Freshly Made Sketches #39

Yee-haw!  Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!

My card today is a special one - it's the one I sent to my dad for Father's Day.  Kinda silly for a 78 year old man, right?  Actually, I think it's just perfect.  When I saw this stamp set from Paper Smooches, it immediately brought back a lot of memories - my dad was a farmer until I was about 6 or 7 and stayed in the farming business until he retired.  I don't remember my dad ever wearing a hat like that, but I do remember the overalls and the farm life.

This cute stamp set is called Green Acres - I know you older bloggers remember that TV show, with Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor.  I think it's on the TV Land channel now.  I so remember the family sitting around the TV and watching Green Acres.

So, you see, I just couldn't resist making my dad a card using this stamp set.  And, of course, I had to use a Freshly Made Sketch.  Sketch #39 is hosted by the awesome talented Jen Mitchell and is just perfect for this Father's Day card.

Be sure to check out the other DT creations at Freshly Made Sketches this week and play along with us.  I'd love to see your take on this sketch!
