Father's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Father's Day" Blog Hop!  

We're so happy you could join us today to honor Fathers, Brothers, Sons, Uncles or any other man who has been a great influence in our lives!

 I am the first stop on the hop!  I can't wait for you to see what great projects these awesome ladies have created!  

In addition to seeing a lot of awesome projects, there is some blog candy available too.  Miranda will be giving away a Michael’s or JoAnn's gift card (winner's choice).  To be eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the hop and leave a comment!  

The winner will be announced Wednesday, June 19th here on my blog! 

Let me tell you a little about my Dad or Daddy as I call him. He is an awesome Daddy, very loving and caring.  Always there when I need him most!  Just a great all around guy! Here is a pic of my Dad and I when I was a little girl: 

This is how I remember us!  Always cuddled up!  I have to admit, I can't cuddle with him like that anymore I seemed to have grown a bit too big.  LOL  But I still get my hugs in!

My Daddy is a commercial fisherman from South Louisiana so when I saw this stamp from My Daily Bread, I knew it would make the perfect Father's Day card or him!  

I colored the image with my pencil colors.  The image brings me back to my childhood when we spent countless hours in the Gulf trawling, or as some say shrimping! 

And the inside.  I cut the wheel and anchor from Life's A Beach Cricut Cartridge.  

Happy Father's Day to all you Awesome Dads out there!
