Hi There Crafty Friends,
  I'm wanting to let you know there is a new challenge starting today at...
Love To Scrap Challenge Blog
The theme for this challenge is...
Boyz Rule!
Our sponsors this month are...

Here's my inspiration card using 'Kidz Boy Fishing'...
Here's what I used to make my card...
Digistamp By: Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Marco Raffine Colored Pencils  
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Country Road' 
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 'Woodlands by Tim Holtz'
Unbranded Frame Die
Handmade 'By My Hubby' Fly Fishing Lure
Fishing Net: Coffee Stained Gauge, Toothpick, Wired Flower Stem
Turquoise/White Cardstock Paper

Here's how I made it...
After cutting the patterned paper to fit the center of the card, I taped it in place. Then I glued the tree die cut onto the top left side of the card. Next I cut the image out with the frame die, then taped it onto the center left side of the card. I then glued the fishing net and fly onto the top right side of the image. 
How I made the fishing net, with my hubby's help: Using a piece of flower stem I had cut off (with a small part of the wrapped paper on it), I made it into a circle and glued the ends together. Then I cut off a square piece of gauge. Bringing the ends of the gauge up through the stem circle then over the top and around, I glued it in place. After cutting off the ends of a toothpick, I glued one end just below the stem circle, where the wrapped paper is, as it is thicker there.
Note about the Fly...Hubby makes them look wonderful, hence using one of his on my card. Now mine on the other hand don't look so well 'kinda sickly, poor things'...he has made several jokes about my poor "bugs" as I call them, lol. But I tend to do my own thing and not follow any set pattern and guess what...the fish seem to like them, LOL.

I hope you like my DT card and it will give you some inspiration. :)
Come on and join us in the fun!
Happy Crafty Hugs,
