365 Cards ~ Father's Day Present :)

My husband is about to go back to work after a fabulous 9 months of parental leave after the birth of our daughter. We have had such a wonderful time bonding as a family of 4 and cannot believe he just has 3 weeks left with us before we are back to evening and weekend family fun! 

So I thought it would be fun to make his Father's Day gifts all things for going back to work! We got him a new pair of shoes, several silk ties and I made him this shadow box frame to hang in his office. He is going to miss seeing those cute little faces everyday so this way when he is lonely for them he can glance over and there they are :) 

I entered his Father's Day card in the 365 Cards challenge but thought it would be fun to post this as well (and his finished card with help from Ethan & Claire)!
