It’s ice knowing you

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.
