Best Catch for Father’s Day

Mother’s Day has come and gone — it’s time to think about our Father’s Day cards.  I have a great stamp set for you — Best Catch and there’s coordinating framelits to help cut out the pieces.  I had a blast with this set and it definitely makes me think of my dad and my father-in-law.

When I was growing up, we went up to Hurley, Wisconsin almost every weekend in the summer to fish.  My dad would get up really early and go out in the boat fishing as the sun came up.  He would fish until mid-morning and then come back to the campground for the day.  He would take the rest of us out in the boat in late afternoon to fish.  We have some great family memories from these trips.

Best Catch Stamp Set, Catch of the Day Framelits, Father's Day, Masculine, Stamp with Peggy
I kept my color palette simply with Night of Navy and Sahara Sand.  The Crackle background stamp gave me that worn pier look.  Don’t you love the fishing hat and basket — the framelits make it quick and easy to cut these out.

The Weather — that’s all we talk about

The weather — it seems that’s all we talk about lately.  Who’s ready for summer temps and the beach?  I have a warm weather card for you today.  I’ve been working with the stamp sets that are retiring soon and Beach Happy is one set I haven’t used very much.  I cased this card from my sister, Tina, with just some small adjustments.  As you probably know by now, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay are my favorite colors.  They work perfect for this card along with Calypso Coral, definitely summer here.

 

Beach Happy Stamp Set, Seaside Embossing Folder, Retiring List, Summer, Beach, Stamp with Peggy
The Seaside Embossing Folder gives the look of waves on the Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Don’t you just love the stripes on the beach chair.  I used Stampin’ Blends to color the umbrella — outline each section with the darker and color in with the lighter color.  Wishing You Sunny Days is a perfect greeting these days — we’ve have a lot of gloom and rain in the Midwest.

Here’s hoping to change the weather talk to lots of sunshine and warmer temps.

She is the most amazing woman I know.
There is no one more caring, kind and loving in the world than mom.
She is always there for me and my siblings, her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
