Card for Dad and Family Reunion!

Hi Everyone, Hope your having a nice Summer day. So glad you stopped by today. I have a Card that I wanted to share with you. It's a Card that I made for my Dad. I always struggle with Cards for men. My Sister had this Stamp Set for Sale a while back and I had to have it because I new that it would be perfect for my Dad. My Dad Loves Vehicles and was a Cars Salesman for a long long time. So here is the Card that that I made him.

Also wanted to share a a few pictures of my Families Reunion that we had this past weekend.  We have this every year and we all have such a fun time getting together. Food, Games, Stories and Blue Grass Music. Just don't get any better than that. We are at a State Camp Ground. A lot of us Camp all week end long. I only went and visited during the day time. I don't do tents anymore. Wish I had a Camper. There were so many of the family that couldn't make it this year. One year it would be nice if we (ALL) could make it.
