A Father's Love

Hello, fellow bloggers! I made this card for my loving husband. I looked, and looked for an image that would represent a memory of him for such a special day. When I saw this one, I knew it was the one! How many times, since our son was born, I saw this moment... And how it melted my heart!!! The baby looks just like Nick used to look at that point in his new life. I put my love and appreciation for my husband in this creation, and he absolutely loved it. Isn't that was it's all about? Here is the card.
