Completed Fishing Creel Gift!

Okay! Here is the finished fishing creel project! I can't wait to add pictures and give this to my father-in-law!

The fish open to reveal photos, as does the can of worms. The fish tales book is a mini photo album.

I almost want to keep it for myself (except I don't fish)!

Father's Day Card

My dad really loves his horses. He raises them, trains them, trades them and takes really good care of them.

When I saw this stamp set at the Wilton tent sale yesterday, I knew I had to have it! They had acrylic stamp sets for $5.00 each! Couldn't pass it up!

Colors: Olive, Autumn Terracotta, New England Ivy, Black
Stamps: One of a Kind, Horses - Inkadinkadoo

Happy Birthday, Honey!

Today is my husband's birthday! He's away on a fishing trip, so I hope he's having a great day!

Fishing Creel Box

I'm making this box that holds a mini "fish tales" album, stringer of paper fish, paper bobbers and "can" of worms tag for my father-in-law for Father's Day. When I finish the other parts, I will post them.

I bought the pattern here.

My husband, daughter and father-in-law are on a fishing trip right now and promised to take a lot of pictures! I will also add a t-shirt that says "My grandchildren have me hook, line and sinker"
with embroidered fishing flies around it.

Colors: Brown Bag, Chocolate
Stamps: Eastertime, Chocolate Alpha Small, Simple Stitches
Accessories: Pewter brads, bobber, foliage, fishing net, twine
