Father's Day Fishing

Before you know it, Father's Day will be here. My dad has been gone to be with the Lord for quite a while, but I have a son, son-in-law, and wonderful hubby who deserve to be recognized and encouraged!  Here's a Father's Day card I made with a great digi from Clearly Digi Stamps called "Gone Fishing."   My oldest daughter's husband LOVES to go fishing. I understand his passion. My parents let me go fishing after 10 pm at night -  alone at a river near our house, after hiking through the woods. I caught a large catfish and went home. I can't imagine letting any 12-year-old doing that in this day and age. I've always seemed to have busy guardian angels!

I used this great sketch #79 from Papertake Weekly:

I colored my image with Copic Markers to match the Echo Park "ruler" paper, which I thought was perfect for fish tales like "it was this long!"

Thanks for visiting! I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge #145 - Outdoor Fun
