My last Father's Day Card

Finally! I got them all done, & it isn't even Sunday morning! LOL! So for the first time in years, all the dad's in my life will get their well wishes on Father's day! I always have the best of intentions, but things always seem to fall off track. Now I just have to get them in the mail tomorrow :)
This is one of the first Digi stamps I downloaded, he is such a cutie don'tcha think?!  I found him thru Free Digi Stamps at the Operation Write Home site. I believe he is by Hambo Stamps & is called Wee Henry. He is so perfect for my dad right down to his flannel shirt. So I colored him in with my pencils, using the Gamsol method & then inked in the clouds w/ some chalk ink. I distressed the mat a little behind him & added a length of fibers behind the pre-made tag (the fibers remind me of a fishing fly) Both the fiber & the tag came from the deep dark recesses of my supply drawer- who knows where they came from or how long they've been waiting to see the light of day. All the DP is from my scrap pile.

I am entering him on the following challenges:
