Father's Day Card using Cricut Cuts

Today I have a card  to show that  I made for a very special person in my life, my Step Father Greg... he means many worlds to me.

I love that he can be quite goofy so I can have an excuse to be just as goofy,

I love that he can lend seeds of wisdom in a gentle way giving you the choice to water it or not.

I love that he is a crazy hard worker so I never had to worry about my mom

I love that he stepped into a family of five and never looked back,  I should say a LIVELY family of five... actually there were points we were lunatics..hehe!

I love how he never judged me through the lets say "the experimental" years of my life.

I loved our private chats when he had just picked me up from soccer practice  or  from the church group
I love how he mumbles as he is walking away from you or at the other end of the house , first or last we never know what he  said... my mom and I just look at each other for that short second and continue watching TV, hehe!

I love his big hardy haha laugh when telling something he thinks is really funny ,  he gets louder and more determined to get it out with a little stutter here and there.

I love his quiet serene persona in the morning as he prepares himself for the day making eggs in an iron cast frying pan and sets tea up for my mom for when she wakes.

I love that he has an amazing positive attitude that has helped both my mom and I when he had part of his Kidney taken out last fall, his first words I remember were " you only need one Kidney to live"

As you could imagine I could go on and on, this is my stepfather and my love runs deeper than the deepest ocean, cliche (cli-shay) I know but it expresses just how I feel.

Here is the card I made for Greg!!!
