Great Outdoors

When I first saw the Great Outdoors set from Deedee's Digis, it moved to the top of my wish list.  I love cats, my cat is gray and my husband and son are fishermen.  No brainer...I *had* to have it.  LOL  I used the pre-colored version of the cat fishing in the boat but added my own sponged clouds and added some sponging to the water to extend it a bit.

The emphasized technique for the current challenge at the Scrapbook Blessings Club Challenge is to make a wiper card.  I'd never tried one of those but thought the time was right to change that.  If you've never made one, here is a good written tutorial for a Wiper Card on SCS and here is a YouTube video by Beate Johns.  They are really pretty easy.  I'll be making more of these!

My card is going to someone who loves fishing and has been looking for a different job for a long time.  Last week he was offered a position with a new company.  I used one of the sentiments from the Chalk Talk set for the wiper.  I thought this would make a fun "Congratulations on the new job" card.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Recollections (kraft)
Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye Collectable (Remarkable 6 x 6 pad), Three Bugs in a Rug (Frisky 6 x 6 pad)
Stamps:  Deedee's Digis (Great Outdoors, Chalk Talk)
Inks:  Stampin' Up (Bliss Blue), Distress Ink (Peacock Feathers)
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders dies (Petite Ovals Large and Small), Creative Memories 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" square punch, Staedtler fine tip marker (brown), The Twinery baker's twine (cappuccino), buttons from my stash

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Scrapbook Blessings Club Challenge #29 - Anything Goes with an emphasis on Wiper Cards
The Kraft Journal Make It Monday Challenge #188 - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks Challenge #37 - Stitching (Real or Faux)

Clear It Out Challenge - Theme:  Fancy Folds, Stash Item:  Punches or dies (I used both)

Thanks for visiting with me tonight.  I hope you'll give the wiper card a try.  Please come visit again tomorrow when I'll have a new Word Art Wednesday challenge card to show you.
