Best Fishes!

Hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend. 
I was catching up today on all the blogs I follow and see that My Sherri Crafts has a new "Fishy" challenge this week. 

A while back, when I first had gotten the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge, I had cut several bears in different sizes. I even put a few together and set them aside, knowing one day the perfect time and project would be there waiting for them. 

Well, one of those bears was this little guy dressed to go fishing. 
So when I saw My Sherri Crafts: Time to go Fishin' Challenge I knew I had found the home for that little bear.

Here's how I did it....
Base card made using my Silhouette software; circles and rectangle welded together.
Base card measures 4.25" square
White & red circles for Bobber cut at 4". 
The bear was cut at 2.25" from Teddy Bear Parade cart
Fish punched using CM punch
Tag Die and sentiment from My Craft Spot
Sentiment on Bobber from My Pink Stamper
Twine from Twinery and doodles with my pen.

This is so stinkin' cute! I love that little bobber for the card base, awesome. I will have to remember that when some of the birthdays roll around :) Thanks for the inspiration.
