    Hi Holly~

    At first I thought you had worked your art on a wood tray…I didn’t know it was a card for a couple of seconds. The papers are just “Perfectly Dad!” The colors you chose are so rich, yet so masculine! And, that first is fab! Gotta love it! And, even if it isn’t a tray to be hung over the fire place in some cabin…it can still go on the mantle!
