Happy Father's Day!

Today I want to wish fathers everywhere a wonderful, relaxing day, especially my hubby and my son. My hubby and I are with my granddaughter in Missouri, to be together for a memorial service for his oldest brother, Joe Allen, who passed away last week. He gave up his "day" to be home with his mom and sisters and younger brother to honor the brother he lost. While we're here, we'll go visit Dad's grave site, clean it up and put new flowers there.
My son is working his butt off to prepare for his newest child, scheduled to arrive sometime in August. Besides his full time job, he is an Army Reservist, up for re-enlistment in a few short months.
Meanwhile, I am burning the midnight oil to get this digital card up on my blog so they can each see it, as I type in our hotel room, next to my poor Bella who ended up losing her lunch and dinner and is now sleeping it off. Hope it was just a bad mix of food and she's not getting sick!!
Meanwhile, my card uses a couple fabulous images from Sandy of Scribbles Designs, Carl's Pad and Firefly (Firefly was a freebie on her blog!). I used papers, the frame and the gorgeous bubbly baubles from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles. Sandy has a fun challenge with a theme of "Fins, Feathers & Frog Legs" (yum). Go check out her blog, where there are freebies to be snagged, inspiration to be shared and a challenge to enter!
Other Challenges I am Entering:
Digi Galore challenges - Father's Day
Moving Along with the Times - Inspired by a Song (Unforgettable by Nat King Cole)
