Fisherman and Shortage of Poles

Here is a card that I created from a kit I received in February from Carol.  This project is a "card of the month kit" that was just started by Jeanette on SCS. Each month, one of the ladies will receive a kit from each of the other participants.  There are 11 of us in the group, so each person will get 10 different card kits the month they are "up"!  Well--I was up first--for February.  We get all of the kits by the end of the month and then we have the next two months to create a card.  So--I have until the end of April to make and post all of the rest of the kits.  I have three more to go!

Carol sent two images for me to chose from and I went with this cute Whipper Snapper image.  There were many, many embellishments and some great papers to use too.  I loved everything in this kit!  I even added some silver glitter pen to the fish--as Carol loves glitter!  Too bad it does not show up better.

Here is the inside of my card with the wonderful sentiment!

Image/Sentiment—Whipper Snapper Fisherman/Thomas Kinkade Sentiment

Cardstock—White, Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Marina Mist; Karen Foster Designs-Rod & Reel/Lure 'Em In

Please be sure to check back later this month for the remaining cards.
