Go Fish!!

Starting off today with a Father's Day card for all those fishing guys out there.  I can't say I understand the appeal of fishing - I'd be happy to sit on a river bank on a gloriously sunny day with a great book and a chilled bottle of vino but you wouldn't catch me sitting there if there was the slightest chance of inclement weather!!  Maybe it's a chance to get away for those who do it..........................we won't delve too deeply into what they're trying to get away from though :)

Anyway, on to the card which I made using a digi from craftsuprint - they have a good selection of men digis to use - and I followed the sketch from this week's mojo monday challenge.  I kept it simple, trying to avoid the frou-frou !



I would also like to enter this into the following challenges -


Thanks for taking the time to stop and take a look :)

So you are on the right track - get some wine, a book, and a fishing pole! Then you can enjoy fishing and other things you love to do all at the same time. This image is great and the card is super fun. Wonderful!!!
