My Boy


Hello!  Another week is kicking off here now, but I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!  We had a wonderful one full of family and celebrating my dad for Father's Day.  I used my custom image from Saturated Canary to make a card for him.  This is My Boy and Krista drew it for me as a prize from a contest she had a while back.  She captured my small man to a "T", right down to his favorite blankie and Teddy!  I colored the image with Copics and then cut it using Labels Seventeen Nestabilities (Spellbinders) and added some Shabby Blue Frantage.  I used one of the Fancy Tags dies (Spellbinders) behind the image.  Papers are My  Mind's Eye - Lost & Found: Portobello Road.  The current Sweet Sketch Wednesday (HERE) is my base and I added a few elements like the Flag Banner from La-La-Land Crafts and the sentiment from a Cornish Heritage Farms Mona Lisa Moments Father's Day Centers set that was in my physical stamps stash.  I finished up with gold metal brads from Tim Holtz and a length of blue gingham ribbon.   



And, here is the inspiration for the image:

 
 We took my dad out to breakfast with one of my brothers (who actually paid for us all!  Thanks, Jay!) and then spent the rest of the day at my parents'.  Kayne made his papa a special gift and I snapped a photo of the two of them.  He painted the rock himself and was very proud of his handiwork.  The gift was a big hit!



I am so lucky to have such a wonderful dad and it makes me so happy to see the great memories he's building with the next generation too!  Thanks for stopping by and check back for another Father' day card to be blogged before the week is out.

Markers used: Copics (E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E31, E39, E79, N0, N2, N4, N6, R20, R32, R35, Y61, B00, B32, N34, B37, BV000, BV02, BV13).
