Bear Fishing

Isn't this such a sweet image? I was really cheeky a few weeks ago and asked Debbie (I'd seen her use the image on an Oldie But A Goodie challenge) if she'd stamp me a few as it was perfect for a card I'd been asked to make. It will be from a little boy to his Grandad on his 60th Birthday and he likes sailing boats!

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and all the papers are from the Polkadoodle download Fathers Day. The brads are from my stash and I've added a computer generated sentiment. A little bit of faux stitching around the edges and the card is complete!

I promise Debbie that I'll send you some images in the post in return - just not done any stamping recently. So sorry its taken so long to return the good favour!

I've used the Pollycraft sketch for inspiration and would also like to enter the following challenges:

Card Makin' Mama's: Birthday Cards

Crafting For All Seasons: Beach / Ocean
Deep Ocean Challenge: Deep Ocean

  • Image: Unknown - sent to me by Debbie
  • Papers: Fathers Day download from Polkadoodles
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Everything else: My stash
