Late Father's Day card!

It only seems appropriate that since I did an 'early' Father's Day card a couple of weeks ago, that now I'm posting a 'late' one! The early one was for my son since he would be gone on his honeymoon over Father's Day, and the late one is for my DH. I actually gave it to him on Sunday, just getting around to posting it today! I also wanted to get it posted for the That's Krafty Thursday challenge over at The Spotted Chick's blog. (double-duty!!)

As soon as I saw this image over at Mo's Digital Pencil, I knew I had to have it for my DH's card!  I just love it!  My DH is such an awesome Father and Grandpa...and this image so brought to mind he and my 5-year old grandaughter at my son's wedding last weekend. :)  I started with Kraft, Chocolate Chip and ...I think...Baha Breeze cardstock ~ colored with Prismacolor Pencils blended with OMS, stitched around the bases and added as masculine a punched edge as I could find! Then a couple of Dew Drops to complete it!  I really wanted to add ribbon too, but couldn't make it work! (Don't look too close!! I was experimenting with 2 different pencil colors and wound up mixing them....thought it still looked okay and I was running out of time so kept it.) What do you think? 


Don't you think it's kind of reminiscent of these wedding photos of my DH & our little grandaughter Lucy?





















Have a great day!!

That stamp totally looks like it was designed after your husband and granddaughter... seriously. I had to take a second look to confirm you hadn't hand-drawn it yourself or something! So lovely--I hope he loved the card!
