Father's Day Card

I haven't been around the last while because we are on holidays. I just thought I'd drop in for a bit to share the father's day card I made for my hubby. I did not have very much time to make this card with him around. I thought I could work on it a bit while we were out camping.. but no way...I have no idea what I was thinking in that regard....... Anyway I made it and gave it to him yesterday...better a little late than never....right?

We have a few more weeks of holidays and are off to Clear Lake Manitoba Thursday morning. We spent the last week travelling and camping in our Okanogan (it is a old large yellow camper van) We call it "The Beast" because it is such a gas guzzler. We bought "The Beast" a few years ago from my husbands parents. They had it sitting for years in their yard not being used. It was in pretty sad shape cause it leaked through the vents all that time. DH fixed it up with the guidance of a fella he knew that fixed old campers. I made curtains and cushion covers and we have been good to go. I really enjoy going out in it because we can make our own meals in it...simple meals but better for us than eating out all the time......Well enough for now..

Here's the Father's Day Card....

Another beautiful card. Well worth the 2 week wait! I love that Father's Day paper; I almost bought some when I first saw it, but decided I needed to use my scraps first. Your card makes me want to go out and buy it and prepare cards for next year!
