Nothing says Happy Father's Day like an outhouse...

Hey yall. Weird title, huh? I just now made my daddy's Father's Day card and I actually made him an outhouse. Don't worry, I'll explain. My daddy likes outhouses. I can remember as a kid going to auctions with my parents. At one auction, daddy bid on and won a toilet paper holder shaped like an outhouse, complete with a moon cut out in the door. It's still in his bathroom. The other day we were talking about the camp he wants to build one day on his new lake lot. The one detail that stuck out to me was the bathroom door--it's gonna be made of wood strips and will feature a half moon cut out. I was playing around on Denise's Scrapbooking Room the other day and found an SVG file of the outhouse below. I made it into a card instead of just an outhouse. I didn't know how to fill in the star next to the moon, so I just glued that piece back on there.

I think he'll like it. I'm glad I waited to make his Father's Day card. I think this one will be more memorable than any other card I had running through my mind. Have a great Monday!
