Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there! My DH is mowing the lawn right now but we're headed to town in a little while to visit Eric's dad and go swimming. Then we'll head back home and visit my dad later today. I am so thankful that my husband is such a wonderful father to my two reds. And I am also thankful that Eric and I have our dads around still. My dad is recovering from shoulder surgery and Eric's dad has just been diagnosed with diabetes. So more than ever, we are thankful to have them in our lives.......and it's an extra good time to spend quality time with them. I think any dad would say that the best gift is time well spent with loved ones.
On to today's post.....go figure I stamped Happy Birthday on this card. But I already had my Father's Day cards made a few weeks ago. But I wanted to show you Karen Lockhart's Fishing Vest stamp. It's so wonderful for those fishermen....and fisherwomen!..... in your family. I paired my Copic colored image with some Cosmo Cricket patterned paper. Who knew giant polka dots could look so manly!
And here's some photos of the first big fishing venture this summer. My husband took Josey and my nephew Mitchell fishing and they caught a nice little mess of bass. Notice our fancy method for cleaning fish.....two buckets and an old board. Extra sanitary, right!!!?? Here's the little mess of bass. Not very big ones but they made nice little fillets.
Here's the gang with their catch. I'm kinda giggling because these fish are not anywhere near the monster fish these guys have caught over the years. But I'll take 'em cuz they're soooo good all fried up!
Well, it's time for me to get ready........don't want to keep the man of the day waiting too long. Have a great day everyone!!
