One Little Fish

     Fishing was something my dad loved to do and, as the favorite (only) daughter who was a dedicated 'tomboy' during childhood, I often got to go with him.  I have extremely fond memories of those days spent at the river or a lake or even on the pier at the ocean.  It was delightfully special time with Dad, even when we caught nothing.  It was called 'fishing,' not 'catching.'  :-D

     This image from Bugaboo Stamps is one of my favorites.

  4. Great image and coloring and love the sentiment you used. There were no fisherman in our family but when camping came around near a lake my kids would sit on a deck and get so excited when they caught a fish...fun times and a fun card you created. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.

  5. What a cute and funny fisherman image! My husband is a big fisherman and grew up fishing with his grandpa. I have loved the times I've gone with them! So glad you shared your cute card with us at Double Trouble!
