Hooked on Fishing

Today is Duane's sister Trudy's birthday. And boy does she love to fish! Even more than Duane. I bought this stamp set a few years back becuase it works perfect for so many people in our families who love fishing!

This card turned out just the way I wanted it to. Originally I was going to sew on the card instead of use ribbon, but found I didn't have any brown thread. Ribbon works well in the space! The Mellow moss layer is dry embossed through my Big Shot which gives great dimension.

Here is a close up of the card. You can sorta see the dots on the Moss layer. Also - what do you think of the clip next to the fly? Kinda like a fish hook, right? (Remember they are on sale through Sunday if you want to get any.) Came together quite nicely, and hope she likes it.

Happy Birthday Trudy!

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Double the thank-yous

These are the thank-you cards I made for Lyns to go in the gift bag you saw on Saturday. She requested that I make her thank-you's for her shower gift, as she will have lots of thank-yous to mail out!!!

I made her a set of pink and a set of blue in honor of her baby girl and baby boy!! This is a great way to make a simple, yet stunning card with all that DSP that you are hoarding. (I do it too, its okay to admit it).

Stamp Set: Family Phrases
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Pink Pirouette (retired), Pink Pirouette DSP (retired), Whisper White
