I am using another stamp I found at the yard sale at my local stamp store.  My hubby asked if I would make a card for his boss who likes to fish and I thought of this stamp I hadn't tried yet.

Paper Inspirations -- Fishing collage stamp colored with markers
October Afternoon -- Campfire paper
Spellbinders -- Classic square die
Hero arts -- it's your day sentiment stamp colored with markers
Button and twine
Faux stitching with pen

I also want to share a card that sweet DEBBIE sent me last week.  This is one of her beautiful pictures she takes and it is on a card base that has an embossed frame, isn't that so cool.  and I love the little flower she added in the corner too, I didn't take a picture of the inside but there is more flowers on the inside too, great way to dress up the inside of the card.  She also sent another picture of a sunflower up close with a butterfly, sorry I didn't take a picture of that.  Thanks so much Debbie for sharing those with me!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start, we have sunshine this morning so that makes me happy :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

What a great stamp! I like how the plaid and the button all go together, and the sentiment really pops!
