Father's Day Card for Grandpa

When I was growing up, my maternal grandparents were often my "babysitters".  My mom is the oldest of six, so there were always plenty of cousins around to play with.  My grandmother was a homemaker, and my grandfather retired when I was still in elementary school.  He was always active outdoors ~ raising sheep, gardening, fishing, camping, hunting mushrooms, and just tinkering around in the toolshed.

This card is to celebrate all that "outdoorsiness" even though, at the age of 89, he doesn't get to do much of that anymore.

Supplies used:
Hope you're having a wonderful, crafty weekend.  We're dodging raindrops here, which leaves plenty of craft time for me.
