Fathers Day card

What a gorgeous day out today, hope the weather wherever you might be is also lovely. It is about 75 degrees and sunny and I have all the windows and doors open, there is a light breeze blowing and life is good. I made a promise to myself before I did anything else I would get my dads Fathers Day card done so that is what took up most of my morning. My dad loves to garden and is always in a race to see what he can grow before anyone else so I thought the following image would be perfect for him.


The image is called Big Guy by mo manning, the papers are October Afternoon and he is colored with copics and prismacolor pencils for extra shading. The brads in the corner, that you can't read, say "dad". I have had them forever, they were from the clearance bin somewhere. Unfortunately I forgot to put them on before I taped it all down so you can see the back of them on the inside of the card but I know my dad won't care. I used the sketch from CPS this week so I am also going to enter my card there. Crossing my fingers cause MFT is the sponsor and I love their stuff. Enjoy the rest of your day!
