Happy Father's Day!!!

Good Morning and Happy Father's Day! I am blessed to still have my 84-year-old father still living, and he's a wonderful and godly father. So, I wanted to make him a serene, but "happy place" card. Two of his favorite colors are green and burgundy, so these papers worked quite well for the color scheme for coloring. I used a cute digi image called, "Birds Go By" available at Phindy's Place. The kitty at the end of the pier was quite hard to color because he was so small, but I was determined to color him like my own tortoise-shell calico kitty, "Peanut".  I've coordinated the card interior and left a small place for a personal message, as shown below. Remember, you can always right-click on any photo to see a larger view.

This is gorgeous. I love the color combination and the water looks like it is moving. I am so glad you still have your father and shared this card with us that you made for him.
