Dad's birthday

Hello all
Just a quick post today to share a card I made at the weekend for my Dad's birthday. I was really stumped for him and couldn't think what to do for him this year and then I came upon this image that I won in a challenge (but my AOL email is playing up big time at the moment so I can't confirm where it's from!!) The image reminded me of Dad when he's snoozing in the garden!
I coloured him with my Promarkers and layered him with papers from a pack I got recently at the Pound shop-I bought all three pads which are such good quality.
I die cut the Dad wording with an Xcut die, added a computer generated sentiment and a couple of card candi and that's it-CAS -I hope he likes it.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations #253-spring into summer
The Paper Girls #105- the great outdoors
Melonheadz -masculine
Love to Scrap #79-it's a boy thing
Crafty Boots -masculine
Ooh la la creations #206-boys
Tuesday Throwdown #279-mans world
Try it on Tuesday-all about him
Craftin Desert Divas-masculine

Well thank you so much for visiting me today and for any comments you may wish to leave which I really love reading.
Not far to the weekend!!
