Father's Day Bog Hop

Welcome to My Dad's the Greatest Blog Hop. Today we are honoring our Husbands, Dads, Grand Fathers, Uncles, and Big Brothers... Who ever made a significant, loving mark in your life? Do you remember your father being so big in your eyes, that he could protect you from anything? He was the one who would barbecue or mow the grass. He would go off to work every day and come home tired and still make time to laugh and play. He didn't mind that every Father's Day, he got a tie or slippers. He was our protector!!

Today we have some wonderful, talented women who would like to show that their Dad is the Greatest!! In case you get lost the hop starts at Pamela ~ 

  1. Pamela ~ 
  2. Colleen ~ 
  3. Miriam ~ 
  4. Kristy ~ 
  5. Nancy ~ 
  6. Ana Maria ~ 
    7.  Jaime ~ 

We will have Blog Candy!!! It’s a fun stamp set from Tim Holtz “Life’s a Journey” to one lucky winner that leaves a comment on every blog.

If you arrived from Jamie, then you are on the right track.

For this hop, I decided to use my Chomas Creations Pen Holder and my newest favorite crafting tool, the sharpie liquid pencil, OMG that pen is a must along with your Chomas pen holder, look at all the details on this sketch!!! All drawn with the sharpie liquid pen.

Also, I wanted to give this card dimension since it was a sketch and since I had some scrap sketches from my previous try outs of this one, I cut the fishing pole and used some Trendy Twine for the fishing string. My husband loves fishing and this card is going to be perfect for him, especially when he sees the sentiment I drew for the inside part.

The files and supplies I used are:

Kraft paper
Fishing Scene
Chomas Pen Holder *the sharpie pencil is too small to fit inside the Chomas pen holder but I took it apart and inserted the inside barrel and it worked perfectly, as you can see on this picture, or you can buy the marker holder to make it easier ;)

Thanks for stopping by. Now I must send you to Eileen to see what fabulous project she has in store for you!

Don’t forget, to qualify for the grand prize, you must leave a comment on all the blogs in the hop.

Happy Hopping!!
