Gone Fishin' and some SWEET STUFF!!
Happy Friday to everyone and hopefully you are ready for a marvelous weekend. It is still so brutally HOT here in the mountains that about the only thing there is to do is to stay in and craft...what a shame, huh? haha But I hope you are enjoying your summer no matter where you may be!!
Today I wanted to show you a little boy card which is certainly not my forte but I think this little image is just so darn cute!! I used Little Jack and Bobbin Gone Fishin' from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps, stamped him on X-Press It and colored him with Copics and Promarkers! Check out that cute little puppy and those darling bare feet (thanks, Gunilla!)!!! They are definitely ready for a fun day!! The base of the card is Bazzill, the double matting is PTI, and the DP is from the EP Hello Summer paper pad. For the vertical I used a cream grosgrain topped with PTI satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow...and dangling today's catch on some hemp twine...the fish are actually buttons with the backs snipped off. I also added a Gone Fishin' button to the image panel.
The inside is very simple because I wanted to emphasize the fun, cheerful DP as well as the jotting spot with the fishing pole and wee fish (more buttons)! I hope you enjoy my little card this time!!
I have an extra one of these cute little Little Jack and Bobbin Gone Fishin' from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection illustrated by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps and would love to share it with one of you and you know I always include some surprises so he doesn't have to travel to you alone! So if you would like to be in for the draw, just leave your info with the Little Blue Froggy before Sunday morning, July 8, at 8 AM EST. It is not necessary to have a blog in order to join in...just skip over the URL request and you will be A-OK!! Good Luck, one and all!!
Thank you so very much for dropping by to see what's happening in my world and I hope you can visit me often! Remember SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious this weekend and until the next time, I send big hugs!!

I love this card,seems to cool the air a little bit.
Even here(Israel) it's so hot that I really prefer to stay at home without doing nothing (and that's because my muse has gone.

Such an adorable card!
Beautiful card! Thanks for a chance to win this cute stamp. :)
LOVE, Love, love this card! The colors are bright and cheery and your fishing details are spot on!
I make more fishing cards than any other...why??? because the hubs and I (now home from the hospital but very wobbly, and his walker never arrived ) are vendors at Fishing Flea markets in the late Autumn and winter, and he makes all the "fishing stuff" and I make "fishing cards, address books, journals, bookmarks etc. (I even do stamping on candles)
Granted, I have been searching for years now for DEEP SEA fishing images, and SURF fishing images...they are always fresh water. but most people still like what I make.
This little guys would make a great addition to my collection.
But as always i wish good luck for everyone! thanks for the opportunity to win him.
Love n hugs,
What an adorable image. Great coloring and layout. Love the little dangling fishes. Would love to have this stamp for my grandson.
A perfect image for a warm summer's day, "Gone Fishing!" I love the idea of snipping off the backs off buttons for your fish, and the rod/fish inside on our note spot is sweet too.
Thank you for sharing, and for the opportunity to win this adorable stamp!
