Father's Day 2011

As my dad will be 50 right after Father's Day this year, I decided to make a combined card for both occasions... As my parents are still on holidays he missed Father's Day here already, which was last Thursday. They will return the day before my dad's birthday... So this card is perfect then!
Da mein Vater direkt nach dem Vatertag 50 wird, habe ich mich entschlossen eine kombinierte Karte für beides zu machen... Da meine Eltern noch im Urlaub sind, hat er den Vatertag, letzten Donnerstag, eh schon verpasst. Sie kommen am Tag vor Dad's Geburtstag zurück... Daher ist diese Karte perfekt für ihn!
