Isabella's Challenge #12 - Honoring Fathers

Good Morning and welcome to another weekly challenge at Isabella's Sketchbook
This week in honor of Father's Day we are honoring none other than Dear Old Dad!!  I picked out this image of a golf bag and clubs in honor of my dad!  He is my rock and he is always there for me, no matter what I need!  He is the official bug killer, a/c filter changer, plumber, electrician and whatever other person I need at that moment.  But most of all he has given me countless hours of support and guidance for 41 years now and how can you thank someone for that???  I Love You Dad, on Father's Day and always!!

So your challenge this week is to visit Isabella's Boutique and pick out your own Father's Day image that fits your father and create a card that will do your dad proud!  You could win two free images and the I Won Badge to display proudly on your blog!  Also, check out what the design team has created for you to inspire you!  They are a talented bunch and I am lucky to be able to work with them. 

I wanted to extend a special thank you to one of my co-workers Karim for helping me out with the wonderful watercoloring he did for my golf bag!  He is a very talented artist and it was so kind of him to share his talents with me for this image and card!  So Happy Father's Day Karim!

That's all for now, get out there and create your own Father's Day Card!  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
