Catching Zzzzz's



Do you have a fisherman in your house???  I am not a fisherwoman at all...in fact I do not even eat fish---so I would be the one shouting  "SAVE THE WORM"!!!!!  Yes,  I can be silly...

Today I am using the Catching Zzz's stamp by Art Impressions.  My Sweetie's Dad is a long time fishing guide, so this card is going in the mail to him...I am sure he will love it!

I used a simple layout, stamped the image in Memento Black ink and colored with copics.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and added a Silhouette cut file of a colorful little fishing lure on pop dots---just  to carry on with the fishing theme. I tried to stay with 'manly' colored cardstock of Old Olive and More Mustard, with a hint of red to tie in the bobber thingie. (can  you tell I have fished all of about 10 minutes in my life?)

Inspiration Emporium is now carrying Art Impressions stamps, and boy am I tickled, as I do LOVE these stamps! I know you will be seeing more of them over the next months!!!

Thanks for popping in today.  To peek at this stamp set in the Coming Soon Section (includes image and the sentiment as well) -just click HERE.

I DO have a fisherman in the house, and we spend the summers surrounded by more, so I make a lot of "fishy" cards - this guy is terrific - and so is your card.
You commented on my card - I had the answer buried in my description, and the answer to "you know what you're getting for your birthday...?" is.....OLD! I used the computer and a huge font.
Thanks for your comment.

hahahaha! That worm is the cutest, and I likely would be with you putting that worm back in my garden LOL I'm much too antsy to fish, tho I've been known (years ago) to sit in my husband's little "john boat" and read while he fished. It's a wonderful card and a delightful sentiment! LOL TFS, hugs, de

What a great card. This card says "ME"! I love to fish I guess that makes totally sense because I love the water! I don't remember this image from art impressions...it must be new. That lure is just tooo cute! It may be a CAS card but it shouts wonderful!

I have no fisherman here -- all this guy need is some water, a TV and a bottle of suds! Poor little worm.
