The Best Days ~

I know there are a lot of guys out there who love to work in their shops, just like we ladies love our crafting time.  However, I'd have to take a bet that my Dad is one of a special few that continues to enjoy his 'shop time' now as much as he does.   His talents are many and the designs he has produced over the years are amazing.  So many have been blessed with his abundant sharing of his God given talents.

Friday Dad turned 86 and although moving a little slower, continues to be in great health.  I'd like to share the 'shop' card I made for him for his birthday.  I've used Lili of the Valley's 'Workbench' digital image.

 This image is 'so Dad'.... although I doubt there is a tool on the floor.  His many years at DuPont instilled a safety focus at a pretty high level.  But the focus of course is how our happy days are spent when we find the things we love - and are able to do those things daily. 

Happy Birthday Dad!  
May you continue to have many more Shop Days!
