Happy Birthday Dad!

I don't know anyone who likes to make cards that doesn't find it difficult to make a card for a man.  You don't want it to be boring, but it's so much easier to add a bow or a flower to a card.  So here is my card for my father-in-law.  He is such a special man.  You just can't find a better person than him.

I chose the tree from Gina K Design stamp set called Fanciful Fall.  I thought it was appropriate seeing that his confirmation verse, his father's and my husband's is John 15:5 "You are the vine and I am the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."  Inside the card I used a message from Gina K's Masculine Messages stamp set.  It says "Dad, you're such a blessing".  And it's so true.  We love you Dad!!
