Today At Paper Cutz Challenge

This week at Paper Cutz Challenge it is to make a fathers day card. I used a cute image I had from Squigglefly. We have 3 kids so this made me think of my husband and our kids. He is such a great Dad. I have some health issues and he makes sure our kids get to do everything that is possible, he helps out at the events, he really shows them he wants to be with them. Our oldest is not his biological father but she has never gone with out. He was always there for her, and still is. I think my husband is the best Dad on earth.
I know you all are about sick of hearing about my Dad but this is a shout out in his memory. Fun memory- when I was little we were at the Milwaukee County Zoo, I was sitting on my Dads shoulders and we were in the monkey building. Well there was a gorilla named Samson, he was huge. Well he didn't like his photo taken with a flash ( really can you blame him) So some idiot did just that. Well he got so mad he pound on the glass, now really those of you who have never heard this are probably going... and... well this was so loud and hard they had to replace it. This scared me so much. But my Dad never let me be afraid. The next time we went to the zoo we went in there again and he made me go up to the glass, holding my hand, and I saw that he wasn't bad or mean. Just like during Thunder Storms and sitting on the porch watching them,( thanks Dad, I love them). He rocked!! And so does my Chris with his kids, They will have so many memories of him when they get older. Im glad, June is a month that we get to show the men in our life how much they mean to us.
Go over to Paper Cutz Challenge and see the other ideas for letting the man in your life know he is important.

Fantastic card, Helen! I love how you colored the image and neat embellies!

Okay, where do I start? I truly truly have been a busy girl. This is a wreath I made and placed on my parents grave.
