For you Dad

Happy Father's day! 

Today I have a card for my Dad inspired by the photo at Altenew June Inspiration Challenge.  I used the Birch Land Stamp set and colors found in the inspiration photo.

The sentiment from Precious Moments is double stamped in Moon Rock and Lava Rock crisp inks. I colored the trunk of the tree with my Ziggys! Leaves and grass inked in shades from
I think I could build lovely trees all day with this set!  The set is easy to work with and the lines very forgiving when coloring. This card took less than 30 minutes...I know because my DH was waiting patiently for me to finish:)

For you Dad, the first man to hold my heart.
Thanks for teaching me to stand tall, as you do at 6 foot 6, always reminding me that even a giant can be gentle, peaceful and strong in times of adversity.
I am blessed to have you as an example in seeking a godly man to be my husband. Thank you, Dad for handing me over to him; my best friend, who is selfless, patient and loving, just like you.
Thank you for continued support through never ceasing prayer and encouragement from the sidelines.
Thank you for being an amazing grandfather to our 6 children! 

You are my hero! 

I love you Dad. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a Blessed day.
