Handmade Father's Day Card

Father's Day is just two weeks from this Sunday.  This afternoon I made a handmade card for my dad.  I have been scrapbooking and making handmade cards for about a year now.  WARNING:  It is very addictive!
I have another blog where I have posted some of my greeting cards.  I have recently discovered the fun and ease of using digitial stamps.  A digital stamp is especially made to be colored and used on handmade greeting cards or scrapbooking projects.  I love Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.  Mo Manning is a children's book illustrator who has built a very successful business selling digital stamps.
The name of this digital stamp image is "The Big Guy's Garden".  I chose this image because my dad worked as a farmer and wore overalls just like this when he worked in the fields.  I used Prismacolor pencils to color the image and a solvent to blend the colors.

I will write a personal Father's Day greeting on the inside of the card.
