Card for my Daddy and Copic Color Challenge #15

Here is my card for the CCC #15. It is a card for my Daddy...Yes, I know I am 38 26 years old, and I still call him "Daddy." That is what he has always been and that is what he will always be!

My Daddy rocks! Here are the Top Ten Reasons Why...(in no particular order...)

1: He has always put my mom and me before himself.

2: He does that with my children as well.

3: When I am in trouble, he will drop whatever he is doing to help me out, no matter how
important it may be.

4: When I call, he always says, "Well, hello my little darlin'!"

5: When I am faced with difficult decision, I can count on him to discuss all sides with me.

6: His brain is my personal GPS! He can tell you the fast way, the short way, the scenic route, for anywhere you want to go!

7: He knows where all the best places to eat are, along the way!

8: He prays for me and my family.

9: He can make a mean pot of Jambalaya! (Chicken, rice, sausage & spices for you yankees! LOL)
10: He still calls me "Baby," *sniff*

I love you Daddy! Have a Wonderful Father's Day...You Are The Best!!!!!

Ok, the CS is SU Real Red/Whisper White and DCWV Navy from a stack called Everyday Cardstock & Prints. The polka dot and stripe DP are singles I bought recently from Joann, and the image is from an MFT set called Let's Hear It For The Boy, which I colored with Copic markers using the R59 for the rug. The sentiment is from the same set, but I printed it out to make it bigger. The brads are Basic Grey, Urban Prairie and the buttons come from a red/white/blue multipack I bought at Stuffmart. I paper-pieced the dad, rug and tv and popped them up on dots for dimension and popped up the sentiment as well.

I followed the theme thru to the inside and printed out another sentiment from the MFT set. BTW, this card is 5 1/5 by 5 1/2.
