My Sheri Crafts Challenge #104: It's Fishin' Time

Yep, it's fishin' time here at My Sheri Crafts, so we want to see your project with a fish on it!
I went back and forth several times with this challenge, trying to decide what I wanted to do and in the end I die cut my fisherman using my Boss Kut Gazelle and a free die cut from Bird's Cards. If you have an electronic die cutting machine and you've never visited Bird's blog, you are missing a special treat.  Her files all cut beautifully and they're free! Go check out all her wonderful creations and leave her some love!
I used paper purchased years ago from Close to my Heart, as the BG makes me think of a big bridge over a body of water.  My little fish stamp is one I've had for many years also. It has no manufacturer or name on it, but I decided I'd use my Twinkling H2O's for his shiny scales, though the photograph doesn't do it justice. My 'Fishing you' sentiment (Our Craft Lounge) is a little play on words -- I'll likely add 'a Happy Birthday' inside for one of our sports-minded male friends.
Can't wait to see your clever ideas for a fishing project -- share it today with us @ My Sheri Crafts!!!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge #103: Valentines

For our challenge this week @ My Sheri Crafts, we're asked to "show some love to the ones you love"!  I chose to make a simple Valentine's Day card.

I cut a strip of Martha Stewart Designer Paper (Enchanted Woodland Mat Pad) just slightly smaller than my A2 card and using Spellbinders' Classic Scalloped Hearts, I made a partial die cut into the top of the DP with the lower part of the heart die. I then punched the top edge of that same DP with a Fiskar's scallop punch and attached it to my card's lower edge. Using the reverse side of the same DP remnant, I die cut my scalloped heart and attached it with pop dots into the cut-out of my card's border. The 'Will you be my Valentine?' sentiment (Studio G) was stamped in Memento's Rose Bud ink onto a snippet of cream CS, edged with Worn Lipstick distress ink and cut into an arrow shape. Finishing the card off is a single strip of the same 'mesh' as used in my MSC #100 post here.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit my fellow DT members posts too and then get busy creating a project to share @ My Sheri Crafts that "shows some love to the ones you love"!  ;~)
