Fishing ~ Wish Big!


Paola on SCS came up with a wonderful idea for a swap—Mo Manning images.  And, Mo-Maureen—herself was a visitor to the thread.   Paola and Maureen posed some trivia questions for us to answer and we were able to win prizes--and I did win a gift certificate to her store the first nightJ.  I have a few digital images files—however this was the first one that I actually printed out and colored for a card.  I also have some rubber stamps by Mo and love those too.  I think I will be using more digital images in the future--love the storage space they free up!

I took two spots in the swap and the second card will follow in a couple of days.

Image/Sentiment—Mo Manning-Fishing/Stampin’ Up Short & Sweet

Cardstock—
SU Early Espresso; PTI Ripe Avocado, Kraft; Reminisce Fishing Patterned Paper

Ink—SU Early Espresso


Accessories—Copic Markers; Kraft Brads; SU Oval Punches

I have entered this card into the following challenges:
Mo Manning-anything goes w/Mo
Paper Crafting Journey--Summer
Digi Doodle Shops Best-Sports
Totally Papercrafts-Here Comes Summer


On a personal note--the weather is to break today and we are to be "only" in the high 70's--YAY!!!!  We have our annual family and friends 4th of July cook-out, so cooler temps are so appreciated.
