Cards For Men, Challenge #5

Good morning to all of you beautiful people! This morning I want to share card I made using a stamped background I lifted while on my outing last Saturday. The shop where we were, has a wall of stamps that you can use which is included in the room fee. I tried to snag a few manly images. Here is one and I forgot to write down the designer. If anyone knows who's stamp it is, please let me know so i can give them proper credit. I added the fishy shadows with an unmounted I have had for years, using Going Grey ink from SU! My fishy sentiment is from Rubbernecker. Sponging is done with Baja Breeze, also from SU! The lure images are colored with Copics and my embellishments are silver half rounds, Stickles, and Glossy Accents.

I would like to enter this in the "water" challenge over at Cards For Men. I am new to this challenge site. I never have enough men cards on hand here.

Speaking of water, we are expecting 4" of rain today, and on top of the 3 1/2" from Sunday, much flooding is expected! It will be a great day to stay in and stamp. This is the blessing of picking my own days to work! Thanks for taking a peek!

This is great, and perfect for so many guys out there who love to fish! With our heavy rains today, you could open the window and cast the line huh? LOL
Stay dry if you can and take care!

This has to be the greatest man card I have seen! Wow! What fisherman wouldn't love to get this!!!! We got rain too, and so it melted some of the white stuff we got on Monday, but I told Patti I wouldn't complain anymore after what happened in Japan!
