Best Fishes, Dad!
My brother took my 82 year old father fishing yesterday. He uses a walker, so even getting him in a boat is interesting. But they caught some fish, and they spent time together on the water. It sounds like it was a great day of father/son bonding. Life is good when you're on the water, the fish are biting, the sun is shining, and the wind isn't blowing.
Knowing that my father loves to fish, and with Father's Day just around the corner, when I was asked to make a masculine card for Joy's Life, I knew a fishing card was in order. Here's what I came up with:
I used the Joy's Life Pun in the sun stamps set for the "Best Fishes" sentiment on this card. Isn't it punny?
and, a bit of a side view so you can get the easel effect of this card. I cut the card out on my Silhouette. It made for a very easy easel card. The fish image came from the Silhouette store. It can be found here. I used some Distress Stickles in Forest Moss to make it look a little more like a Northern or a Musky. All paper is Close To My Heart. I used a Viva Décor Pearl Pen for the eye on the fish.
And, that's it for this card. Please check out my other post for today, too. I have a Print and Cut card for the Silhouette Challenges blog. Come play along with us! Win great prizes!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
