Our Challenge this week is One for the Boys and/or the sketch.

Sooooo dive into your stash and find some of those manly things then come show us your creation! Be sure to stop by and see the Great creations from the team.
This card is for my Grandson. His birthday is Sunday and I can hardly believe he will be 12. Seems like it was just yesterday they put him in my arms and I finally understood what all those grammas were always going on about LOL Well anyways enough rambling. Chase loves to fish and his daddy is in Afghanistan right now so he hasn't been fishing lately. I thought I would make him a fun fishing card with the cute Pixie Image Gone Fishin by Di Carubia. Ths water colored image is cut out with a Spellbinder label #3 and added brads to the corners then foam dotted onto the blue. I used some hemp to tie on the button and the fishing hook that my sweetie so kindly let me snag from his tackle box. The sentiment was cut out with at Spellbinder label#17.
