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.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

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
