Happy Father's Day PopPop!

This card is for my father-in-law, Dad, Henry, PopPop!  All one to us.  He is a wonderful father...for many reasons:
  • His special connections with his grandchildren.  He loves the little, little babies and can comfort just about any little one...and his favorite spot is feeding a baby or getting a little one to fall asleep in his arms.  His 14 grandchildren are very blessed.
  • His five children give him quite the hard time about anything and he always handles it with a big laugh...and jabbing right back at them.
  • He's never far from a special event or a sporting event for our boys.  Making them extra special by treating them with Nana to lunch or dinner after a big accomplishment.
  • Makes the boys feel extra special...knowing how excited Ryan was for his new cell phone..he's been calling and texting him on that phone instead of ours and calling when he knows they've done well.
  • Making one on one time for each of the kids....Karate Kid with Jonathon this weekend, sleepovers with the six year old many more we could name...
  • But most importantly, loving each and every one of us and being there in good and bad times.
Happy Father's Day Dad, PopPop, Henry...we love you!

This card is playing along with Jenny's Wee Memories Stitching Challenge and Cards Father's Day Challenge.  Inspiration for the layout on this card came from Maile's card here.  Love how the paper goes over the edge just a little bit!
Ingredients:  PTI Buttons and Twine; PTI Daily Designs and Daily Design Sentiment Stamps; Basic Grey White Paper Pad; SU Sand and Whisper White Paper; SU Bordering Blue Ink
