A little Catfish Humor


I found a new challenge that I love: the Dude Time Doodles Challenge. This week they have a image that they want you to use to create a great guy card and it is Moe from the Three Stooges. The image is free if you enter the challenge, and if you win you get a guest spot in the challenges. Isn't this the most hysterical image?

All the desigers use the funniest sentiments so I wanted to use something really great. I searched for Moe quotes from old movies and found this one. It is special to me because we have a large catfish pond in our back yard. I try to show my DH all my cards, but he isn't too interested in most of them; when I showed him this card, he perked up. He loves it. The Dude Time images are so great for making masculine cards. Thanks to Tammy and Kevin for pointing me to the challenge and the Dude Time company with their awesome creations.

I used an image from The Graphics Fairy for my bg (I distressed it up a bit). I cut out some die cuts using various Spellbinders oval dies, and shaded them with some Tim Holtz Linen Distress Ink and some SU! Chocolate Chip ink. I added some Bling and rope from Can You Digi It? and used a cast away fishing thingee as an extra little touch. I know my coloring is a bit off on this awesome image, but I had to hurry as I have to get to the hospital to see my Dad.

Keep my Dad and MIL in your prayers - neither are doing well.

Hugz to all!

  16. This is a fun card and the sentiment is great! My BFF loves the stooges too, especially Curly :)
    I scrolled back to see what's going on with your Dad and MIL, and I'm so sorry neither of them is doing well. That must be so hard to know they're both not feeling well. I'll keep them (and you) in my prayers and I wish you a good week ahead.

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
