Fishing You Were Here

Project #349 of this year
What? It's after Thanksgiving so you were expecting a Christmas card? Yeah, that would have been a good idea too, but today I just grabbed my zippie (ziplock bag) full of pre-cut and assembled Cricut cuts and pulled some out for a quick card.
A2 size card ( 5 1/2" x 4 1/4") with a green card base.
Background paper from a Walmart summer pack.
CAMPIN' CRITTERS used for Deer fishing. It's cut @ 3 1/2".
I'm not sure where the cloud is from, but probably from Create A Critter.
The sun is from GIVE A HOOT and trimmed to fit corner of card.
The grass on the bottom is cut from ??? Sorry. I should probably write on the backs of these cuts before I stuff them in my Zippie of pre-cuts.
"Fishing you were here" is a stamp from K Andrew Designs "Splashtastic Summer" set.


Enjoy today! Tomorrow starts DECEMBER! Ho Ho Ho!

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE PAPER PLAYTIME BLOG HOP SPONSORED BY PSA ESSENTIALS, CLICK HERE!

Before we got to today's OWL SERIES, I want to announce the winner of last week's GIVEAWAY! We had 16 comments with suggestions for the perfect sentiment for my Santa Elf Rudolph card. You guys are so much fun! I'm going to do another giveaway next week, so be sure and stop back by and see how you can enter to win. Lately instead of using random.org I've been using hubbub's random number pick. He didn't read any of the comments (I did though - you guys are very creative!), I just gave him a number range to choose from. He chose #12.... which is....


I read him Pam's comment and he LOVED it! Pam, this is so unlike you. You crack me up. Please email your address to me at Janis at slowar dot com. I'll get your stamps in the mail to you first thing in the morning. :)  So, Congratulations, Pam! You have won the Winter Wishes stamp set by K Andrew Designs shown below:
