Happy Father's day bro!

I got my package out this morning...it's been a crazy one already!  I whipped up another card for my brother Mark for Father's Day.  He's a single father makin' life work with tough situations.  I am so proud of the way he has grown as a man and as a father these last 4 years.  He has really honored his wife's memory.  Happy Father's Day bro - you are AMAZING!!!

Special Father
This card is based on the Paper Crafts Connection Sketch #4 , Stampin' Royalty Challenge #24, Off the Wall Crafting # 11, and for the CAS-tastic Challenge 008 Father's Day Cards.  BOY that's a lot of challenges...I may as well throw in another one...Pile It On Summer Showers ...it's not showers, but the big fluffly blue clouds with a dark sky remind me of a pending rain shower.
