Keep Calm and Fish On!

Hello my crafty friends!  Just wanted to share a thank you card I made for my hubby to send to his grandpa-- they had their annual boys and grandpa fishing trip last weekend and I of course had to make him a card to send!  Now just to get him to get this cutie in the mail :)  I created it using a cut file I found in the Silhouette Online Store it's ID#83517

And I am of course linking this up for the Challenge happening over at Jaded Blossom and this month the challenge is all about Summer!  So this card is perfect for that theme.  I also used the Jaded Blossom stamp set Fish On!  Adorable right?!??  Enjoy!


Hello my crafty friends!   I found a new BBQ sauce that I am completely in love with so when I went to see some friends this weekend I knew I just had to bring them a bottle to enjoy as well!  But, I couldn't just bring a plain ole bottle now could I!!!

Paper is from my stash... kinda love those big bold stripes!
The big enamel dot was homemade!  Used the giant perler beads.
