Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tag Challenge
Go on over to the challenges and check out the entries! 
Oh wait! Bet you thought I forgot! Well, I couldn't find a good Father's Day song, so here's a good one of Paul McCartney singing "Drive My Car". Since I have a car in the tag, I thought this would go nicely. Paul opened with this song when he came to Halifax in 2009. This is the concert in Quebec in 2008.  Thanks for looking and have a very creative day!

Sing along if you want to! You know you do.....

Debbie, even the tiny thumbnail I saw for the Grungy Monday entries looked lovely, and seeing it now full size? WOW! This is absolutely gorgeous!!! Your use of Distress Ink is masterful, and the design just rocks. Plus, anytime someone quotes Katherine Hepburn AND includes a Paul McCartney song, they're automatically my hero. Bravo!!!
