Dear Old Dad

To all the dads out there - Happy Father's Day!

This is Norm (Art Impression Stamps) and he's going to be taking it easy and just relaxing on Father's Day.  I added the palm tree on this to kinda shade him from all those harmful sunshine rays - however, he looks a little like he's at the age where he could really care less! 



I'll enter this in the challenges at Art Impressions Stamps (Husband/Father), Cards for Men (Father's Day) and C.R.A.F.T. (Father's Day).

Very short post here - but did want to tell all the dads out there to have a great Father's Day and hope you have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by.........and remember to KEEP SMILING!
Lynn
