Stampin Up Ribbon and Satin ribbon.
The names of the images I used are: La Promenade (the walk) and Once
For "La Promenade" I used Copics: R29, E00, YG03, BG10, RV11, RV42 and YG08. The paper is from Stampin Up, and American Girl. I used ribbon from Hobby Lobby and made a handmade flower.
This card is honor of my Father. He celebrated his 92th birthday this year.
He is such a special part of my life and I have really developed a very close relationship with him the last 10-15 years.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DAD!
My father worked for the state of Utah as a Fishery Biologist. He also took care of the family farm. He would work on the farm early in the morning and then go to work for the state for an eight hour day. On returning home, he would work until dark on the farm. I will never forget how hard he worked to make sure we had food on the table. I never remember going without... Although, dad tells us that he worried from day to day as to how he was going to provide for all six of us kids. And, Mom was always close by, ready to cook things up to profection. We had all the fresh produce that we wanted and the rest of it he would sell on the corner to people in the community. The people loved his produce. The farm was in our family for over 100 years. My grandfather sold produce and so did my great-grandfather.
I have so many fond memories of our farm and all the wonderful times we had there. It was hard work..and dad really did made us work. And so, when our children were old enough to work down in the field, my husband and I made sure that they had the experience working with my dad too. They grumbled about it just like we did when we were kids, but now, they only talk about the special time they had with their grandpa. And Oh, yes, they do mention the never ending rows of tomatoes, raspberries, beans and other fruits and vegetables that they had to pick. But now it is with fond memories. I was really saddened when the property was sold and new homes were built there. We have tons of pictures of the farm before it was sold. Those memories will forever be with me. I am sure my siblings and our children feel the same way.
Thanks Dad for all you have done and still do for all of us!
I love you!
I came across this free image over at Digital Two for Tuesday.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
I just finished a blog hop over at Shirleys 2 Girls. They have some amazing wedding cards colored up for your inspiration.
Part of the challenge is to make a card using something old. I have used some old ribbon that I have in my stash and an Old image that I had from Indadinkado. The pack is called "Thank You"
I've had the paper for awhile, so I am not sure were I got it or who it is made by..
I also wanted to make this card simple to show off the paper and fun image.
Hope you enjoy my creation! And thanks for stopping by!
