PDCC #134 & PP #98 ~ Gone Fishing!

What a gloomy day we've had, cloudy and on the chilly side. A good day to make a card or two. I'm getting one in just under the wire for the Play Date Cafe...pretty colors that I wanted to give a try. And The Paper Players has a summer theme going on, so this was a perfect match to get a two for one in today!

Summer fun for my men (hubby, son ~ most especially! and dad) is fishing, fishing and more fishing *wink*! I started with some sweet summer papers from Dear Lizzy and BasicGrey. I paired them up with my cute little fishing fella by Prima. I do think they had my son in mind when they designed this little guy! He sits atop two MFT die cuts. I paper pieced his sleeping bag. Now who wouldn't love a polka dot sleeping bag! Well...maybe the men. I threw in some twine, buttons and real fishing line for fun. And I fussy cut a few fishes (Stamps by Judith) to show this little guy had a good catch.


Thanks for visiting ~Lisa

Yeah, you found the time to play along! Great card, too! I totally love the dangling fish and your paper pieced sleeping bag! Very sweet, Lisa!

Awwww! THis image is so sweet, Lisa, as is that fun floral print. Reminds me of the 70s, in a GOOD way. :) I had a Barbie camper and stickers came with it to decorate the camper. Those stickers looked a lot like this paper! THanks for the memories, Lisa. :)

And so glad you linked up with us at The CAfe, too!

Very cute, Lisa! The colors are perfect for a summery, gone fishin' card! I like how you grouped your embellishments and sentiment, and the long, horizontal twine "lure."
