Dad's Day

>> Thursday, June 25, 2009

Here is the card I made for Dad for Father's Day. I used a couple of retired stamps on this : Flannel Plaid (background, you can barely see it) and Fly Fishing -- but they are two of my favorites. I also used a new set called Oval All. The colors are Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue, and Chocolate Chip. I really like this color combo. I like the way it turned out.

I picked the fishing image because Dad REALLY loves to fish. I don't know if he's ever "fly fished", but I'm sure he's probably wanted to. He doesn't get to go fishin' much anymore. His health is just not what it used to be. But he still love to eat fish. I guess that's where I got my love of fish. I haven't met a fish I didn't like -- except that stupid catfish that finned my knee one summer when I was a teenager (thank you Brent...). Guess that's a story for another time. Oh well!

Anyway! I hope Dad had a good day. We (siblings) decided not to make Mom cook too much -- she hasn't been feeling well. But she DID cook more than she should have. We all brought food. Yummy! And we can't really have a get-together without Debbie's sugar-free banana pudding. YUM! She make is especially for Dad -- he's diabetic. I made Death by Cream Cheese. YUM also. Hmmm. Think I'll have a piece for my bday. Oh yeah. Happy birthday to me! (I'm not really ADD). Gotta go now. That DbCC is calling my name!
