Meljen’s Designs – Gone Fishing

Father’s Day is creeping closer so I thought I would share the card I made for my Dad for Father’s Day. If you don’t remember this Fisher Moose image, Melissa made it in remembrance of her father who loved fishing. Since my dad is also an avid fisherman, I thought it would be perfect.

I thought this cute little sentiment sign, from Raindrop Echo Designs, is also perfect for my dad. He has a HUGE lawn and it seems like anytime I call him during the summer, if he is not fishing, he is riding his tractor, mowing the lawn.

Before I forget, the challenge this week is RED, WHITE, and BLUE. You can find all the details on the Meljen’s Designs blog. Since it is Thursday, Melissa is also releasing new digis. These images will be in the Whimsy Stamps store today.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great week end!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
