Stamps 35 and 36 My brother says he wants to come up and fish with me. He lives in AL. I don’t think he meant ice-fishing but I thought this would be a perfect card for him. I clipped a little calendar from last years calendar and circled the date for him. When I first stamped this guy, I thought he looked kind of grim, like he wasn’t really enjoying the icy weather, but as soon as I stamped and cut out and put a mess of fish by him, I do believe I saw that smile appear. I cut a slit in the ice and stuck a fish in there on the underside, then add crystal effects and stick the little fishies to it. After adding the ribbon I thought it still needed a little touch of something. I took a marker and made very light lines across. It almost looks crimped and was just what I was trying to achieve. I think I am now finished with the snowmen! Whew!! not sure though, one still might be hiding somewhere.
