Who doesn't love a card made with care that says just the right thing? Dad and Grandpa always love what their kids and Grandkids get for them but the most treasured gifts are those from the heart. One wonderful heartfelt gift is the handmade card. 

We have some ideas on the wording and a few creative designs too! 

What to say: 

Dad, thank you for everything you do for this family every day. You're the best!
You add the magic that makes this family fun. (I)We love you, Dad!
Dad, I know I can always count on you. You are the first person I turn to when I have a question or need some advice. Thank you for always answering. I know you will always be there for me.
Thank you for always understanding, and always being there with your love, guidance, and patience.
Dad, thank you for your time, which you give daily; your care, which you give freely and your love, which you give unconditionally. Happy Father's Day!
Although we may be separated, your guidance and love have stuck with me through it all. Happy Father's Day!

There's no better role model than you, Dad. You are Amazing!
There's no one I'd rather look up to than you. You make everything special.
Every day of my life. I’m so proud to be your daughter/son.
You’re my one and only dad, and you'll always have a special place in my heart.
Dad, You are responsible for all my favorite memories.
Happy Father's Day to my biggest hero, from your biggest fan.

The older I get, I realize how important it is to have you as my dad.
Dad, We may not always see eye to eye, but they always see heart to heart.
No matter how old someone gets, they never stop needing their father (Dad).
With Each Passing Year, The more I appreciate the values you passed on to me more.
I would not be who I am today without you and the lessons you taught me. Thank you, Dad!
Dad, You bring so much joy into our lives. On Father's day, I hope we can return some.

Happy Father's Day from your favorite pain in the patootie.
Happy Father's Day! Thank you for all your hard work. I turned out perfect.
Gouda. Mozzarella. Brie. I learned all my best cheezy jokes from you!  I really love you, Dad!
Dad, you may not know everything, but you sure had me fooled.
I wouldn’t trade you for anything, Dad. I mean, nobody’s offered me anything, but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t!
World’s greatest farter … I mean father.

FYI - To make a quick card, take a piece of paper (construction, copy, etc) Fold in half. Voila, you have a base for the card! You can also use water color paper and paint on it. You can draw pictures or glue anything you like to the front and interior of the card and add these sayings if you like.
