For My Step-Father the Fisherman

Hi! How was your weekend? Mine was really good! I went to the Highland Games on Saturday. I stay in our booth too much to see any of the competitions, but I did hear some wonderful music, saw some beautiful works of art and crafts, and saw LOTS of men in kilts!

July has a lot of birthdays for my family. I know I've mentioned it before, but even though I make lots of cards I am terrible about getting them in the mail in time. I am determined to get things to everyone before their birthdays this month! So, my card today is for my step-dad, Don. He loves sports and fishing, so I had a hard time deciding whether to use Baseball Ian or Football Ian or Fisherman Ian (all The Greeting Farm) but since I used Baseball Ian (turned into a girl) for Mother's Day and it's more fishing weather than football weather I went with the Fisherman! (Also, I had this adorable paper from K&Co that I have been dying to use!)

The Details:

Stamp: Fisherman Ian (The Greeting Farm)
DP: K&Co
Cardstock: Stampin Up - Handsome Hunter, Kiwi Kiss, and Old Olive, plus Neenah White
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E21,E25,E27,E29
Clothes:E40,E43,E44, YG03,YG95,YG97,YG99, G05,G19,G29, C0,C1,C3

I hope this is the beginning of a fabulous week for you!
