Fish whisperer

Hi everyone! I’m back on this fine Saturday morning with another card I created for The Outlawz Challenges. This one is for the Festive Fridays Challenge where Bugaboo is our sponsor this month and we have four themes to choose from – Christmas, Male Birthday, Mother’s Day or Sympathy. I chose Male Birthday. My hubby’s birthday is next month and he’ll be the “big six-oh” – and yeah, I’m a cradle robber… what can I say?! And I keep designing all these great cards for him – yep, about seven so far – so he’ll have some good ones to open, lol!

I LOL’d, literally, the entire time I was putting this together… from the image to the front sentiment to the inside sentiment. Funny, funny, funny! I used the Gus Fish Whisperer digital image from my stash along with the sentiments. My husband is a ‘cat whisperer’ (we have nine feline fur babies) so he might as well add ‘fish whisperer’ to his repertoire, lol! I colored him with Nuvo and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I added a fish brad and some Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to his glasses for a little texture.

And here’s where the fun comes in. Well, more fun. I printed the inside sentiment large – for old person ‘large print reading’ purposes and for old person ‘yelling speaking’ purposes. Bahahaha! Then I stamped a fun Hero Arts sentiment beneath it. Love, love, love!

And one more look… OMG, I can’t stand it! So fun! He’s going to love it! ;)
