Happy Fathers Day LOTV

This past weekend we finally had some beautiful weather here in Oregon.  We bought a travel trailer recently and have been dying to take it out.  I however don't like to camp in the cold and rain, even inside a trailer.  Personally, I still like to sit by a fire and make smores.  I said I wasn't going to this time. You know, that forever quest to lose weight.  Well, I have been really good lately but, my daughter and her husband came and they brought the smore stuff and don't you know I caved!!  Oh yeah, back to the post.  So what does camping have to do with card making?  Well, I can't take along my copics (too much work) but I packed my prisma pencils, my oderless mineral spirits, some 6X6 paper pads, images to color, and went camping!!  I bought this darling image from Lily of the Valley specifically for some Father's Day cards. My husband has been playing the wii lately when I craft or browse blogs so when I saw this image I had to have it!!   This stamp is called Computer Fun, but I think it looks like the wii console we have.
The sentiment is from the Happy Circular Sentiments set.  I used a couple of different punches so that I could enter it into the Lily of the valley challenge this week.  I was thinking about doing a comparison with my copics but if I do that I may never get it uploaded!! LOL.  So one thing I want you to notice is his shorts! My husband wears camo shorts all the time! 
 I actually got 3 images colored while camping this weekend. How very peaceful to not have TV or a computer to steal my time!!  Thanks so much for stopping by. I love visitors!

I also am entering this card in the following challenges:
Here Come The Boys-fathers day
designed2delight-fathers day or manly cards w/o flowers

LOVE the card! I am always at a loss as to what to make when it's for a guy. Last year I made a card for Father's Day for my husband with tool stickers and sandpaper, but this year I'm stumped!
