He never complains, asks for anything and is the most INCREDIBLE Dad to our son! Without him ~ I would be lost! So Happy Birthday Rich ~ I love you! Onto my card ~

I saw this Tim Holtz pocket watch at Michael's awhile back and had to have it! At the time I had no idea what I was going to use it for but thought it was so darn cute!  Well the "TIME" has come to use it! I actually used my Imagine! I knocked the dust off of it! I used the Teresa Collins Black and White cartridge! Oh my the endless possibilities with this cartridge! I LOVE it! I hope you enjoy!
