Hurray for Dad!


The family is on Dad Patrol. He needs anything from down the stairs, there they go for him! Garbage needs to go out? My son will run it out! Feel like pork chops tonight? They're in the oven by the time he gets home from work.
AND we all give him special cards on his day, too. Of course, the family comes to me for the cards, and so here is one from my son. He said dad does so much, he juggles work and bill paying and driving all over, so I took that juggling theme to heart and colored a Dustin Pike digi-image.
I cut out the birthday party hat and the cupcake that he was originally holding and replaced the cupcake with a a fishbowl, which was a lonely, leftover sticker that I popped onto white cardstock and outlined in black. I used the following Copics to color my elephant: C1,3 & RV00. That's all! and colored him twice, and popped out his trunk with some dimensional dots. I handwrote the sentiment with White Gelly Roller pen from Sakura, and added a couple of blue, shaped paper clips, and pasted the image against a diecut yellow starburst.
