Dylan and Sam Fishing

Welcome to the Make it Crafty Spring Blog Hop!  Today a bunch of MiC gals are getting together and sharing some spring fever creations for you and you can get the list of everyone HERE!  Plus EACH blog will draw a random winner from their comments on Tuesday and the winner will win a free surprise 'Spring Themed' digi stamp not yet released!!  How awesome is that?!  And something you don't want to miss out on!  So here's my project...


I've used the image Sam and Dylan Fishing from Make it Crafty plus a few chipboard embellishments to help finish this project off, including Fancy Ribbon Sliders and N2 Simple Frame.  The N2 Simple Frame actually coordinates with Whimsy diecuts and labels which all together make quick fancy labels.  I used one of the Fancy Ribbon Slider and cut it in half so I could use it as sort of a tag.


The papers are Shine On from BasicGrey which provided a nice bright color pallet.  Around where I live, things are either brown and dead or green and vibrant - so unfortunately this isn't any other season.  So spring to me, means lots of flowers, green grass and bright colors!  I was even able to spend an hour outside gardening this even too - it was great!  Anyway, here's a close up of Dylan and Sam Fishing...


What does spring mean to you?  Or what are your favorite spring colors, activities or whatnot?  Leave a comment below for a chance to win a free surprise 'Spring Themed' digi stamp from Make it Crafty which as not yet been released!  Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you have a great Easter weekend.  :D

  18. Hi Barbara, how are you? Looking forward to the Easter weekend?! I sure am! School's been really busy lately with report cards, parent night and what not! Love your blog hop card, this scene makes for a great 'guy' card. I haven't been making a lot of cards lately, been really hooked on art journaling, but I have decided I need to make guy cards because there is an enormous shortage on those in my stash! So thanks for the inspiration! Hugs Frea

  23. I love this card. It reminds me of my 2 sons that used to go fishing together. It sure brings back memories and what an awesome layout for this image. The coloring and clouds and water are so great. Oh to get to the place where my cards look like yours, that would make me happy. Thank you for sharing this. Hugs, Cathy K

  24. Cute card! Spring reminds me of new beginnings and a fresh start. This card reminds me of when I was little and my dad would take us kids out fishing. We loved being outside but never really caught anything.
