Freshly Made Sketches #138- A sketch by Jen T.

I wanted to get a head start on getting a Father's day card done for my dad. I used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Today is also the last day to order the stamp I used- Look up to Father. I have always looked up to my dad and not just because he's 6' 2". My dad is a social worker and just recently retired from St. Louis County after a little over 30 years working mainly in child protection. He was a supervisor over several areas of family services when he retired. He inspired me to become a social worker, although I went the opposite route and work with the elderly. He's the best person I know, and I am extremely lucky that I got to be his daughter.

Anyway, this stamp fit perfectly for me. 
 Here is my take on the sketch:
