Happy Birthday Daddy

Today is my Dad's Birthday.  I was able to spend some time with him on Friday.  He attended a conference which was half way between our homes so I met my parents in the area and they brought my daughter too.  She doesn't have any classes on Fridays so she was spending the day with my Mother shopping while my Dad was attending the conference.  I joined the girls and then we all had dinner together.  When my Dad comes to visit me, I usually have several handy-man jobs that he helps us with so Mo's image was perfect for him since he usually goes with his tools.  My second card is using a stamp from Verve and a sentiment from the Halloween Club at TLC, Create.  My final card is using paper and a stamp from TLC, Create.
