Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there! My Dad passed away 12 years ago, and I take this as a day to remember all the things he did for me.

I wanted to make a card for my Husband because he is such a great Dad to our Girls. He has been mentioning quite a bit that he wants to get into pack rafting... It is rafting in a small floatable blow up boat that is very light and is used while backpacking and hiking. We are good with it as long as he gets us girls one in pink!
I made the oar extra big because he told me he already bought the oar, now he just needed the boat! 

Man and boat from Going Places ( I hand cut off the fishing pole)
The boat oar is actually a broom cut from Mini Monsters

  6. This is ADORABLE!!! LOVING that background paper and loveeeeeeeeeeee the oar!!!

  7. My hubby wants a boat right now too, but NOT one you have to paddle. LOL This is a great card especially since it has a special meaning to your hubby. Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Kraft Journal!

  8. Pack rafting sounds like fun... But it's a blow up boat - yikes...
    I'm sure if the waters are calm and can hold up a male's weight than it's considered okay.
    Well looks like hubby will be getting his boat soon since his already got the oars....
    Awesome card!

  9. Sounds fun...great card! Lee-Ann :)
