Best Fishes on Your Birthday

Happy Saturday!!! I'm so glad the weekend is here. Here in Texas we had 80 degree weather yesterday, but today we have gusting winds and we won't get out of the 50s. Oh my...the joys of Texas life!!! LOL!

I guess if you were a die hard fisherman you'd go fishing in gusting winds and 50 degree temperatures, but not me....I'm staying in and making cards!!! LOL!!! I made this card for one of my guy cousins that is an outdoors man. I think he'll like it.
I used some DCWV glitter stack paper for the fish and the medallion. The fish are from the Wild Card cartridge and the medallion was made using my Nesties. I printed the sentiment from the computer.
I stitched around the cute blue checkered paper that I downloaded from the Raspberry Road Designs site from a kit called Daisy Dew. If you haven't visited Raspberry Road Designs yet, be sure to go see them...they have LOTS of freebies!!!! I also used a bit of jute to act as the stringer holding the fish.
I used my Prussian Blue cats eye ink to highlight the details in the fish and lastly added a few rhinestones to finish the whole thing off.
That's all for me today....I will be putting away my Christmas decorations this morning and then after I'm finished there, I'll get right to card making!! What do you have planned for today?
Thanks for coming by to see me today. Please join me again tomorrow for more card FUN! HUGS!!!

Pin It!

Darling DeeDee! I keep seeing more and more great cuts on Wildcard. How fun! I shouldn't be blog hoppiing with company coming for dinner. We're celebrating Christmas because they always go away for the holidays and this is the first time we're all free. Good excuse to keep my decorations up. LOL (As if I need an excuse) xxD

Oh, DeeDee, 50 degrees sounds delightful as I sit in my house with tons of snow outside! We have below zero temps forecasted in a few days. *SIGH* Oh yes, back to your card! It's wonderful! Masculine and cute at the same time! I love it!
