Missing My Dad

Good Morning,

Today I would like to show you a card I made for my dad.  He passed away last January and I have been missing him every time I go fishing.  There were two things I would talk to my dad about, fishing and dogs.  I have had this little digital stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs for awhile Huckleberry Pie Goes Fishing do you see that he has little angel wings on his back?  I like to imagine my dad fishing in heaven.  I also used the Washi Tape "Admit One" .

This is another 3-D swing card made on my Cameo Silhouette.

Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate your comments!

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
