This is such a great Father's Day card! I love that bacon badge and the piece of bacon! Yum, that makes me want to eat bacon now :))).

Mmmm bacon...what a fun card. Thanks for sharing the inspiration behind it, I'm sure your dad will love it, lets hope he gets a bacon sarnie for his breakfast on Father's Day.

Funnily enough my parents were in Malta today and they couldn't get service in M&S which was worthy of a text and possibly as bad as not being able to get proper bacon over there!

Thanks for joining in with my challenge and sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers.
