Nautical Dad {Paper Smooches}, Ribbon Carousel and Moxie Fab Gift Card Holder

Today is Mother's Day and I am making a Father's Day project!! I was inspired to play along with the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, it is a nautical theme.

The $5 gift card was in my hubby's wallet and it is not what I will be giving to my father in-law but I wanted to show how I would attach a gift card. In its place will be a Tim Horton's coffee card...oh yeah...he loves his Tims! 

I also wanted to play along with Moxie Fab's 350 Cards & Gifts Week: The Gift Card Holder Challenge again and  The Ribbon Carousel (Celebration).

I used the Paper Smooches set called "Space Cadet"...the sentiment and the stars are from that set and I knew it would be perfect for my father inlaw as he is on our Croghan Crew when we are on the boat!! Both he and my hubby LOVE to go fishing!

Here he is, the proud fisherman from last weekend!! He is SUCH a character! LOL! First catch of the season. I just adore this fella...look at that happy face.


  1. absolutely wonderful Lesley! Love the polkas and nautical theme!

  2. this is wonderful Lesley - I just love the colors and what a neat way to give him a gift card.

    Your father-in-law does look like a happy man to be around and that is a true blessing !!! My dad was the same and always made us smile.

  3. Another great gift card holder! Your FIL has a wonderful smile!

  9. That chunky rope is perfect for your nautical creation! The polka-dots are so fun ... wouldn't have thought to put them with nautical, but they indeed go so well! Very smart, Lesley.
