MPS Father's Day Challenge & Expressions Giveaway!

Over at My Pink Stamper, there is a challenge going on, with a give-a-away for a Cricut Expressions! I don't really need another machine, since I have two already. I have my original Christmas 2009 gift- a Cricut Create, and my January 2010 Gift to Self, my Expressions. I am in love with them both, and really love having two. Anyone who wants to play with me when they come over, CAN! :-) But, I have a few beautiful (and crafty!) 'almost' sister-in-laws, both of whom I'm sure would LOVE an Expressions as a wedding gift instead of a toaster or towels!

Anywhoo! Onto my entry!
This is the interior view, it reads 'i luv you a TON!'

For the MPS Father's Day Challenge, I went ahead and made a card for my Dad. He is the best father in the world, and always gives me answers that surprise me! He is the most loving, kind hearted and generous person on this earth, and never fails to surprise how well he knows me. (for example: he insisted on a shower radio as a christmas present. My step mom thought it was a little 'silly' as did everyone else when I opened it, BUT that was my most prized and favorite christmas present that year! I use it every single shower and laugh when I think about the things he just sort of 'knows')
