Hello friends : ) I hope you are enjoying your Friday. I am posting this card in honor of my "poor hubby" who is hosting a Fishing Garage Sale today and tomorrow. He would most definitely rather be fishing than selling fishing tackle to men on their way to the lake but the garage is bulging so he decided it was time.
My wonderful husband and I love fishing together - he is the best friend I have ever had and the best person I have ever known!
Fishing lures for him is like papercraft supplies for me.... one difference you won't see me selling my stash at a garage sale! LOL
I actually made this card because I'm "teaching" a little card class to some very special friends this weekend. I was to create 3 - 4 different card designs and make up kits. We will actually just put them together at our gathering. The card makers are beginners so I needed simple designs : )
The fishing pole is a die cut from my old pal - Quic Kutz. Quick Kutz was the first die cutting tool I ever owned. I earned it by working for a friend of mine at her scrapbooking store while she attended CHA. I loved playing store for her while she was gone and earned hundreds of dollars in new product for my effort. Some years after that I found this fishing pole die and added it to my collection but I had never used it. I'm guessing I bought it 10 years ago! shameful! just shameful!!
HOWEVER! the good news is I can enter this card in Darnell's contest. You know Darnell right?? oh ladies! you need to meet this dear woman who will amuse and sometimes shock you! she if full of side splitting humor as well as being kind and sweet.
Check out her blog contest and be sure to follow her because you will not want to miss a single post from this witty and playful word artist (oh, and her cards are great too).
While hubby is spending the day swapping "fish stories" my peeps and I are heading tot he BIG city for shopping and eating and laughing and just plain fun!!
I'm offering some candy of my own! simply comment on this post for a chance to win my BLOG CANDY! See THIS POST for all the details.
I hope you enjoy your day!!
