Did you read that sentiment? I mean REALLY read it? ROFL!!! That sentiment cracks me up! When I saw this in the QKR Stampede store, I just knew I had to make a pretty and girly card for this sentiment and see if anyone really READS it.
I tend to get caught up in looking at the pretty colors and papers and details and sometimes I skip over the sentiments on cards. Do you do that too? This is my way of forcing y'all to do a double-take and look at the sentiment again. LOL

Hi and Happy Wednesday everyone. This is Laralee and it is my turn to post. This is the card that I did for a friend's birthday and he is an avid fisherman. I just LOVE this image and this saying. They are both from the "stampede's" wonderful stamps and just a couple of the ones that will definately work for a man seeing how Father's Day is coming up right around the corner.....and let's face it we all have a male somewhere in our lives that need a card now and then. I colored this image with my copics and a couple of my Tombows. Hope you all enjoy it and get inspired for the male in your life. Have a great day and be sure to come back all week long and everyday from now on, we now have our schedule worked out (BIG THANKS TO CHRIS AND MARIBETH).

I was lucky enough to be one of the first recipients of my May stamps!
Color me happy!
My project today features the stamp 'fishing lure" # 20403.
Our Minnesota opener takes place in May,
so in celebration, my creations this month will be fishing related.
I thought she could use it at work for her out of office sign
when she is 'Gone Fishing'
I started with a Bazzil chipboard luggage tag.
that with the same embossing folder.
I cut a plain oval from white paper and stamped my lure in black ink.
I have two boys of my own and they just love their Daddy. They want to be just like him! When I saw this little guy it made me think of that. I've used the Little Boy stamp for this card. I thought I would go with a blue and green colour combo for this card. I've used some Glimmer Mist to create my own patterned paper - it is really fun to do because it looks different every time!

So I have been trying to experiment with different colors and sizes lately. I tend to use a lot of pinks and purples, so I am trying to stray from the norm a little. I also recently purchased some white ink...which is soooo fun if you have never used it! It just adds such a nice look to darker colored CS. As far as size, I made this card 4" x 4", instead of the usual 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I stamped the Happiness Comes image with white ink onto brown CS. I added some color using colored pencils, which also added a neat look...well at least I thought it did...lol. I then layered the brown CS onto some brown and cream PP which I used a border punch around. This is the first time EVER I have been able to do border punched squares right! Last, I added a couple eyelets and threaded some brown ribbon though and added a bow.
