Happy Father's Day!

Good evening... hope you have all had a good weekend despite the weather!! Although it has brightened up today in Manchester UK and we've actually had some sun peeping through!! LOL

I coloured this image a few weeks ago and thought it would look nice on a Father's Day Card... 

The wonderful image is from Stitchy Bear Stamps and called 'In the Harbour'. Paper was a freebie with magazine.  It's quite a simple design and so I've added a few shells for interest... coloured with Promarkers and I've used a Blender Pen to create clouds...


Hope you like it...
