Crafty Catz Challenge Blog - Anything Goes with the optional twist of Male Birthday

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are well this is the first of two blog posts from me today. I am far away in Disneyland Paris with my husband, daughter and son-in-law. It is one of the celebrations of my 60th birthday which is in May. It is much cheaper to go to Disneyland Paris now.

Being Friday the new challenge starts on Crafty Catz Challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes and the optional twist is Male Birthday. The sponsor is Crafty Sentiments Designs. This time the Design Team used their own images.

I wanted to make a card for our friend who is very keen on fishing and enjoys being with his grandchildren. 

Crafty Sentiments Designs have many wonderful images in their store. Click on the logo and you will be taken there. 

This is image is in a digital set called Gone Fishin' which comes from Beccy's Place.  I printed the image onto Neenah card with the sentiment. Then I cut a large circle from some card and placed it over the image and the sentiment.  I used Distress ink with some brushes to create a circle around the image. 

This sentiment comes in the set. Our friend will love it he is retired. 

I used a Creative Expressions die to create the sentiment. 

Have a great weekend.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
