It feels very odd not to be posting a DT card for QKR Stampede on a Friday morning but this is the week before we start our monthly challenges for the summer so our challenge from last week is still running until Sunday evening. We will be starting our monthly challenges on the 1st of each month and that's next Monday. You still have a couple of days to enter something in our previous challenge so check it out. It's an Anything Goes theme so how can you lose?
I spent some time the other day going through folders I have of digital images from companies which have closed their doors and stopped selling. I found this in my folder of images from Karen's Digis. While I was there, I printed out three or four additional images which I will color and share in upcoming days. But with this image, I'm making two cards, and both of them are Father's Day cards.
You see, I have one son and one SIL who are equally adept at the BBQ grill and feeding their families. Fortunately, they live 1,000 miles apart in different states and they'll never share their cards with each other so they'll never know I used the same image. The fun part is that this image would work well for any weekend day in either of their homes and even for a birthday. I wouldn't have to wait for Father's Day. :-D The fun part is that I have a son and a grandson who have back to back birthdays in June and this card would definitely work for either of them.
This is my next foray into the world of water coloring while trying to get decent shading and highlights. I don't know if there's any real improvement over my last one but I did get some good shadows where they seem to belong. lol

I'll show you the other one when I get it finished. In the meantime, I hope your weather is cool and decent. Ours has been over 100 degrees F (I mean like 102, 103, 106 and they are saying 107 today) for 4 days and we're still three weeks away from summer! Yuck, why do I live here?
Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
