Paper Play #23 Challenge

Paper Play Challenge #23 – Father’s Day or Man Card

Mama LoveBug decided to work on a Manly Card, which is actually going to be for Papa LoveBug’s birthday next month.  He is still in the working world (respiratory therapist) but the other day he talked about his dreams for retirement.  He said he’d like to get a boat and go fishing.  When our two grandsons get a bit older, he’d like to take them too.  So with that idea in mind I came up with this Fishing You a Happy Birthday.

I found a challenge that fits this card so I’m off to the fishing hole with this card.

*Cardstock in the Manly Blue for base card, embossed second layer, SU topnote for third layer
*Loralie Designs Art Stamp  - man complete with fishing pole and fish
*Of course, what’s a fisherman without a hat
*Watercolors and glitter pens
*Sentiment – Fishing you a Happy Birthday (Pink By Design)
*Frame to showcase the card for his “manly den”

Here’s some info on this challenge blog located at
