Happy Birthday, Dad!

My Daddy, My Hero, My Friend

Sorry that we can't be with you today - we miss you and are thinking of you!  We'll see you in just a few weeks!!

So, Dad challenged me (Yes, he gave me a card challenge!) to make a birthday card for him this year, that is better than the one I made him last year... hmmm.. you know, I've learned a lot in the past year and I've got my awesome Copics now... but I dunno, I still think that last years card was pretty darn awesome and it's going to be a hard one to beat!  Sooo.. let me know what you think - here's Dad's birthday card circa 2009:
And now onto this years card...
My Dad loves his truck and he loved the truck he had before that and he loved the truck he had before that... you get the idea, right?  I thought about making the truck gray, like Dad's Titan... but a blue truck just looked cooler on the card!

Hope this card makes you smile, Dad!!
