Paper Playtime-Say It With Sentiments-Challenge #70

Gosh! March is more than half over! Can you believe it? Me either!! But here it is, the 3rd Monday of the month. Know what that means? Time for a new challenge for Paper Playtime-Say It With Sentiments! And our theme this time around is 'For The Guys'!! Now, I always have a hard time making a 'Guy' card. But I'm gonna tell ya that since I got the It's A Guy Thing stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps, I have an easier time! I just pick a stamp to use and build a card around it. That's what I did with this card. I chose the stamp 'You're the REEL deal!'. I knew that I wanted to use a rod and reel and a fish. I cut the rod and reel and the fish from the Simply Charmed cartridge and the pond is cut from the Create A Critter cartridge. I used some Glossy Accents on the pond to make it shiny. I put a little Star Dust Stickles on the fish. On it's fin and a little dab on the tail. The face is from the Critter Faces Set A Medium from Peachy Keen Stamps. I did a little bit of doodling. I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it down and used my Tim Holtz Distress Tool on it. The bg paper is from atd-momenta-Super Paper Pad-Family Outings. I think this will make a great birthday or Father's Day card. My BFF's Dad loves to fish, so I may give this one to her for him.  It makes him so happy to think she makes cards just for him. I love it!! He is such a sweet man. Head over to Paper Playtime and check out what my DT Sister's have created. Awesomeness for sure!! And then get to creating!! I'm so looking forward to seeing what you make. Link your creation up by noon, EST, Saturday, March 31st. Our sponsor for this challenge is Crop Stop. They are giving one lucky winner a $15 gift certificate. But the only way you will have a chance to win is if you create a project and enter our challenge! See ya there!! Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
