First Fella


This card is in honor of my DH and son Zach going turkey hunting and fishing this Friday and Saturday. My guys came home late last night with no turkey or fish and today just look tired and all pooped out. The Fishafella image is one that I stamped from my friend Bonnie a few weeks ago and is the first Fella card I've ever made.
It was a beautiful day today and most of the day Dan and I did a spring clean up in our back yard, we raked out flower beds, trimmed roses and shrubs, weeded and hosed off the porch then set up the patio set. Were going to take a corner of our back yard and try and make it into a play area for our youngest son Connor, which means that some of the shrubs and a tree need to be transplanted elsewhere. Its like starting all over again, it was only a few years ago that we got rid of the play set we had for our two older kids. I think Connor's going to keep us young or at least keep us busy!


Supplies: Fishafella - Stamping Bella, Cheesecloth BG - Stampin' Up, Basic Grey designer paper, Crystal Effects (on the fish), Copic markers, Eyelet, Linen thread, Pop dots. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Creamy Carmel, More Mustard, Whisper White.

I have this same stamp, but for some reason when I looked at this today it reminded me of a picture of my dad when he was much younger! As always it's fabulous and the colors are perfect. Tell your fella's, sorry and better luck next time. We have tons of turkey's here and they are always running out in front of me, it's like Wild Kingdom. Someone even shot a bear right behind our house, which scares me and there are deer everywhere.
