Moose fishin?

Hi Friends! Well it finally stopped raining here in doo-dah, now if those dadblasted mosquitoes would just go away! I went out to sit in the backyard for a bit the other night and got too many bites! I guess that means I am sweet right? LOL! Can you believe we are already to middle of the month of June and Father's Day is next weekend? I haven't had as many orders for Father's Day cards as I did for Mother's Day but I figure that is because most guys don't really care about getting a handmade card. Here is a cute little fishing card I made the other night. This little guy is called Riley and they sell a whole line of fun stamps just like him at Riley and Company check them out here. I also bought the golfing Riley because my hubs likes to golf but his nick name when he was growing up was Moose! I will post that card later...but I digress...I scored this great "boy" paper pad by My Mind's Eye at Michael's and it's just perfect for Father's Day cards. I colored our little friend with a few Copic markers. I am really just getting the hang of using them so I don't have a whole lot of different ones for shading and such but still I think it turned out pretty cute. I have recently been into using a white gel pen to put fun little accent lines here and there on the colored images and it just adds that fun little touch.

Well thanks for peekin' in! I am still working on Angelina's baby book...moving slow and there is so much ground to cover...hope I can get enough done before the birthday party so keep your fingers crossed!

That is a really good guy's stamp. They are out there if you look for them hard and I know you did. I still need to make Ray and my Dad their Fathers Day Cards.
