This card is made for an angel swap I'm in. This is a different type of swap. Basically everyone puts in a name of someone that could use happy/encouragement mail in their mailbox. Then you are randomly given a name to send a card to. The person requested the card to go to a man to offer him support of parenthood and let him know he rocks as a father. I asked a couple follow up questions and found out he plays basketball with his son every weekend. So I started praying to find out what kind of card God wanted him to get. I looked at quotes and found 2 that I felt led to use. I was going to make two different cards but ended up with the holy spirit prompting me to use the 2nd one inside:
"There will be so many times
you feel like you've failed.
But in the eyes, heart, and mind
of your child you ARE Super Dad.
You are their world.
And you are doing a fabulous job."
- Stephanie Precourt
A little background on the inside quote. The original quote says Mom. But I really felt it is what I needed to send. So I wrote Stephanie and asked her if it had every been changed and would she mind if I changed Mom to Dad. She said she doesn't think it has been changed but can totally see how it pertains to both parents so she gave me permission to change it!
I used MOJO Monday #420 sketch for my inspiration.
