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.
