My Dad, Mr. Fix It

Happy World Cardmaking Day!  I was determined to get to my craft room and actually make a card to celebrate the day.  It took me all day to get there, but I did!
So we have gradually been running out of hot water all week....we knew that the heating elements in our hot water heater needed to be replaced, and were hoping that it would make it until my Dad had some time to look at it.  He was planning on coming up on Friday and that morning my husband and I both had cold showers! brrrrr!  That was great timing!  He came and replaced the elements and the thermostat, and we have hot water again! Yay! 
So I made him this card, he is our Mr. Fix It.  This stamp set is called Fix It Fred, and my Dad's name is Fred.  It was meant to be. 
I used the color challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments to make this card.  The colors were early espresso, island indigo, and tangerine tango. 
Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope you all enjoyed World Cardmaking Day!
