I'll Pass On The Cake, But Thanks...


DT Post for 
Linky Party #78 
 This card is for a very special man in my life, my dad.   
You know that phrase, "Paybacks are a ....", I can attest that this is true and I've been waiting two years to zing my dad for the card he gave me when I turned 40!
I was nice enough to let his 60th go by without one single comment, but 61....
all's fair in love and war.

My dad has a wonderful sense of humor and if he wasn't still a marathon runner, snowboarder and water skier; I might think twice about giving him this particular card.  What am I saying?  No, I wouldn't....game on!

I know he'll find the humor in it and I hope you do too.

 I couldn't find a stamped sentiment that worked well enough with this image, so I had to make up my own.
 I'll be sure to give Dad a nice card too.  The sweet, sentimental, you're a great guy, yada yada, yada card too, but this one is much more fun to share.

Moving on to the fun part, here is my....

Hello Q
Like everyone else I think the card is brilliant and a good old spoof,
and if your Dad is anything like you he will see the humour and just love it, what made me laugh more was the sentiment inside, I immediately had this picture of him turning around and bending over!!!!!!! OMG did I actually write that!
Smiles:)

Give me a minute to wipe off the drink I spit out when I read the inside of this!! As if the front wasn't funny enough with the little butt cheeks hangin' out and your guy's sarcastic little comment! This is the ultimate funny card and if your Dad's humor is anything like yours, I'm sure he loved it too!
Our letter of the week this week was W and one of my little girls brought a whoopie cushion for show and tell. They had so much fun using it and couldn't believe it when their teacher sat on the chair with the cushion. Of course, I modeled good manners and said "Why, excuse me!" Oh the things we learn at preschool!!

What a funny card! Your dad sounds like a great guy and he is a lot more energetic at 61 than I am so kudos to him and Happy Birthday!
BTW, love your homemade sentiment. :-)
