Grandpa's Fishing Buddies

Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers!  (I've always found it odd that Canadians and Americans celebrate Thanksgiving over a month apart on the calendar...oh well, two days to be Thankful for Family and Friends and even more importantly two days of a yummy meal!) 

Today I have another project instead of a card that I'd like to share with you.  Just like creating masculine cards, I almost always struggle with buying masculine gifts...thank goodness for the invention of gift cards!  This year I really want to focus on personalizing gifts, instead of just pulling out my wallet.  My Father-in-Law's birthday was this past weekend and this was the framed drawing I drew for him; meant to represent our two boys enjoying a favorite pass time with their Grandpa. 

I wanted to share this with you today to show you the versatility of Stampin' Up! products.  This drawing was created entirely with Stampin' Up! products.  I line drew the picture on watercolor paper then colored in the silhouettes with a Basic Black marker.  The skyline and water were sponged using a combo of the following colors:
  • Baja Breeze
  • Island Indigo
  • Not Quite Navy
  • Midnight Muse
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Cajun Craze
  • Perfect Plum
  • Rich Razzleberry
Hope this has inspired you to think outside the box with your Stampin' Up! products - they aren't just for cardmaking and scrapbooking!  Have a wonderful day and whether your celebrating Thanksgiving today or not, take a moment to give thanks for whom and what you have :)

Until next time...

Made for use while in each day time as well as at night time, the product interests seafood for your bait and boosts productiveness. The floats are manufactured using high-quality Roy Paulownia wood, and also the lighting is easily put into the top of the floats. They are also helpful for alerting you to chew at nighttime since you will view the radiance shift on the outside from the normal water.

People were conscious about each and every new thing that was marketed and they copied the styles from their Bollywood idols. Bollywood started as a platform for theatre artistes and went on to become a commercial entry to the youths and aspirants for a career in the film and fashion industry.

Investing in gold mining stocks is another option for those interested in gold investment account. Mining stocks offer the potential for higher returns than physical gold or ETFs but also carry more risk. Investors should conduct thorough research before investing in mining stocks.
