Happy Day My Darling Dad

Thought I would pop in and share the card and present I made for my Dad. By the time this schedules I will be with him, celebrating his special day, along with DH and his girls and now SIL and his son :0) Happy, happy Father's Day to you all.

Heidi Swapp 'No Limits' and Studio Calico 'Classic Calico' 6 x 6 papers and lots of Silhouette action!

my Dad's a gardener, so I thought this tin would come in handy....then an idea was born!

I made a seed packet

wrote instructions on the back using seed packet lingo

the 'seeds' spell out his present.
When the seeds are put into the right order they tell him that he and I are going out to Beth Chatto's garden for lunch, a stroll around the gardens and then on to their nursery where a particularly unusual plant he has been hankering after will be waiting for him to collect :0)

Hope all the men in your lives have a special day today.

Thanks for popping in,
