To One Cool Dad!!

It's time for another fabulous challenge at Pattie's Creations and this time the theme is Father's Day. That's right we want to see all of your fabulous creations made just for dad....after all, his day is going to be here soon.

I was so excited to be able to work with one of Pattie's newer images for this challenge. It's called Dog Days of Summer and it is just the greatest image. The first time I saw it I just knew that I wanted to do something with it.
I decided to do a card for my hubby from my kids with this wonderful image. I wanted it to be something that gives him the idea to kick back and relax but also show a bit of who he is...someone that is always tinkering around the house.
I coloured the image with my Prisma Scholar Pencil crayons and used oms to blend. The cs for the base is by Core'dinations, the green with black polka dot dp is by the Lost and Found series of My Mind's Eye, and the blue dp with margarita's on it is called Tropical Paradise by Reminisce. The tools and are from Recollections and the "Drinks" are from my stash.
To join in on our challenge just go to Pattie's Creations Challenge Blog. You don't have to use a Pattie's Creations image...although we would be thrilled if you did, but if you do it will give you an extra chance in our random draw. All creations must have a stamped or digital image (this is one of Pattie's rules). You can also find a list of our rules and prizes there as well as all the fantabulous creations that my team mates have created. I know they would appreciate a word or two from you.

Thanks for popping in and I hope to see you all for this wonderful challenge....

This is a perfect card for a Dad. All those tools and little extras look great with this image and theme.

This is so cute and I'm sure your husband will love it. Love how you wrote the message on clear acetate (i'm guessing) and such fun paper choices.
