Design Divas OBG Blog Hop

It’s time for our Design Divas blog group “Oldies But Goodies” Blog hop where we have to use something that’s been in our stash for at least 6 months. Piece of cake – I have things I’ve had for 6+ years, let alone 6 months. If you came from Linda’s blog at The Stamper’s Touch you are on the right track. If you want to start at the beginning, go to Heather’s Coffee Break.

I made this card for my Father in Law for Father’s Day and have never posted it. My “Oldie but Goodie” is the little fishing bauble bumble bee. The image is “Mr. Brown on Vacation” from Phindy’s. I first saw it on Linda’s blog at Payne Holler Cards and I had to have it. This is the image of my Father-in-Law ~ it looks exactly like him. He has the same hat and the float tube and the moustache. He loved it and right away said “Hey, that’s me!!”

And on the inside – a gift certificate for Cabela’s…

From here you will visit Vicki at Bountiful Blessings to see some beautiful creation of hers

Take care friends and thanks for stopping by.

What a fabulous card for your FIL....or any guy. I'm sure he flipped over it. I love the subtle image of the fish stamped on the kraft over his head as he floats and relaxes.....you have a wonderful sense of humor.
