I made this card for Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge # 106 and A Day for Daisies challenge # 106- It's a new.... I felt it was only fitting to showcase the wonderful digital stamp that I won from the SSW #100 Blog Hop Celebration by A Day for Daisies for these 2 challenges. I still can't believe I won but, I was able to choose any picture I wanted and she made it into this wonderful digi. I usually don't post pictures of my kids, a little paranoid I know, but I thought you should see the original picture and how wonderful her work is. It is my favorite picture, they all are so happy, they just got done having a water fight. I felt it was the perfect picture and the perfect thing to use for Father's Day! My kids were so excited, they felt they were super stars. I let them pick the color they wanted there clothes to be, it actually was hard to color them because they are my kids, weird huh but I have never colored someone I know. Anyways, enough babbling, I used the wonderful sketch below from SSW and made this wonderful card. He loved it and told me it was a keepsake. All the papers are from Basic Grey, they make wonderful masculine colored papers! So hop over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and A Day for Daisies to look at there wonderful creations and join in on the fun! I hope you enjoy and all you Dad's out there have a wonderful Happy Father's Day!!!

Hi Lucianna, this is absolutely fabulous!!! I am so glad that you showed us what you had made from a photo after winning Challenge 100. It's totally amazing and your card turned our perfectly what an awesome job such a cute image but a great masculine card I bet your DH absolutely adored it I love it. You'll cherish this image for ever. I think I would blow this image up to an A4 and colour it and then frame it for the house as it's fantastic and then everyone can see it when they come into your home and you could also have the photo framed next to it to compare. Congratulations on an awesome card. Fantastic job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
