If Wishes Were Fishes

Hello! Me again!

A few weeks ago, I had a three way PM going with a couple of my SCS sisters and we decided impromptu, that we would take turns at playing with a card kit we would send each other just to see how different, or the same, our cards would turn out using the same supplies.

Mary was first up and she sent Kadie and I a fishing themed kit with lots of great paper and little embellishment goodies in it. And the image she sent was Mr Fishing Chicken! :) I was a little bit more than happy since I had Anna's 'Hooked On Fishing' cling set with all it's fun fishing sentiments sitting front and center on my craft desk! :)

And this is what I came up with! I used this week's Sketch For You To Try for the layout and used the brads, paper and twine that Mary sent. Mr Chicken was colored up with SU reinkers and an aquapainter. The tags were made with MS tag punch that I picked up at Michaels.

Love Mr Chicken don't you?? Thanks for the challenge Mary - I hope I did you proud! Kadie has her card up and Mary's is posting hers later today. Can't wait to see it! I have got to start thinking about the kit I'll be sending them. Hmmmm....might need to lie by the pool today and think about it some more. ;)
Thanks for stopping by today!
