Best Dad- for My Husband : )

I found a fabulous digi that was perfect for my husband's Fathers Day card at Create with TLC.  I paired the image with a background from the Technique Junkies called Colorwash Alcohol.

  I colored the image lightly with Copics (and we are in the Chicago Cubs territory......) and used Red and Brilliant Blue colors with a splash of white.  I sponged Gray ink on the image and sentiment. 

  My husband plays baseball on an over 50's league. The team played on Saturday, and he had a huge thrill- Randy Hundley came- he was the catcher for the Chicago Cubs in the late 60's and in the 70's.

  My husband- Ray- is just below and to the Right of Randy- kneeling. They had an exciting game- and Mr Hundley was the coach for the day- they pulled out a win from behind at the end of the game!
