Backyard Boss

     Hope you're all enjoying Father's Day.  Here's a little card I created for my Dad.  I even got him a real blower to match.  LOL
     The stamp is one of the newest  releases from Art Impressions called "Backyard Boss".  I stamped the matching sentiment on the inside and added my handwritten HFD.
