5 Reasons to Love the Butterfly Gala Bundle!
2019 Occasions Catalog Framelit Measurements

Best Catch for the Men in Your Life!

Before I get to today's card, here's an update on my product shares:

ALL paid reservations for product shares were mailed today.  There was one backorder item, the Early Bird Bonus Memories & More Happiness Blooms sampler (that's a mouthful).  If your package doesn't include it, there should be a note that explains that your bonus will ship separately sometime early February (they are currently on backorder until Jan 31st)

I will be doing one last round (#2).  If you want to get in on it, you must place your reservation & pay by Jan 23.  Offerings can be found on my product share page.


Today's card is for the Man in Your Life!  

As soon as I saw pg 44 of 2019 Occasions Catalog, I knew I had to have everything on that page!  Best Catch Bundle and Crackle Paint:

Why?  Because my hubby loves to fish.  He does more traditional fishing like walleye, bass, perch, northerns, etc, but he can appreciate fly fishing. 

He loved the card and was impressed with my coloring skills (which he thought had improved).  I didn't tell him that was because I used Stampin' Blends.  Truly, they make you feel like an artist (at least for me).  Which is why I love my Stampin' Blends!

Cool stuff:

  • For coloring options, I googled "trout" and "fly fishing lures" and found LOTS of great inspiration.
  • You can't see it in the photo, but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the "pink" area of the fish, for even more coolness!
  • I felt like the card needed a little something, so that's when I decided to add a small amount Silver Metallic Thread to the lure (my hubby thought I was a genius for that!).
  • I was delightfully surprised to discover that a couple of the fish's fins lift up...what fun!  (see below)
