I imagine the Bella stamps are not the first thing you would think of to use for making a card for your dad. However, my dad is quite special (but I suppose, all Daddy's are special to their little girls!!) My dad taught me to fish when I was 5 years old, and we continued to fish for YEARS. I mean some days in high school during spring...we would hop in the car as soon as school let out and drive an hour to hit our favorite fishing spot. We liked brook fishing. You know, I make cards for that whole "instant gratification" thing...same with Brook fishing. Fishing in a lake takes WAY too long, and an ocean?? Sorry, I'll take 10, 7 inch fish in an hour over 1, 200 pound fish in a weekend any day.
So, the Bella that made me place my first order was Stacyfishabella. I think she should be called Janafishabella, because if you think about it, I've been fishing for 31 years now!! And who is this Stacy chick anyway? Sorry Emily if you're reading this...you'll have to tell me who she is!!
The other thing about this card that I'm excited about is the faux woodgrain technique I used. I read Gina K.'s blog daily, and she had a link to this awesome video tutorial she created on this technique one day - and I HAD to try it! I loved watching the video because it really helped. I think I pushed a little too hard with the craft white pad, but it turned out ok. I'll have to practice more though.

The "looks just like you" is unfortunately not true (I wish!) Thanks mom!
