Edwin with plane

Happy Father's day, and Happy Birthday to my lovely Hubby xxx
 The card I made for Darren's dad is in the post below, Mac bought a funny one for her Daddy.

My dad died 10 years ago, aged  75 . 
Five years earlier he had told me he was "ready to go" 
but said he wanted to wait until he saw me with a baby, 
then when Mackenzie was born he died the week after, 
I'm sure he did wait and I only have 1 photo of them together.

I have made this card for Darren's birthday, not sure if it's really suitable for a 47 year old LOL
But he loves plane & I thought this would remind him of his childhood.

I have used:
Magnolia ~ Edwin with Airplane
Raspberry Road ~ Glory Days
DooHickey ~ Star & Flag
Whimsey ~ Sentiment Stamps
Memory Box ~ Willow Dragonfly

Remember to pop back tomorrow, when I will start sharing my LOTV sneak peeks.
Thanks for looking

Stunning card Fleur, I think Darren will love it. I always say that inside every man there's still a little boy trying to get out ( and play with his aeroplane )

Hi Fleur

Your card is wonderful, I think men are never to old when it comes to anything with a transportation
theme, they are all young boys at heart.
