DIY Dog Themed Father’s Day Card For Dads

Father’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to get creative with the kids making gifts and that special DIY Father’s Day card.

My husband John is a dog lover. In fact we are all dog lovers. Yoda and Casper are our world and so when I asked Sylvia what kind of card she would like to make for John this year she said a Dog card! I even bought him a dog themed card for Valentines.
