Very Quick Father's Day Card

Hello Friends,

Yesterday was so busy and when I realized that I had let the week get away from me without getting or making a Father's Day card for my Dad, I jumped into action and threw this very plain and simple card together in about 10 - 15 mins. as my parents were on their way to my house.  I am almost embarrassed to post it, it is so plain ... but my Dad loved it and I couldn't resist posting such a cute picture of him beaming with joy!  He has always had an interest in old planes and now flies radio control airplanes as a hobby.  Of course, in hindsight I think of all the things I could have done to enhance it, but Dad is not a bells and whistles person.  But on my next ones I will use the masculine papers I have and put a little more time in it.  I'm sure all of you could come up with WAY more creative ideas!
