Fab Father’s Day Cards 13

There is nothing better than receiving a kids made card and Father’s Day is no exception.  I love getting creative with the MiniMads and coming up with ideas for this years card for MadDad.  The boys love their father and there is something about watching the Husbeast with his boys that makes me go weak at the knees.
