Thinking of Dad

      Lots of news in this post!  I've joined the DT at Paper Funday after playing in their challenges since Day 1!   The monthly challenge always starts on the first Wednesday of the month (11 p.m. on the first Tuesday night if you are in my time zone out here on the West Coast - USA) and our theme is always "Anything Goes" but there's always an Optional Twist.  This month we have two marvelous sponsors, Colour of Love and Jan's Digi Stamps, and our optional twist is "Sparkle/ Shine."

     I'm using an image from Jan's Digi Stamps and it can be found in the #1 Dad set.  If my dad was still living, this is the card I would have done just for him.  He was the dad who always had time for his family and was happiest when he could share time and hobbies with his kids.  Thanks, Dad, and I still miss you after all these years.

     Come play with us this month.  It's "Anything Goes" but you can use the "Sparkle/ Shine" twist if you so choose.  Hope to see you there.  NanaConnie
