Let's Go Fishing!

Good Morning Friends and welcome back!  Only 4 days until Isaac is home for the summer!  And only 14 Days until Lacie's Graduation!  We are officially on the countdown!  The invitations to her party have been completed and mailed out, the food has been decided on (now I just have to cook up a storm until the party!)  Her dress has been purchased (along with new shoes and jewelry!)  I think I am almost ready!  (but, can we just turn back the clock about 18 years because really I'M NOT READY for my baby to be all grown up!) The only positive is that she has a job to go to that is actually in her field of study.  So many kids graduate college and then end up working in a completely different field because they can't find a job and of course they have all those loans to pay. Unfortunately, that will also mean that she has to move away, which makes me very sad!

Anyway, on to today's project.  We are starting a new challenge at Crafting From The Heat this week.  The theme is always Anything Goes!  This week we are sponsored by the Paper Nest Dolls (a prize of $25 voucher!) and Bugaboo (a prize of 7 digis of your choice!) Those are some awsome prizes so come play along!!!

For my card, I have used an image from Bugaboo called Gus Fishing.  I just love Gus! I colored him with Spectrum Noir pens and matted him on some Kraft card stock.  I used a distressed paper for my background and added some burlap ribbon and black dots to finish him off.

So, what are you waiting for??? Get over to  Crafting From The Heart and show us something new!  Remember, the theme is Anything Goes! I can't wait to see what you create!  Oh, and while you are there, be sure to check out all the wonderful projects from our very talented design team.  They work so hard to create beautiful projects to inspire you!

I am entering Gus into the following challenges:

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today!  I hope you will come back again soon!
