Father's Day Card

OK, I was waiting on the perfect sketch so I could use this stamp set for a father's day card and finally I saw this weeks sketch at Stampin Queen's Sketch Challenge and knew it was the one I had been waiting on.  This reminds me so much of my dad when I was growing up as a child.  He was always packing up that old truck with vegetable and fruits and taking around to all the older shut ins.  It was mostly vegetable though as I remember those long rows of beans, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, you name it he planted it and not only for us but for the whole community.  Now I cherish those days, but back then I would think, "why do we have to supply the whole community with a garden?  Can't someone else besides us do that?"  If you have ever picked beans on a scorching summer day you know what I mean.  But now I look back on that time and remember just how giving my dad really was and he taught us how to be giving also.  Thanks DAD for teaching us godly ways and how to be a servant.

Here is a side view!

As you can see I have not finished the inside of this card, as I am waiting for my computer to be fixed so I can do a bible verse with my digital studio.  Hope it is done before father's day.
