A "Fishy" Birthday and a Challenge Reminder

Hi everyone!

Today is my father-in-laws birthday and to celebrate we had him and my mother-in-law over for his favorite meal~pizza and ice cream cake :)

We couldn't just give him his birthday present without a card so my oldest son and I made this card for him
He is a big fisherman~ spending every night out on the water when they are down at their cottage.
He loves to then come and tell my boys all his fish stories which they LOVE!!
He even said if he catches the "BIG" one it will be mounted and hung in the cottage.
To help along with his fishing of course we bought him some more gear.
Hey you never know right?!?!

Well my card is made with all scraps :)
The fish is from Create a Critter and he is on an Action Wobble
I did add some coral in the background which is kinda hard to see all of it in the picture and I had these clear gems that I added to look like bubbles.
Of course I used my gel pen~~I swear I can not live without it!!

We had a blast making this together and "Bajah"~ what my kids call their grandfather  loved his card.

Thats all I have for tonight but before I go please make sure you go over and visit Karen over at
Karen-Kakes-Krafts..... she is having a LO challenge that is only open for a few more days.
The prize~~ a your story bundle :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT night :)

  5. Hey Jess, I LOVE the card!!! I love when you can use scraps for thing!! I "try" to make a card after every project, while it is still all over the table, floor, or stuck to either of my dogs. you know that the paper and ribbon, ect. are all going to match, so whip out a card or two with the extra! Great Job again Jess, Karen♥
