Those Who Bait
This month's muse is Joy Taylor at The CASE Study Blog - wowee, she is awesome. The card we are studying this week is so fun (check it out here). I love the colors on her card and the details are so crisp and clean. I am on a roll with masculine cards so I decided to go in that direction.
I used a free fishing sentiment from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely love, and I won the fish in the center of my rosette from Fresh Brewed Designs. The fish is part of the Huckleberry Pie goes fishing digi. I am also entering this card in the Fresh Brewed Blog Challenge FBC#99 which is to Pop It (make something that pops off your card to add dimension).
My papers are from SU! and from Hobby Lobby's Everyday Kraft Stack. I covered the little fish with Ranger Rock Candy Stickles and popped it up on a double tied baker's twine bow (thanks to Nancy Littrell for the twine - it was a sweet gift).
My family all loves to fish and we are sooo lucky to have a wonderful catfish pond in our back yard. My husband and his brother-in-law dug it out with a back-hoe about 4 years ago and a wonderful underground spring filled it in. My husband built a great deck with a hand pump for washing your hands and an automatic pump to keep air in the water. He stocked it with thousands of catfish, and they are starting to get big. Here is a picture of Allie fishing a few weeks ago.
The tomatoes in the picture are from my parent's garden - I had a wonderful bacon and tomato sandwich a few hours ago! Yum, Yum!!!!
