Gone Fishing!

As soon as I saw the saying included with the die set I used from Cheapo Designs called Gone Fishing Truck that old melody my Mom used to sing to me was recalled. "Gone fishing in an inky dinky pool. Gone fishing! Wish I could be that kind of fool". I think that is about all I recall of the song but it was a real reminder and brought back some fun memories. So with that die in mind I made a masculine card but it would have worked for my Mom as well as she was an avid fisher woman.


I cut the die out with white card stock and then with my Copics did some coloring. I based this card on the color of my hubby's pick up so that is why it is a white one. And, he is a Ford man. However, I love my Chevy Equinox which I drive so I guess you can say we are a divided house in that respect. LOL I also used Gina K. Designs card stock on which I sponged the road, grass and sky. The panels were die cut with a Memory Box Cross Stitched  Border die set. The sponging inks were from Gina K. Designs.

I am entering this card into the Dies R Us Challenge #99-Summertime Fun.

Thanks for the visit and I hope all the dads out there have a wonderful Father's Day!

God bless,
Verna

Love the story and love the card! Quite awesome... both! My dad used to take us fishing when we were really young... of course, at some point I decided I felt sorry for the fish and stopped..lol! But that's me... a bleeding heart. But those were some of my best memories for sure.. Fantastic card!
