Three Muses Challenge-Oh Man

I made this piece last year as a Father's Day card for my dad--that's him in the middle. Below are the words from the inside.

You didn’t tell us how to live
You lived
And let us watch you do it

It takes a special man
To be a great dad

Some of the images came from a collage sheet from Elizabeth at the Last Door down the Hall. I urge those of you who don't know her blog to visit it. It's full of wonderful stuff--great art, wonderful writing, yummy recipes and lots more. I don't remember where I found the clock or the guy in the lower right corner. The butterfly is from Dover
