Fishing is "The Life". . . .

at least that's what some men may think.  If you're like me though - craftin' is 'The Life'.  Each to their own I guess!
With today being an Oldie But Goodie Day at Bugaboo Stamps, I thought I'd share with you the Father's Day Card I made for my Father in Law. 

Since our camera was on the fritz just after Father's Day and we had a Photo Hostage crisis on our hands, I thought I'd share it with you now since the hostages are free.
My FIL is a BIG fisherman, so for any "DAD" holiday (father's day, birthday, etc.) I always try and have a card for him that involves fishing in some way shape or form.
This super cute Fisherman fit the bill for Father's Day (that was before the Gus Sports Collection came out, which will be next on the list to grace his birthday card cover).  =)
Okay, enough blah blah blah, here's the card for ya!  =)
Paper - Kraft, Bazzill & Fancy Pants Beach Line
Coloring - Copics
Tools - EK Success Bumpy Road Punch & Nesties
Extra STUFF - Flat Backed Gold brads (J's $1 Bin), Stickles, Twine & Dimensionals

Hope you have a swimmingly wonderful day!
Hugs & Happy Days!
