These were the images that the DT used to create our projects for this week.  I was given image #3.  As you can see, the little guy originally held a paper in his left hand.  I wanted to demonstrate how by changing one small ascpect of the image, you could create a card with a totally different meaning.  With the permission of the creator of the Digital image (always get permission to make changes to images), I took out the paper and replaced it with a flower.  I knew I wanted to create a Mother's Day card with a special message.  We moms continue to see our grown men as little boys even though they may have long since left the nest.  This little guy represents both the grown man that he sees and becomes (carrying his tools) and the little boy that his mom still sees (bringing her flowers).  Thank you for allowing me to make a slight alteration to this digital image.

I hope you enjoyed my card as a DT member of Through the Craft Room Door.  I encourage you to head over to our blog to see what all the other DT members have created for you today, as well as to learn more about my card adn the supplies I used to create it.  While you are there consider joining our challenge. This week's prize comes from Paola Jofre/My Whimsical Little World - ($6.00 gift card).  Click HERE to enter!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Please consider becoming a follower of my blog so that you can find your way back to our challenges each week.  Have a wonderful day.
