Challenge Me Monday - #115 Father's Day

Happy Monday!!  I hope you had a nice weekend!!  It has been very warm in the midwest this weekend, which kept me indoors most of the time where I was able to get some things & projects done!  With it being is time for another Challenge Me Monday at Fantabulous Cricut!! :)

 #115 - Father's Day - Make a card using an outdoors theme; hunting, fishing, hiking, ect.

The project that I have to share today for the challenge is a card that I made for my dad for Father's Day.  My poor father was 'blessed' to only have I have always done things with my father that he would normally have done with a son, like building things whether that be a shed or furniture, fishing, watching sports. ect.  He even calls be Melvin, which I have come to expect and think is cute.  :)  The older we get, I have come to really appreciate the time that I have with my father, so while making this card, it brought a smile to my face while thinking back on memories of when we would go fishing together.  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
