Sentimental Sundays

Here is my weekly post for Sentimental Sundays. This week our challenge theme is For a Special Man or Father's Day. I went with a birthday card for a special guy. Don't forget to add your sentiment!

And Bugaboo is the sponsor. They very graciously allowed us to pick an image. I selected this super Gus Tidbits - At My Age image, he is a hoot and I love the matching sentiment. 

Make sure and pop over to the Sentimental Sundays blog and check out all the fabulous creations from the DT. And during the summer we are having some bonus challenges, if you play along with the theme and add the bonus option, you can enter twice. This week's bonus is a sketch, created by our very own Sentimental Sundays teamie Nicole. Such a fun sketch to play with, hope you will give it a try.

The card is so funny and so real (just looking at my neighbours which are nearly naked in the garden)...
Maybe I can now look at them and smile while thinking of your card...
