Dad's Day Card & Blog Candy

I'm not really sure why it is but I seem to find it easier to create cards for Father's Day than I do Mother's Day.  To make that statement even more ironic I find it difficult to make masculine cards in general.  Confused yet?  I know I am.
With Father's Day one week away I wanted to share another card with you and I also thought it would be fun to have a blog candy giveaway at the same time.  But more about that in a minute.

This was an easy to put together card.  I used the following cartridges:
Christmas Noel for the bear
Designer's Calendar for the tie and "Dad's Day"
The paper is from my scrap stash and I hate that I have no more of it because it's just soooo perfect!
Now about that giveaway.  I thought it would be fun to give away a set of Father's Day stamps from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. 
To win all you have to do is leave a comment telling me about your fondest dad memory.  Comment by next Friday, June 14th and I will choose a winner on Saturday, June 15th.  All I ask is that you live in the US for postal reasons - sorry.
My fondest memory is from when my dad was stationed over in Iceland (I was about 12 or 13) and we used to exchange cassette tape messages back and forth in the mail.  One of those times included a small hand-written note from my daddy telling me he loved and missed me.  Needless to say I still have that note and it is forever in one of my photo albums.

My fondest memory was---daddy would tell us a week in advance, he didn't need anything. "Don't spend your money", he would say!

My favorite dad memory... is not too long ago... my dad was waiting for my mom to make dinner (she hates to cook) and she walks into the kitchen and he asks her, "are you going to make dinner? Yes??? No??? You're not getting any???"... the whole house burst into laughter... my mom was confused and just walked away... He has been my dad since i was 7 and I never heard him crack a joke before... this was the first time... and it was hilarious...

Such a cute card. Love the tie on the bear... =)

My fondest memory was my dad's cooking and him teaching me how to cook his recipes.Priceless.
