If you give a man a boat.....

he may just take you out in it - on Mother's Day!!!!! Even if it is very windy and not very sunny and somewhat I a sweet wife of what?!?! (Or perhaps a bit of a dufis...)

Don't you think that maybe I should get to choose the activity on Father's Day? Hmmm....what should I make him do....

Yes, there was definitely sacrifice involved - I would have loved to spend the afternoon scrapping or making cards, but he REALLY wanted to take out the new boat for the first time, so we made it a family affair. The deal was NO FISHING - since as you know, or maybe you don't, if a man starts fishing it is really difficult to get them to stop - even if they do not catch any fish!!! Thank goodness, we all agreed it was TOO COLD for fishing and so our trip out was short and we all lived to tell the tale! You can tell by the way Pickle Pants is attired here that it wasn't exactly balmy!

Well, I did manage to make him a card that is obviously appropriate. :) The theme over at Cupcake is "Boy oh Boy oh Boy" and they are looking for projects "For Dad" at Little Red Wagon, so I'll share mine today.

Do you see the shading around the edges of my image? This is the first time I've tried this so I'm not sure if I like it or not, but I think it is growing on me. It was fun to try something different. It is a pretty straighforward card and again is smallish in size as I geared the size to fit the image.

I have used Basic Grey papers from the Oliver collection once again.

Three cheers for making it half way through the week - weekend please come soon.....
