Thanks for EVERYTHING...

Hello all.
     I finally decided to share this card that I made for Jerry as his Father's Day card from me.  When I sat down to make it I got to thinking that most likely men don't really want to see another man on the front of their cards... At least I am pretty sure that  Jerry is more likely to enjoy a very Cheeky looking girl instead.  lol... So once my thought pattern started in that direction I came across my 'Sitting Casual' set from The Greeting Farm.  I saw the stamp from the man cave and that started me thinking Jerry would love a very Cheeky girl sitting on his favorite chair even better.  lol... Well, Jerry doesn't have a man cave, and the only 'Cheeky' girl he had better have on his favorite chair better be me.  'That's a whole other conversation,  I will leave it by saying for those of you that know the TV show 'Friends' ...  as well as we do, much like Joey  "Lisa Doesn't Share"  lol... Sorry inside family joke. 
     So while I had all these thoughts brewing I also took a look at my Weekend Market paper pad from BoBunny and right away I knew I wanted it to look like an old library complete with a huge world map on the wall.  If you know us well you know that Jerry is my go to man for telling me where everything is located in the world.  That includes where all my followers and the blogs I follow are.   :O)  It also goes without saying that Jerry and I have always dreamed of having a huge library in our home that looks a lot like the one in Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast.'  lol...As you can see this is a card made specific for my Polar Bear of a husband.  He might look scary sometimes, but he protects me and his two cubs like the biggest Polar Bear there ever was.  He also has a big heart to go with that gruff.  Love you honey! 
     Now that you have seen just a little more into our wacky home I will wish you all a very Happy day and talk at you tomorrow.  Thanks for letting me ramble on.  It really helps me unwind from a busy work day.  :O) 
Hugs, Lisa G

Love love love this card Lisa! What a great idea to put her on the chair and I love the darker papers, very vintage looking. Hope you have all had a great weekend and Jerry a great Fathers Day!

What a great story to go along with this card, it was so fun reading about your thought process on it! I'm sure that Jerry thoroughly enjoyed this fabulous card that you made for him! :)
