Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!  
I hope all the Dad's out there are having a wonderful day.  
My Dad has been gone for a couple of years now but we still have Dad's in our lives to make cards for.
Here are my two younger kids making their Father's Day cards.  Those little cards were sealed up in the envelopes so quick I didn't get a chance to take a picture of them.  

The kids might have been too fast for me but I have a photo of the card I made for my husband.

When I first saw this image from Mo's Digital Pencil I knew I had to have it, he's called The Big Guy and he looks like my Grandad, W.I. Hunnicutt.  My Grandad was a large man and always wore overalls like these and an engineers hat, he loved to garden too.  

I hope one day she makes some of the "big guys" that look like my husband because he's the opposite of this image.  He's tall (like 6' 5") and thin and he loves gardening too.  He's grown us some of the most delicious tomatoes this year and sun flowers taller than him!   I made sure to write him a note inside telling him how much he's loved and appreciated.

I have one more thing to tell you about today!  
In Style Stamps is having a design team call, you can check it out here on their blog!

Happy Father's Day!

Jan, this image is so terrific and you did a totally fab job of coloring. He reminds me of my Grandpa too - Elmer G. Hyde. I lived 9 years on a farm in Arkansas with him and my Grandma. Sigh - your card has given me a few moments of pure joy! Thanks, Louise

That's a great image. It would be perfect for my dad, who is larger and absolutely loves growing tomatoes. Maybe I'll have to buy him a pair of overalls to match the picture. :o) Thanks for sharing!
