A Fish Tale for Ian!

Happy Monday everyone!!

First I want to thank everyone for their kind comments about my situation yesterday. I didn't want to give too many details because of the TMI factor!! I should have given blog candy for the first person to leave a comment telling me what kind of testing I was supposed to have this morning!!! LOL I was supposed to have a colonoscopy this morning but it didn't work out!! You can read the previous post for all the details.

Today I have an adorable Ian from the Rock the Farm Set over at The Greeting Farm to share with you today. I was supposed to have this entered into the sketch contest but I didn't quite make it. But I love my card anyway so I wanted to go ahead and post it. I will probably give this to my hubby. He loves to fish and this will be perfect for him.

I started out by stamping Ian onto white cardstock and coloring him with my copics. I chalked a little around the edges of the Ian rectangle and the circle. Look at the little tiny googly eye on the fish!! Is this not adorable? (see next photo for better look). I cut him out and matted him onto blue paper and placed him onto the card front with pop dots. The paper on the card front is Chatterbox. I cut a cute little circle with my nesties and put my little "gone fishin" button on with a glue dot. This is the cutest button ever and perfect with my little fisherman!! I finished off with a cute strip of Bo-Bunny ribbon tied in a knot.

You know you should never leave the inside of your card naked!! LOL so I cut a piece of white card stock and stamped my sentiment from the Rock the Farm set. I also stamped just the little fishes from the Ian stamp and the two heart flowers in the corners (also from the set). I colored all of this in with my copics.

I really like how this card turned out. I think DH will love it as well. What do you think?? Please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I love to read the comments and appreciate every single one of you that takes time to stop by my blog to check it out. I will continue to provide you with lots of inspiration (hopefully) and maybe a couple of simple tutorials in the coming future!! So be sure you check back often, to see what I'm up to.

Hugs to everyone and have a wonderful day!!

Hi Cathy! I'm sorry that the colonoscopy didn't work out. Did you have to take a barium swallow? Eeek, I used to give those to patients and I cannot imagine how they could drink that stuff. It looked NASTY.

I love your card. . .you colored Ian so beautifully! I love the googly eyes on the fish! So cute. Great choice on the dp too! I love everything about your card!
