It's fishing time again!

For those who don't know me, I love "Peanuts".  They have been my favorite for as long as I can remember.  I thought it was a perfect time of year to use this stamp for a birthday card.

Products used:  Stampin' Up's basic gray and perfect plum cardstock.  Watercolor blender pen used to color the water and sky with Stampin' Up's Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue inks.  Copic markers: YG63, B0000, BV11, B32, B34, Y13, T7, N1 and N4.  Stampabilities Fishing Time stamped with Tuxedo Black in by Momento.  The purple ribbon was purchased at Micheal's a few years ago.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope to have another post later this week.  I have a couple thank you cards to show you.

Father's Day

I hope everyone enjoyed their Father's Day!  We did.  We had Al's family over for a cookout of steaks and brats.  It was a great day with great food.  We didn't have any leftovers, except for potato chips, buns and dessert!  I call that a successful day.  I had time to make a card for my dad and Al's dad, unfortunately, not for Al.  Tim made him a card on the computer instead.  My dad spent part of the day with my 3 sisters and their families on my sister Kathy's pontoon boat on the river.  They had a beautiful day, too!  I wish I could have been in both places at once!  My dad loves old cars, so here's his card...
I used SU's basic brown cardstock (discontinued), old olive cardstock and baja breeze cardstock (discontinued)
I stamped the '57 chevy convertible (discontinued) in baja breeze.  The buttons are SU old olive and I also used hemp to help finish off the card.  Unfortunately, I don't remember who the manufacturer is for the designer paper.  I purchased it at my local scrapbook store.

This is the card I made for my Father-in-law.
This card, I CASed from my Stampin' Up demonstrator, Deb Bird.  We made a card similar to this one at our last stamp camp.  I added the button and ribbon to change it up a bit.  I used SU's basic brown cardstock (discontinued), pacific point cardstock and confetti cardstock (discontinued).  I stamped the bicycle (Feeling Sentimental-discontinued) in Momento rich cocoa and celebrate (Feeling Sentimental-discontinued) was stamped with Staz-on black.  I used pacific point buttons, hemp and brown plaid ribbon (don't remember manufacturer).   Thank you for stopping by!
