CIC22, Final Take, #3

     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. 
The net was recycled from a little bag of candy.  The cool stamps are from Clear Dollar Stamps.  First you stamp these fun circles, then you can add pieces and parts to make fish, pineapples and trees.  Cute!  And I don't have to color anything in.  I haven't got that down well at all.  The sentiment is from a different set but also from CDS.  Just had to put them together!  Love it! 


CIC22, Take Two

I've really enjoyed this stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps.  The wavy sentiments can be trails from the included bee or butterfly, which I used here, or stems for flowers that are part of the set.  Really cute!  I got the Cuttlebug Daisy Quilling set in the mail last week.  That's fun, too!  Here I used a vellum for my focal point.  I can see a lot of scrap paper being cut into quilling strips and made into flowers!  This was my second attempt at the daisy and I liked it enough to put it on a card.  Tada!  Take Two!

Clearly Inspired Challenge #22

     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!
