Paper Players Challenge #1



My husband and I dearly LOVE to fish! I mean, we would fish every day of the week if we could (I usually catch the bigger one however)! Last year, he had some major health problems and we just haven't gotten to go fishing - in like a year! It appears that he may be having more health problems now and since we can't physically GO fishing, I thought I'd make him this little card just to let him know that we WILL be able to go again soon.


This is for Paper Players Challenge #1. Go check out their site, HERE. The theme is to create something masculine so I think this is a good choice (even though it can be for a female too!).


The paper I used was Ballet Blue (oh, I'm going to miss this one!), Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, White and Pawisitively from SU. The image is a digital stamp from Hambo and the sentiment "Fishing" is from a CTMH set called Hook, Line, and Sinker. I covered the "water" with Liquid Glass (CTMH) and colored the image with Copics, SU Markers, and chalk. The fish brads are some I had in my stash and just cannot remember where I got them.


Thanks for stopping by.............

Lynn, I hope you will both be able to go fishing soon. In the meantime, this card is a great way to remind him of what it means to both of you. Your coloring is a masterpiece. I love the paper piercing along the edges, too. The fish brads are adorable! As usual, a fabulous card with lots of wonderful interest, and designed with love. I always enjoy coming to your blog and ooohing and aahing at your cards.
Big hugs, my friend. Thoughts and prayers for your DH.

Sorry to hear about your hubby's health problems. This will definitely cheer him up. My dad is a HUGE fisherman too. I have to get working on his father's day card w/ a fishing theme. I love Hambo stamps. Haven't bought any (yet) but I do love them!!

What a cute card. Your blog is very nice. I cam over from the Splitcoaster site per your invite.
I hope you guys can go fishing this year or perhaps just drive down to the old fishing hole and talk to some of the people you used to hang out with.
