Fish Whisperer

Good morning!  I was looking through the challenge list at Feline Playful and decided I would make a "man card" with the Bugaboo sketch.  Then I had the great idea of doing a bit of shopping at Bugaboo...they have such fun stamps...there really is something for everyone!

I printed Gus,colored him with pencils, and cut him out with a Spellbinder's die.  The papers are distressed and I added some brads for embellishing.  As I was making this, my husband asked if I was making it for our electrician who just retired and moved up north so he could fish.  Great idea...this one's for Bill!

Image/Sentiment: Bugaboo Stamps Digis
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, and Always Artichoke, Bella Blvd. DP
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Clear it Out: Use old supplies, brads or eyelets: also Father's Day/Man
Crafting for all Seasons: For Man
The Crafty Pad: Let's Hear it For the Boys
The Pink Elephant: Masculine
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Anything Goes
Stella Says Sketch: Sketch Challenge

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow featuring new sets from Clear Dollas Stamps....
