Father's Day


Sadly my own father passed away when I was only 12 years old and I think about him every day but even more so at Father's Day as it was around that time that he died.However,on the bright side I do have a wonderful husband and I have made him a card from "the boys". I have combined the mytimetocraft challenge(making a Father's Day card) with the sketch provided by Friday Sketchers who are sponsored this week by Sirstampalot.
I drew the image because my husband is a joiner(carpenter) and coloured it with Promarkers.
I have aded some mini tools which I bought ages ago from a dolls' house shop.
And okay,for anyone who knows him.....he hasn't had this much hair since I married him 22 years ago!!
