Today I'm showcasing Fisherman Luka....isn't he adorable?!?! I knew when I saw him that I wanted to make a Father's Day set with a card and tackle box. When my dad was alive, one of his favorite past-times was fishing. I remember when we were little, he would take the family to the lake and try to teach us to fish. I didn't touch the worms or any other live bait...ewww, gross! But, I loved casting the line and the act of catching a fish. I also didn't mess with the fish when I reeled him in, LOL! I had to call dad over to get the fish off the line and hook up some new bait. Poor guy.....so much for his relaxing day of stress-free fishing, right?!?!
On to my Father's Day card and tackle box (you can see the recipe at the bottom of my post):
Here's a closeup of Luka (colored with Copics & chalk):

Here are some pics of the tackle box with gummy worms, hee, hee. You can purchase the instructions here. It looks big, but it's only about 4x6 inches and 3 inches tall. My card is 6x6 so you can see the size comparison.
