Best Dad Ever

 What a beautiful day it was for Father's Day! We had such a nice time together w/ family and friends. These are the two cards i made for my DH and FIL. I got my inspiration from here...well i guess i pretty much CASED her! Thanks Carrie!

i loved how she used the scallop envelope die on her big shot!

 That wood grain background stamp sure is a nice one for masculine cards. adds just the right touch!
paper: love letter dsp, crumb cake, basic black, old olive, very vanilla
ink: basic black, old olive
stamps: trendy trees, whimsical words, best dad ever, wood grain
tools: big shot, scallop envelope die, circle punch, crop a dile, matte pack
accessories: black jumbo eyelets, stampin dimensionals, old olive ribbon, silver brads

 the Yankton dam is open almost ALL the way. someone said there is only 12 more inches to go before the gates are wide open. it's amazing. i never seen anything like it. quite scary actually. I had nightmares last night about my silly girls falling in! it was terrible. they wanted to be RIGHT on that edge and get drenched and sprayed w/ the HUGE waves.
 after a nice relaxing boat ride (we had to go slow and putt along as the river is floating w/ quite a bit of debris), we enjoyed some ice cream!

all boy.....all he wanted to do was 'steer' the boat....
