BIRTHDAY BOY

My dad turned 84 today.  He still runs everyday and has many creative hobbies.  I planned on making this last night, but I slipped in the bathroom, leaving me with sore arm.  So I had to rush and make it in 20 minutes.  I love the sketch challenge at MY CRAFT SPOT  I used the DCWV Birthday pad.  The die for the tag is My Creative Time.  There is a note on the tag to go to lunch at his favorite restuarant.  I am also entering this into DL.
