For my dad

I've been showing cards I've made for mom lately, thought I better bring out the one I made for dad's birthday as well.  I had such a blast making this one, giving him such a hard time about turning 84... In reality, he can still run circles around me and doesn't even look 70 - but of course, I had to poke a little fun at him with this one.
I got this image from Ron Leishman's great site - his images always make me giggle and he has such a great variety to chose from.  I colored it up with my Copics and I kept the card simple (I always seem to do that with "man" cards), letting the image and sentiment speak for themselves.  I believe I got this sentiment from Create with TLC (but I'm not sure).  I used some great papers from DCWV and some brads from my stash.  Didn't it turn out great?
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz Challenge #20 - No flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Father's Day / For the male
Make it Monday - #90 - Linky party
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - #13 - For the boys
Have an awesome day!
