Happy Father's Day!

Hello! I love the weekends! This one is a great one as we celebrate our dads. Here's the card I made for my Daddy. He really loves the cards I make and he was especially fond of one I made him for Father's Day a few years ago. He kept it on the fireplace mantle forever. That made me so happy. I wanted to make him this special card using Fishing Riley. He is an amazing fisherman and took my family on many camping & fishing trips. I really loved those trips and fishing with him. He was pretty patient, as I was a chatty little girl. You don't want to scare away the fish. Ok and my long hair did get caught in the reel once. LOL!I LOVE you Daddy! Don't forget that today is the last day for submissions for the Hanna Stamps Guest DT Call. Go here for all the details. Hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting! :) Rach

Great job! I am sure this will be special to your dad. I have some of the same memories fishing with my dad, me chattering away and him not catching as many fish when I was with him!
