Father's Day Card
Went this afternoon to the chain craft store "M" and found this fish stamp. It's by Inkadinkado. It really isn't my kind of stamp but for some reason it kept calling my name so I bought it. I decieded once I got home that I would make a Father's Day card for my son to give to his dad. We have been divorced for over 15 years but I thought it would be nice for my son to give to him. So again I start looking though my challenges cuz God for bid I could come up with a card all on my own. hehehe. So I found CPS-169 Sketch. It was simple but perect for the image. Then since I colored the Big Mouth... no not me. the fish, green I had in mind the colors I wanted to use. Browns, greens, and blues. Stamping 411 #126 color challenge worked out perfect. Got the card together and something was missing. I had even taken the picture already to post and it just wasn't right. It need something else but I can't put flowers on it.. or buttons.. it needed something to do with the fish and it hit me. I need a big hook. I was going to make one out of a paperclip and I remembered I still have my dad's tackle box. My father passed over 16 years ago but I just can't make myself get rid of it. Anyway.. found this giant hook and as much as I wanted to leave it sharp (just by chance he stuck himself.. hehehe.. I am soooo bad.. NOOOOOOO Never would I want that!) *Wink* I got some wire cutters and clipped the very tip off so it isn't sharp. I noticed Little Red Wagon #31 Challenge - Alter an emelishment. I figured what about making your own? I guess we'll see. I think that counts don't you all?
