am back with another card for you today. I created this card for two reasons, First for the CAS challenge on SCS Second and most importantly I made this for my dad. I lost my dad 4 months ago and today is his birthday. I miss my dad terribly and all weekend working up to this day has been very hard. I think of the jokes he used to tell (he was a master joke teller) and how some were funny and some not so funny. Even if the joke was hilarious we tried not to laugh at them because that only encouraged him,. What made my dad even more funny is that he never smiled, he always had this serious look on his face. Growing up it scared the boys we would bring home to meet mom and dad. People tell me that it will get easier as time goes by, but I don't think it ever will. I am grateful for the time that I had with my dad. I am grateful that he was able to walk me down the aisle when I got married. I am grateful that my girls got to meet and know my dad although they are really young they will never forget who he was, I will make sure of that. I will remember my dad the most when it comes time to teach my kids to drive since that was my dad's favorite story to tell. When he was teaching me to drive I had no clue what I was doing and I was driving so bad that I was pulled over by the police. My dad jumped out of the car and gave the police officer a hug for saving him. So to my dad, the first man in my life, you will always be in my heart and I will miss you every day of my life.

For my card I made using Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. "Love Remains" stamp set. I used the same technique I showed you in my first post today. The challenge for the SCS CAS challenge was to use Raspberry and White. I finished my card with gold ribbon and raspberry brads. I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks for stopping and commenting. I hope to see you again soon. Have a blessed day.
