Fathers Day card

I made this card for my grandpa for Father’s Day and thought I would let the kids give it to him. He has horses and the kids go out every weekend to help with them so I thought I would use this cute image from the Doodle Palace for his card. The papers I have had a Looooooogpas cardsong time waiting to use them and thought now was the perfect time. The image is colored with markers (not very well either, I might add) and then I sponged a couple white clouds in the sky with my fingertip. Yeah, I know that’s not the best way to get the clouds on there and not the neatest but I couldn’t find my sponges and didn’t want to go look for one.  When I took the lid off the green marker it put a few green spots on the horse, so I had to touch them up.

Thanks for taking the time to read all of that, lol. I had to come down to my craft room today to make another sympathy card. There have just been way too many people I know passing away lately. I am lucky though they are not close family just family members of friends but I know they are going through very rough times and wanted to be able to let them know I am thinking of them. I will post the sympathy card as soon as the stickles dry so that I can scan it.
