Relaxing Dad

The challenge this week at Phindy's Friday challenge blog is to make a FATHER'S DAY card.  I think I will give this card to my Grandchildren to give to their Daddy.  He needs to relax after all the woodworking he has been doing.  When I took my Grandson home the other day he wanted to show me the toy box his Daddy made for the back yard toys.  It looks great and doubles as a bench.  The kids also have a large sandbox to play in so I think Daddy has become a hero.

You don't have to use a Phindy image but if you do you can enter it twice for more chances to win the wonderful prizes.  If you don't have any Phindy images, just head over to her store and pick up a few of her fabulous images.

We have friends visiting from England and today we are going into Toronto to take in the Picasso exhibit at the Art Gallery.  We will be travelling over the next week to Niagara Falls, Ottawa and Montreal to give them a taste of this part of Canada since it is their first time in this area.  We will arrive back in time for Father's Day and I think a nice relaxing day is on order for all of us.  Since I had to cook on Mother's Day, I am planning a BBQ for Father's Day and that would be my husband's job.  Sounds right to me :)
