Reel Special!

Hi everyone!
I have a confession to make.........I didn't send my dad a card for Father's Day this year!! <*GASP!*>
I know, I could I NOT?! I mean, it's not like I don't MAKE cards, right?! (hanging head in shame).
In my weak defense, I did call him on the phone! :) I haven't seen him in a while, but hubby and I are taking a trip home next week (the first in almost two years), so we will be spending some time together then. We're supposed to head to the zoo with many of the other family members, so I told him I'd buy him an ice cream while we're there. lol! I know that sounds funny, but if you knew my dad you would know that he LOVES ice cream! lol! There are always at least three or four different kinds in the freezer at his place! lol! AND he stays skinny as a rail!!! Grrrr........
In the meantime, I thought I'd put together a card to take with me for him. Sort of a "non-Father's Day Father Card", if you will. The inside of this one reads, 
"You are REEL special to me!".
