I Love Digi #9 - Anythign BUT a card!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, June 10, 2010
This set is special!

Father's Day is coming and I wanted to make a something special for my Dad.

Now, to tell you a little about my Dad... 
He's not a sports fan, yea he likes a little baseball here and there and he can get excited about a football game, but he's not one of those "Leave me alone the game is on" type of guys.
He's not a hunter, or a fisher.
He's not exactly a couch potato - he does like to kick back and watch his favorite tv shows, but not to the potato level... 

I've always had a hard time finding the traditional Father's Day gifts, because he just doesn't fit "the mold".  So, this year... I'm looking at ALL the Father's Day stamps and images out there and nothing fits!  NOTHING!  I just didn't find anything that made me think, ok, That's my Dad!

So, I emailed my good friend, Heather, owner and designer of Fresh Brewed Designs and asked if she could help.  I told her I needed an image FOR my Dad.  I told her a few things about him.  He loves his family, he loves his dogs, he loves coffee and he loves photography.  He's always been a picture taker, but these past few years, he's really gotten into it.  He's gone on retreats and seminars and "photo walks".  He's in meet-up groups and joins them for tours and outings at least once a month.  He really loves it!  He says he's not a photographer, he's "Just a guy with a camera" but he takes some amazing photos!

So, after telling Heather all of that, I sent her some photos.  Here's what I sent her:
And here are the images that she created for me and the card/candy set that I made using it... 
My Dad has a huge sweet tooth!  He loves to have candies by his chair so that he can nibble away :)
So, I made him a little candy jar... this is a little candy jar - meaning, he won't be able to eat too many candies in one sitting!!  LOL!
This is also my DT project for this weeks I Love Digi challenge - Anything BUT a card!

Thank You, Heather!  They are amazing and I love them!  I hope Dad loves them, too!

These are custom images from Fresh Brewed Designs and will not be available in the shop, who would want an image of my Dad other than me, anyway??  If you are interested in a custom image, just visit Heather at the Fresh Brewed Blog and send her a message.
