A Fishing We Will Go




It's Summer time, and Father's Day is just around the corner! What a perfect time to celebrate both! This weather is perfect for fishing, and this card reminds me of how my dad used to love to fish when we were younger. He'd take us all to the lake with him. I can still remember the first time I cast my line and it went in the tree. Dad had to climb up there and get it out. I still think of fishing when I think of summer, but I admit that I'd prefer not to bait my own hook! LOL

My dad is one of the strongest and most awesome people I know. He's my hero, like in the song, "Wind Beneath My Wings." I love you,dad! :)

For this card, I have used the Sketch at Critter challenge. The image is from Dustin Pike (Doodle Dragon Studios). The new background paper is from my recent trip to Hobby Lobby. (What can I say, I love paper almost as much as I love punches!) I spent some time cleaning out closets and sorting old clothes today, and found this green shirt with these buttons on it... And I thought they would be The perfect color for this card. (I don't know why I ever bought a green top anyway, since I've never really liked green.) Might as well recycle! The circle with the sentiment is punched using a circle punch from Marvy, and pop dotted for dimension. The green shape behind it is made with photo corners punched with an EK Success photo corner punch.

I almost forgot to add that I colored this image with my new Promarkers! Wow! I am loving these markers soooo soooo sooo much! I'm already ordering more colors!
