I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend. It is very HOT out there....they tell us tomorrow evening we may see.......or should I say hear some thunder boomers.......hopefully it will wait til the fireworks are over. However you celebrate make sure to have fun and stay safe!
I made this card for little nephew's birthday and thought it would be a perfect post being that so many are heading to the lake for camping and fishing this weekend.
I used this adorable little stamp from High Hopes called Time Well Spent. I used my copics to color the image and applied some crystal lacquer to the water to give it a 'wet' appearance. Don't these two just look like they are having the best time?
I added a real fish hook to the card.....had the hubby remove the sharp barb.....this leads me to a kinda funny story about when I went to our little local hardware store to buy them......the nice gentleman asked me if I needed any help.....I replied that I think I found what I needed....I was looking at the size and color of the metal.....he said well maybe if I knew what kind of fish are you fishing for?.....I told him I wasn't going fishing with them.....he looked at me with a puzzled look and said well what are going to do with fish hooks then?.....I said "Oh if I tell you...you will think I am crazy"....well then I thought that didn't sound so good either.....so I told him I make cards and was going to use them as an embellishment on a card I am making with fish on it.....he told me he didn't think I was crazy....but he still looked a little puzzled so I'm not so sure!
Here's a closer looksie at the image
This is an easel card so here is the inside....the little fish on the pop up is off of a Penny Black stamp with Hedgehogs Fishing.
Hope you enjoyed my card....oh I love reading your sweet comments!
Enjoy the weekend everyone! We are going to my Mom and Dad's for a family cookout.....yummmm can't wait!!
