Thanks for being my DAD

My Dad is a wonderful man, and I couldn't ask for a better Father.  We may not always agree on things, but he is always there for me.  He was a potato farmer, and he did graduate from college and believes that education is important. He is talented and very creative and would have been a wonderful engineer if he didn't feel compelled to take over the family business.  He takes an interest in my cards even though he gives me grief that it would be cheaper to buy them.  For his card, I got a tractor die and naturally had to make it green since that's the way I was raised.  I used an embossing background that looks like tire tracks.  The sentiment comes from a wonderful set at TLC.
