My husband has often hunted with friends up north and every time he goes there their daughter gives up her bedroom for 'old man Gerry' as she has called him affectionately for years. He asked me today to make up a thank-you card and he would send her a little gift.She is now in her teens and loves to hunt so I dressed the hunter image in pink when in actuality she wears regular hunting clothes, This weeks Bugaboo freebie was perfect for my card.. It was the least I could do as I love the meat and accept it gladly but I am no hunter!
