A Day to Celebrate

Part two of my masculine digi stash from Digi Stamps Boutique.  
What a life, huh! 
Sitting on a pier, casting a line, gazing out into the ocean, marvelling at the Pelicans. 
I think that I would like to be a fisherman, I mean fisherperson. 
Putting those wormy icky things onto that sharp hook, getting tangled up in your line, smelling fish all day, nowhere to plug my hair dryer in. On second thoughts ....  

I am entering 'Fishing Stan' in the following challenges:

  1. Cooooey! Totally loving these papers together and the fish looks kinda fishy! Fab.U.Lous Darling. xx

  2. Ahh - this is just brilliant Jenny....would you be happy for me to link to it from Facebook? Truly stunning. Sally-Ann :o)

  4. Love how you coloured this too! And that measuring tape paper is fabby.

    Your card/post is so apt for me right now as I'm sitting her snickering a bit as hubby has taken our kids to his Optimist Club's annual fishing derby. See, if I go with them I end up doing all the work. And I mean all the work, like putting worms on hooks and taking fish off hooks and carrying fish up to the station to be measured. (I wear gardening gloves and say "ewwwww, gross!" a lot.) This year I pretended to be asleep until they left. And to make it even better, it's a damp, dark, windy day and the temp is 9ºC. Never mind the snickering, now I'm chortling with glee at my genius for staying in bed. :-)

  5. What an Adorable Card!! Thank you so much for playing with us this week at Love to Create Challenge, Add a Sentiment! We Would Love to Have you Come Create with us again Really Soon!!

    Many Blessings,

  6. Love your description of being a fisherperson with the wormy icky things and fish smell! Must be a man thing, who would want to spend their day doing that? LOL.

    Love your card too, the image and colouring is great and I like the papers with the measurements cos I know size is everything when it comes to fishing. Very clever how you put the extra little tape measure by the fish itself, kind of like a tag. CoB

  7. Love the image and the color combo, Jenny! Fab guy card. Thanks so much for playing in our "Masculine" challenge at Tuesday Throwdown this week. Good luck in the draw.

  10. Hello I have found your blog from the Digistamp Boutique page on facebook and think your cards are just gorgeous. Love the way you put all of the elements together so cleverly. I am from the UK and have just recently started my own blog so am quite new to all this. I would love to hear from you and any help and advice would be very much appreciated. Happy crafting. Andree

  11. Love what you did with this image, Jenny! The papers you used are so cute and your coloring is fantastic!!

  12. This is how hubby and I go fishing. We start out real good then in about 30 minutes I am bored, playing with the pole, getting all twitchy so I bring a book. Joe fishes, I sit and read and since I wear a hat when fishing, no blow dryer needed! Love the card, cute little touch with the measuring tape, need to color this up for my dad for fathers day.

  13. Dammit, blogger ate my comment! Well, I'm not typing it all out again but suffice it to say since patience isn't my strong point neither is fishing! Love the card, so hard to do masculine cards but you nailed it!

  14. Great male card, sweet image and great bp, thanks for sharing at Fab'n'Funky this week.
