Perfect Day Fishing


 
It's been a crazy busy weekend for my family.  This weekend we took a trip to Billingsley Alabama so I could participate in the Almighty Mud Run yesterday.  Talk about a lot of fun.  Meet more of my fellow GORMR (Georgia Obstacle Racing and Mud Runners) team mates, ran with several of the ladies and just had a blast.  Here in the next couple of weeks I'll put together the shadow box for my medal and probably scrap some pics, but for now......
 
I have another Fishing with Dad card to share with you.  Marjorie Ann Designs did a really good job designing this file and as you've probably noticed this is my third card using these adorably cute characters.
 
This time though I wanted to do something a little different.  Especially since I got these cute Splish Splash sequins from over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I thought these little dolphins would be perfect to use with this file in creating a shaker card.  I've never done one like this so it took me a bit to figure it all out.  And while there are some little oopsies I think the overall card turned out pretty good.
 
I also found the perfect sentiment from one of my Craftin Desert Diva stamp sets - Picture That.  To finish off the card (and hide one of my oopsies  :) ) I used a couple of skittles in the color Stream from DoubleClick Connections.
 
And now I'm going to enter this into a couple of challenges - something I haven't done in a while.  The challenges are:
 
Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle - Ends Junes 6th

Craftin Desert Divas - Summer - Ends June 7th
 
DoubleClick Connections - Father's Day or Man's Card - Ends June 9th
 
DL Art - Father's Day Thankful Thursday - Ends June 9th
