Among other things, my son is a commercial fisherman. He just bought his own boat and will spend most of the summer in Alaska hauling in lots of salmon, Lord willing! My son understands that the Great Physician, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is also the Master Fisherman. I made this card with those thoughts in mind.
Okay, where did February go? I know it's a short month, but I think this year it only last a couple of weeks! Either that, or I'm getting old and that makes time go faster! It's true, I know. Ugh! When I suddenly realized it was March 1, and granddaughter Sequoia is officially 14 months old, I also realized I need to get my entries posted for the Clearly Inspired Challenge. This month it's a sketch challenge. I never know how far I can stray from the sketch so I don't! Here's take one:
I saw a dingbat font that had a smiley little crab similar to this. That gave me the idea. I used punches for all but 6 little legs. The shells in front I made from a small scalloped circle which I cut and scored.
He makes me smile. Hope you are smiling, too!

These cards are an example of how I have actually grown as a crafter. There was no way I could mix prints or not be symmetrical long after I began pasting up cards. Buying paper in pads with coordinating prints put together somehow gave me permission. There's hope for me yet! I still need to learn to color in the lines!

I have so enjoyed using the digital stamps Clear Dollar Stamps made to Help Katie. Using them reminds me to pray for Katie and her family. So. . .here is take 2, using a sentiment from CDS. I ususally make several similar cards once I decide on a plan. In case my lay-out looks a little weird, this is the outside of one card, next to the inside of another.

I am also loving these dies from Clear Dollar Stamps. I find they are the perfect size for so many sentiments I want to add. The sentiment on this card is also from CDS, part of the Help for Katie set.
