Father's Day 2012

I made this card for my son to give to his Dad for Father's Day. There is something about Gus that reminds of my lovable hubby, maybe just the knobby knees:O).  My hubby  has been hunting since he was twelve and he lives for hunting season. He thinks it is mostly about being outdoors that he loves. I'm not a hunter nor is our son, I have absolutely zero interest in it   but I do love to cook up a moose stew or roast a wild goose. We eat a lot of game! I had to make a stew out of beef last winter( we had run out of wild meat), it had been years since I had  to do that. Couldn't believe the cost:O).I know a lot of people do not approves of hunting but really nothing goes to waste in our group!

  8. Fantastic card, Glenda! You really made it the "Great Outdoors" ! My dad was a hunter and in his family back when he was a boy, if hunting didn't bring meat to the table, the family would starve by late winter. He was the middle one of 13 children so you can imagine what it took to feed 15 people all winter long.

  9. Love this card, Glenda, he really looks like he's out in the woods!
    Hugs Jo x
