Father's Day at Sugar Creek Hollow

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is Father's day.

My dad died many years ago but I thought I could still make him a card he might be looking down on me somewhere and think it is a nice idea. He loved music and cars and travel so I have tried to put a bit of that into the card. The picture I aged by making it more like a stamped imaged and sepia coloured.

Tim Holtz cog die cuts and a gold, embossed flower I made to complete the card. The bottom saying is advice he gave me from an early age and the top one is mine.

  5. What a beautiful story and work of "heart"....I am sure he would have loved this. You should frame this as it is too lovely to put away. Thanks for sharing with us at Sugar Creek Hollow.
