Happy Father's Day

Hello Friends! Happy Father's Day! I wanted to share the card I made for my girls to give their dad. My husband is not a hunter, but he loves the outdoors and nature. It's kind of a joke that I would make him a card featuring a duck. We've had a terrible time this year with ducks in our swimming pool. They are driving him and our dog crazy!!

I used my Pond Life stamp set again. I just love it! It has so many great images to make masculine cards. This duck is one of my favorites.

And here is a little peek at the inside...

Oh my, ducks in the pool?! Not fun. (Possum aren't fun either, ask my dad). But a duck on the front of your card is terrific, that is for sure. He looks great and so do your clouds. As my girl now says, it's "awesome sauce." *Ü*

Great card! I love the duck image. And the inside is perfect - fantastic colors. I know your husband will enjoy the card :)

Handsome card!Great colors and image! I love how you created the inside, and the story behind this card!

On another note, I have been trying to avoid purchasing that deckle-edged die, but seeing all that you have been creating with it is making it hard to resist!TFS

This is awesome!!! I love your inside. I have such a tough time with them. I also like how you popped the duck off the front of the card. So cute!!
