PP#199 and SC#491: Father's Day card

Hello! Long time no stamp!  My husband bought a new fishing boat and he was determined that I fish in it as soon as possible so that I could "see" how awesome it is in the hopes that I will start wanting to fish 24-7 as he likes to. Hmmm, not sure that will happen, but it was nice to get away. The Canadian weather was beautiful and I did catch quite a few fish!
Today, I was having withdrawals from stamping so I squeezed in a card late this afternoon and ended up taking a picture of it outside. I used Paper Players #199 color challenge along with Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge #491 to create my Father's Day card I made for my dad.  Here are the challenges (note the picture for SC#491 was so tiny and I tried to enlarge it so thats why its blurry):


And here's my card:

Believe it or not, I have NOT placed my first order from the new 2014-2015 catalog! I usually try to hold off a little bit...because I usually want just about everything (no exception this year either)  and I need to really think about it.  It's actually therapeutic to me analyzing and reanalyzing what my order should be. I know strange.  But luckily, I still have my sneak peek goodies to get me through.  So I will least for a little while longer. : )

Here's the goodies I used to create my card:
Well, I hope my dad likes it!  Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!


  1. Love this card Annette! I know your Father will love it as well and have fun fishing!! :-)

  2. Awesome masculine card! LOVE it!

  3. Love your nautical collage-style card! It's beautiful! I like to wait a bit for my first order too....although I have put mine in, still waiting for it, AND I forgot a couple of things, drat! Guess I'll have to put in another one, LOL! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Paper Players this week!

  4. Awesome card, and that juicy lobster has me thinking of our summer holidays, planned out East (not the same kind of fishing as you did but fun nonetheless). Missing my DD buddies!

  5. Love your overstamped background and the touch of twine is the perfect touch. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this week


Thank you for taking the time to post a comment with me! Happy stamping!
