Father's Day Card

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday!  I have my card that I will be sending to my dad for Father's Day.  I'm a little sad because my fiance and I have decided not to travel down to Delaware for Father's Day weekend.  Not an easy decision but it realistically is not an option at the moment.

My dad loves Father's Day...he says it's the best holiday of the year.  The image that I used spoke to me in so many ways and reminded me of my dad.  A) he's Italian, B) he makes the best sauce.  The recipe has been handed down for many years now.  I was honored when it was finally passed down to me.  And finally C), he owns a catering company where he is known for his sauce.  I think there was maybe two times where we served non sauce food.  My favorite family time that I miss at the moment is Spaghetti Sundays.  Sometimes it would be just my dad and my brothers and sisters and sometimes it would be my entire family on my dad's side.

This is probably the most ordinary card I have ever created.  I hate it because there's nothing to it....which means it's perfect for my dad lol.  But truth be told....once I found this image, I didn't want a "glamorous" card and wanted to keep it very simple.  I adore how it turned out.
