Happy Birthday Dad!

Today was my dad's birthday, this is the card that he will get. Have I mentioned I am horrible about sending cards?? I made this at least a couple weeks ago, but somehow it still didn't manage to make it into the mail on time! GEESH! I am hopeless. Anyway - my dad is an avid gardener. I grew up complaining about having to pull weeds in his huge vegetable garden to earn my allowance - but now as an adult I *love* gardening! Isn't it funny how that works? I hear my dad's gardens are pretty amazing this summer - in recent years he's expanded beyond veggies and now has some beautiful flower beds as well. As a matter of fact, he's coming down to visit in a few weeks (joining my mom for her final few days here and then staying on a week beyond her departure) - and he debated coming because he was worried about his gardens - would they get watered? Would anyone pick the abundant vegetables or deadhead the flowers?? My mom gave him a pretty hard time about actually considering staying home with his plants instead of visiting his grandbabies! Hopefully his gardens will survive a week without him. He's up in Michigan - it's sooooo much easier to have a nice garden up there than it is here in Texas! I am jealous whenever I go back there and see all the things he grows!! So anyway - I thought this cute little Hambo carrot image and sentiment would make a perfect card for my dad! And could I resist adding polka dots? Of course not! Thanks for stopping by - come back again tomorrow for the latest From Courtney's Closet!! That is, assuming I locate my mojo and am able to stamp something tomorrow morning! Fingers are crossed! (hmm maybe that's why I'm having trouble stamping??) (oh I crack myself up!) ;-)

  3. Love the carrots card!! Enjoyed reading about your dad's garden. Brought back memories of when I was kid growing up in Canada, we had a HUGE garden too and I HATED pulling weeds too!! Now I love to garden (even though I don't have one) and love flowers and plants. Funny how that is eh!

  5. I absolutely adore your card, Libby!! That Hambo sentiment is one of my very favourites and I love how you used it.
    My dad can't go anywhere in summer, either, because of his garden.

  10. This is super cute, Libby! I love the orange dot background and it sounds perfect for your dad. I know he'll appreciate the significance. I didn't like all the chores my mom made me do when I was growing up, especially having to clean my room before I went out with friends. Now I appreciate how she raised me. My son told me the same thing after he was grown. Yes, funny how that works.
