Times have changed and young fathers are becoming more actively involved in the routine care of their newborns and the upbringing of their children. My searches for an appropriate image portraying this change came up empty.
As my son was expecting a son of his own and I LOVE Teresa Sherman's loving mother images available at Crafts and Me Stamps and Delicious Doodles, I made a special request to have a loving father image created that I could use on a project for my son. I was jumping up and down with joy when I received this fantastic image called A Father's Love by Teresa Sherman available at Crafts and Me Stamps here.
I'd like to extend a very special THANK YOU to Teresa for so creatively meeting my needs with this gorgeous image!
This photo shows my completed card front where I've used this fantastic new image. Lifestyle Crafts Large Circles die cuts shape my image. A Zig Pure Blue marker provides a border of faux stitching. A Lifestyle Crafts Tag It Kit's tag is stamped with a "new baby" stamp that was part of a free clear stamp set accompanying a Cardmaking and Papercrafting magazine. A silver baby rattle charm hangs from a piece of My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally Celebrate blue twine.
This view shows my easel card, open and ready for display . . .
