Teach a Man to Fish...

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

Today begins a new challenge over at the Catch the Bug challenge and inspiration blog with a 'Masculine' theme. perfect for those upcoming Father's Day cards or any others you might want to send along to the guys in your life! :)

**the watermark I've been given by Bugaboo is the little lady in the car. 
it is NOT part of the card.**

I am using the hysterical 'Gus Fishing' image on my card today. he just cracks me up!  I'll be sending this card off to our son, Mick, when he returns from his school trip to Canada. he loves to go on fishing trips with his friends, so I know he'll get a kick out of it. :)

papers are from the Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather collection, fish die is a retired one from Whimsy Stamps, little snippets of brown gingham ribbon & natural cotton ribbon are  from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons are from my vintage stash. a piece of torn cardboard was inked and added below punched sentiment. crystal effects was added to his glasses.

thanks so much for stopping by! enjoy your weekend! we are off to a big antiques market at our local county fairgrounds today.

Hi Jennifer, I love this cute card and the sentiment is funny, but true.
I haven't seen you for a while, in blog land, anyway. Good to see you. Thank you for joining us for the QKR Stampede challenge. Good luck.
