Fish A'la Mode...

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day! More importantly (to me), today is my husband's birthday. He is out in the field again this week, not the best way to spend his birthday, but not the worst either. Last year, he was in Iraq, and humm, well every other year he has been in Iraq... Anyway, we will celebrate this weekend. So far we have go carts and mini golf on the agenda.

Well, on todays card! I got some fun mail from my BFF, Cassie. She sent me some October Afternoon Campfire dp! Secretly, I had been eyeing that paper for a couple weeks now! So, I paired that dp with this adorable MFT stamp set, and just go together so perfectly. :o)

This card is for two challenges, the first being the sketch challenge at
The Sweet Stop, and the second is the challenge at Our Creative Corner, which is to 'Cut It Out', and for my cutting, I paper pieced the pants, shirt and boots.

Stamps: MFT A'la Modes Something's Fishy,
CDS We Belong Together (sentiment)
Paper: Baja Breeze, OA Campfire dp, Choice Snowhite
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Tools/Accessories: Circle & Lacy Circle Nestabilities,
Pumpkin Pie brads & flower brads, scallop edge punch
Techniques: Paper Piecing

Thanks so much for your visit today!
