Reel 'Em In

Hi All! I feel like I have been missing forever. I've been in kinda a "funk" lately. Not sure why but this card brought me out of it. Yeah!! Do you have any fishermen or fisherwomen in your family? If so, this set is just for you. The set is called "Reel 'Em In" and it is new from Doodle Pantry. The layout for this card came from Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge. I think what helped with the "funk" is the memories. At Card Makin' Mamas they wanted us to make a card for a loved one. At Cards For Men they wanted us to make something for someone special. At Sweet Stampin' they wanted a childhood memory. My grandfather would take us fishin' when I was a child. I remember sitting on the dock for what seemed like hours, even though he said it was only minutes. =) So this Father's Day card is going to "Grandpa"!
These are the other challenges I am entering this card into:
Stamp Something - Digi Stamp
Secret Crafter - Use something old from our stash. My paper has been around a long time.
Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
Try It On Tuesday - Boys
Hand Stamped Sentiments - Anything Goes
My Time To Craft - Scallops

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!!
