Reliable as Dad

My Dad did a lot of work on my house the past few years; however, since I went back to work he has not been around much.  He would come with my Uncle who is younger than my Dad and a family friend and both of them have had health issues so my Dad has been left doing his own work by himself so he doesn't have time to help me.  Which is understandable since he is almost 74 years old.  He answers all my questions though.
For my card, I sprayed Glimmer Mist on the paper and used a pre-colored tool box from Dee Dee's which went out of business over 3 years ago. The sentiment is from TLC, Create. I found some cork ribbon and tape measure ribbon which I thought was fitting for this card.

Sentiment:  TLC, Create - Reliable as Dad
Border Punch:  Fiskars
Ribbon:  Offray and Michael's
