GKD blog hop: Masculine


dad's day

Welcome to the Gina K monthly blog hop with the designers!  This month our theme is Masculine, how fitting since Father’s Day is just a few days away!! 

If you came from Cat’s, you're at the right place. If not make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.

I made this card to give to my Papasan (that is my nickname for DFIL), I am not even sure why I started calling him that so many years ago, but I will never forget the first time he called me and said “hey, it’s Papasan”, it made me smile and still does!  Cecil is his real name and he loves to fish when they go out to visit his brother & sister-in-law who live at the lake.  One of these days we plan to make a trip out there with them.  It’s been forever since I’ve fished!  I’m sure he’ll like this card, he usually appreciates them since he knows I make them special.   I used Theresa’s set Gone Fishing from last year, and tried to follow one of her gorgeous scene tutorials; I like how it turned out, but I think I went a little heavy on the shadow from the dock.  oh well!  Remember a few days ago I used Basic Grey’s Lauderdale papers and promised to show you the ‘masculine’ papers?  Well here they are – just perfect for a masculine feel, especially that ‘plaid’.  I used Jen Del Muro’s June sketch for my layout too. 

Head on over to Giovana’s blog to see what she's sharing with you today!

This is a great card and the fish have to have someplace to lurk - what better spot than in the shadow of the dock?! TFS
