My SIL’s 40th Birthday is just around the corner and thought I better get on the stick before I forget!
OMGoodness it was a struggle! No bows, butterflies or flowers, WHEW! I keep thinking it needs more.
I began by wanting to make a card with a frame in the center using the Lattice EF. I masked the sun and used a blend of Not Quite Navy and Pool Party for the water and an image from the Inspired By Nature stamp set for the grass. I didn’t have a fishing pole but knew this fish had to be ‘hooked’ in some way. I simply led the fishing line from it’s mouth casually up to a neat little pile anchored by a brad. Of course we all know what the “40” is about…..lol!
I think Jamie will like it just the way it is. He and Jarrett fish as often as they can so hopefully this will fit the bill……..even without the fishing pole.
A little closer ~
I just had to get a little bling of some kind in there. Check out the fish, a little Glimmer Mist was just what this little fish needed to bring out his shine.
Now for the best part ~ show me the money…..*smile*
I made two slits next to the inside message that will hold his gift. I don’t have to worry about this money falling out unseen. lol I can hear him now “I hope I get more than $5…”. BTW – this is a great card for the mail! Now that’s a good thing, as for Jamie….he’ll have to wait and see. *smiles*
Have a good one everybody, I’m so glad you took the time to stop by!
See you tomorrow…
