Happy Father's Day

Hi folks, just had to prove to Jenny that I don't always make my cards the day before or on the day that it is needed!! This one is ready to go!! Life is still hectic and I am still extremely tired, hope the tablets kick in soon or I shall be asleep at my desk by 9am!! Anyway I really enjoyed making this card, didn't think I liked Teddy Bo but have changed my mind. This image is just perfect and my Father in Law will think this is highly amusing with DAD upside down as he wouldn't expect anything more from me!!! My own DAD passed away when I was 3 years old so I don't tend to "do" Fathers Day in a big way, just quietly. So I am going to enter this into a few challenges
