My Dad
Sweet Sketch 57
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sponsor: Digi Doodle Shop

These are two pictures of my Dad on the farm when he was 10 and 12 years of age. The first picture is Dad standing in front of the rootbeer stand. The second picture is of him sitting on a pile of watermelons. The acres of farm land no longer is now fancy condos and houses.

So when I saw this Farm Boy image on the Digi Doodle Shop site, I knew I had to use it to create a card for my dad for Father's Day! Doesn't it remind you of him? There were plenty of apples, peaches and cherries on the farm too! I could go on and on but I won't!

Well, I did mail this card to my Dad and he really seemed to enjoy it. Nancy and Arlana also made a card for him. I think we all touched a spot that brought back childhood memories for him.

Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop and this image is called "Farm Boy and Apples." Digi Doodle Shop has such a fabulous prize this week.

I want to say Goodbye to Heather. This is her last week on the SSW DT. She will be greatly missed....a very talented lady with her own digi store. The good thing is we can always visit her and also look forward to having her sponsor us at SSW!
Best Wishes to you, Heather!
