Thanks Dad

Mo's Fishing Man challenge


This month at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Peggy has been the hostess. This is her last week and she has challenged us to create a manly card. Thanks to Peggy (our DT leader) for  some great challenges.

I chose Mo's image Fishing. I got out my prisma pencils for this image.  I have not use them in awhile. 

This image is so precious..  It reminds me of my dad when we were little.  He would take us fishing in our creek on the farm.  We would have a stick and a piece of string for our pole..We would dig up our worms  and head out.  Since there were 8 of us kids I am sure he spent most of his time trying to bait hooks.  Great memories. Thanks Dad...

This image is available over at Mo's Digital Pencil. Come join us in this challenge.  Create a manly card and add it to the link on the challenge blog.

Check out the rest of the team's creations HERE.

I also found a few challenges:
Crafty Angels:  Summer theme
Tuesday Taggers:  Memories
I Love Digi:  Thank You Card
Lili of the Valley Challenge:  Summertime
Quirky Crafts:  Planes Trains and Automobiles...AND BOATS..hehe.

  18. What a great image and you have coloured it fabulously as always!! Love the nestie you used to frame it and the fish hook on the card with a bit of twine if perfect!! Great childhood story too :D I'm sure there was some competition as to who caught the largest fish or the most fish ;D Brought back a memory of my brother and I heading off to the pond on my grandmother's farm with the same type of fishing rod and being so happy when we caught a fish. We'd keep them as "pets" as long as we stayed with her an then would release them before we had to leave.
